HUNDREDS of Islanders lined up outside a town music shop to get their hands on tickets for a concert featuring members of Britpop icons Ocean Colour Scene.

An acoustic show on 11 May at the Drift in the Royal Yacht Hotel will feature a 金光佛论坛済reatest hits金光佛论坛 performance by Simon Fowler and Oscar Harrison, from the indie rock group.

The duo will be supported by singer-songwriter Steve Pilgrim, the former drummer for the alt-rock band The Stands.

A queue for tickets outside Island Music in Bath Street stretched into Minden Street, with tickets selling out in eight hours.

The show forms part of a series of community-focused events and concerts showcasing international and local artists organised by Island Music.

Shop owner Paul Sharkey said: 金光佛论坛淚t is important to be more than just a shop. We want to bring people together and reach different demographics.

金光佛论坛淚t is amazing to have members of Ocean Colour Scene play. They were the band who got me into playing guitar, so it金光佛论坛檚 amazing to be able to book them for a gig. It金光佛论坛檚 all come full circle.

Mr Sharkey took over the business in July last year, fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning a music shop, after former owner Jonathan Scriven retired after 33 years.
