Trio to take control of Millennium Square...
The Cribs

The Cribs have confirmed plans for a huge one off show in Leeds later this year.

The much-loved indie group were brought up in nearby Wakefield, making this a homecoming of sorts.

The show takes place on July 22nd in the city's Millennium Square, with support acts set to include Thurston Moore, Pulled Apart By Horses and Menace Beach.

"Over the last couple of years, whenever someone asked us when we would be playing in Leeds again, we always said that we were saving something special for our hometown show," the band said. "We didn't feel like we could just show up and play a regular show. We felt an obligation and expectation to come back and try to top those gigs. The idea that we kept coming back to, was to curate and stage our own mini-festival, with bands and artists that we love."

"This is what everything has been building towards. The Cribs show to end all Cribs shows. This is gonna be our Live Aid/Wembley 86/Reading 92/Spike Island/Knebworth (delete as applicable). It's been 3 years in the making, and finally everything has come together. A summer's night out under the stars in our favourite town, with our favourite artists, and hopefully all of our favourite people (you guys, of course). Come and feel the love."

The Cribs will play Leeds' Millennium Square on July 22nd.
