The National announces Manchester Castlefield Bowl for 4th July 2024

The National have announced a huge outdoor show at Manchester’s iconic outdoor amphitheatre, Castlefield Bowl for Thursday 4th July, 2024. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 17th November from

Formed in New York in 1999, The National’s last five albums have all been in the Top 5 in the UK charts. 2023 has been another landmark year for the band, with the release of two studio albums: First Two Pages of Frankenstein in April and a surprise companion album, Laugh Track, released in September. They celebrated these releases with a UK tour that included two sold-out nights at London’s Alexandra Palace.

Laugh Track is the band’s most freewheeling, all-hands-on-deck album in years. If Frankenstein represented a rebuilding of trust between group members after 20+ years together, the vibrant, exploratory Laugh Track is both the product of that faith and a new statement of intent.
