Britpop legends Saint Etienne have announced a performance at the Manchester O2 Ritz.

Formed in Croydon in 1990, by music journalist Bob Stanley with childhood friend Pete Wiggs and joined by singer Sarah Cracknell, Saint Etienne arose within the context of the indie-dance movement of that era but created a unique sound that – albeit accidentally – paved the way for what would later become known as Britpop.

Ashley was also behind two hit series of Flirty Dancing on Channel 4, appeared as a guest judge in place of Simon Cowell on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent 2021, and hosted a new Saturday night show for ITV, entitled The Void, last summer.
