MANCHESTER legends Black Grape have rescheduled their seven concerts originally planned for this October.

They will head out early next year with gigs including Holmfirth Picturedrome on March 5 in Leeds Warehouse on March 13.

The tour will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Black Grape’s debut album ‘It’s Great When You’re Straight…. Yeah’, originally released on August 7, 1995.

The album went to number one and gained platinum status first time round. A three CD deluxe edition was released in November 2016.

The album, recorded at Rockfield Studios with producers Danny Saber, Stephen Lironi, Shaun Ryder and Gary Kurfirst (executive), spawned ten hit singles, with ‘Reverend Black Grape’, ‘In the Name of the Father’ and ‘Kelly’s Heroes’ reaching the Top 20

The tour kicks off in Holmfirth on March 5 with founder members Shaun Ryder and Kermit Leveridge on vocals.

Shaun Ryder said: "I'm really looking forward to getting back out on the road with Black Grape and playing all the favourites from It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah’ with some Pop Voodoo!!"
