Summer may seem a long way off but everything’s guaranteed to be ‘alright’ as Nineties trailblazers bring their stereo-pumping shenanigans to Windsor Racecourse for an unmissable open-air fixture.
Enjoy a full day out like no other, with a big day of racing at one of the UK’s most prestigious arenas, with the added bonus of a full set by Supergrass late into the evening.
From first single Caught By The Fuzz in 1995, the band wowed press and public with their fantastic sound, a frantic explosion of energy, humour, hooks, and sonic references to everyone from The Beatles to Roxy Music.
Supergrass (Gaz Coombes, Mick Quinn and Danny Goffey, along with longterm collaborator Rob Coombes who officially joined the lineup in 2002), would go on to score an unbroken run of five Top 10 albums spawning ten Top 20 singles including anthems such as Alright, Mansize Rooster, Richard III, Sun Hits The Sky, Pumping On Your Stereo and Moving.
In the 13 years between their first album and their last they were chased by fans in Japan, scored the biggest-selling debut for Parlophone since The Beatles, were helicoptered into Glastonbury, turned down a Calvin Klein pants ad, toured the world on their own and supported Blur and Arctic Monkeys to Foo Fighters, Radiohead and The Cure.
They parted in 2008, but now they're back and ready to perform some big gigs, including the 17,000+ capacity fixture at Windsor Racecourse.
