AFTER enduring some of the most brackish times in British music The Bluetones are calling it a day with a swansong tour.

It is 15 years since their début album Expecting To Fly knocked Oasis’ (What’s The Story ) Morning Glory? off the number one spot in the UK album charts and delivered top 20 singles in Bluetonic, Slight Return and Cut Some Rug.

It made Mark Morriss and chums music mag cover stars and while they’ve long dropped out of the mainstream they’ve continued touring and releasing five more records. “The Bluetones have decided the time has arrived to call it a day and move on to other challenges,” says the frontman.

“Before disappearing forever, though, we will be heading out for one last tour as a chance to say farewell and thank you to all the fans that have sustained us over these years, with a career-spanning Greatest Hits/Best Of-style set of songs. It’s gonna be emotional.”

Tickets for the September 13 show at Sheffield O2 Academy2 are on sale today.
