Amazing fans, amazing night: Black Rivers to raise curtain on Man City’s new season

Manchester City will launch their 2015/16 season on August 5 with the annual ‘City Live’ music and awards party at Manchester Central.

The night will be headlined by Manchester band ‘Black Rivers’, who are led by lifelong blues fans and former members of ‘Doves’, Jez and Andy Williams.

Now in its third year the much anticipated event will be hosted by Sky Sports presenting duo Natalie Sawyer and Mike Wedderburn.

Fans can expect to be part of a night jam-packed full of football and entertainment, indeed last year’s event was used to announce the signing of a five-year-contract by superstar striker Sergio Aguero.

Club captain Vincent Kompany said:  “City Live is something all the players look forward to, it’s the perfect opportunity to thank the fans for their amazing support.

“It is also a great way to welcome the new signings to the club and show them what being a part of City is all about.”
