Question: what do Oasis, The Smiths and The Stone Roses all have in common? Answer: they were all massive British bands, they all hailed from Manchester and (the crucial one) none of them are playing in Falmouth on Saturday 16 July.

Another question: what do Oaysis, The Smiths Presumably and The Total Stone Roses all have in common? Answer: you guessed it. They’re all performing on the same stage together in Falmouth on Saturday 16 July.

Manchester Calling, Falmouth‘s number one tribute act night in 2022 for mega Manchester bands of yesteryear, should be a barnstormer of an evening, not least because it’s at Falmouth‘s Princess Pavilion. This beautiful multipurpose live music and theatre venue overlooks Falmouth Bay and some of the town’s best beaches. It’s nestled in the serene Gyllyngdune Gardens so when the bands strike it up on the stage, the noise resonates perfectly.

Of course, the bands that the tribute acts are channelling are household names, so we don’t need to wax lyrical about how the Gallagher brothers caused a champagne supernova with their chart-topping hits in the 90s or how The Stone Roses wanted to be (and very much were) adored in both the 80s and 90s. And there was panic on the streets of, well, anywhere that The Smiths played in the 80s. Well, not panic… more like clamouring to get a ticket.

The three acts are each at the top of their tribute game so they should attract a fair number of live music fans from Falmouth‘s surrounding areas to the show. In fact, it’s a shame there isn’t a Manchester Calling Penryn or a Manchester Calling St Mawes to keep the Madchester vibe going on around the Fal Estuary all week. But, to be honest, you only need one night. One night in Manchester.
