Indie rockers The Wombats are headlining Bolton’s Olympic concert this summer.
Queen’s Park will host the trio on May 31 as 66 other nationwide events take place to celebrate this year’s London Olympic Games.
The free ticketed event will feature a range of Greater Manchester entertainers and families can apply for up to four tickets.
The Wombats said: "We’re over the moon to be among the acts involved with the musical feast laid on by Coca-Cola in celebration of the Olympic Torch Relay.”
Deputy Leader of Bolton Council, Councillor Linda Thomas, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that The Wombats are coming to Bolton. Championed by Sir Paul McCartney, and with a platinum album to their name, the band has developed a huge international following. We’re sure the crowd will love them.”
Director of Olympic Torch Relay, from the Coca-Cola Company, James Williams, said: “We are taking some of the nation’s most exciting musical talent on the road with the aim of getting Bolton along with the rest of the UK moving to the beat.”
