Ocean Colour Scene’ story is already the stuff of legend having been a staple of over 20 years of UK pop culture at its very best.

They’ve nine albums under their belt, three of which hit the Top 5. 1996’s ‘Moseley Shoals’, 1997’s ‘Marchin’ Already’ and 1999’s ‘One From The Modern’.

They’ve also had nine successive Top 20 hit singles starting with 1996’s ‘The Riverboat Song’.

Their achievements have been nothing short of phenomenal, even giving Brit-pop giants Oasis a run for their money knocking ‘What’s the Story?’ off the top spot in 1997 with ‘Marchin’ Already’.

Tickets for Ocean Colour Scene go on sale on 8 April at 9 am but you can sign up for a 24 hour earlier pre-sale at Bedford Park Concert’s social media pages.

Ocean Colour Scene on Saturday 31 August will be the third of four shows at Bedford Park.
