Britpop band Ocean Colour Scene have announced they will be performing at The Engine Shed in 2010.

Due to play in Lincoln on March 2nd, the band will be celebrating 20 years in the music industry with the new tour. To date, the Birmingham band have released five studio albums, four compliation albums, four live albums, a B-side collection CD and four DVDs.
