Sponsored by Red Square Reloaded

Attracting audiences of over 100,000, the Pops is held every July in the luxury 4,500 all-seated Big Top Arena, Liverpool, in the heart of the 2008 European Capital of Culture, and among the world's most famous music cities.

Currently planning it's 5th season, it has developed into one of the premier music festivals in England. The roster of acts since 2001 reads like a who's who of contemporary music, including BOB DYLAN, PAUL SIMON, ELTON JOHN, ERIC
CLAPTON, BRYAN ADAMS, MEAT LOAF, RAY CHARLES, TOM JONES, LIONEL RICHIE, TONY BENNETT, BURT BACHARACH, JAMES BROWN, YES, PAUL WELLER, SIMPLY RED and
dozens more.

With work due to start on the new Liverpool Kings Dock Arena, the event, which runs from June 27 until July 24, will now take place on the Central Docks site, on Waterloo Road.

The Mersey Docks and Harbour Company, which controls the site, stepped in to provide the alternative river front location, which is still within easy walking distance of the City Centre.

Mike Storey, Leader of Liverpool City Council, said: "I'm delighted that we have a waterfront site for the Summer Pops again this year. Central Docks is a fantastic new venue for the Pops. It has everything the event needs. It is still right in the heart of the City. The Mersey backdrop and watching its fantastic sunsets before the show starts is part of what the Summer Pops is all about. Kings Dock will soon be the home to one of the best entertainment centres in the UK. Meanwhile, Mersey Docks has provided the city with an excellent Summer Pops location."

The Summer Pops site at Central Docks will receive a major facelift in preparation for the traditional green and yellow Big Top Arena.

Andrew Martin of Mersey Docks' Estate Department said: "With the Summer Pops fast approaching, we are pleased to have been able to provide such an ideal alternative to Kings Dock. Central Docks is as close to the City Centre and as easy to access as Kings Dock and mirrors the same impressive water front location."

Summer Pops promoter Chas Cole said: "I am very happy with our new site, it is a wonderful location, close to Liverpool city centre and still by the River Mersey so we will retain the unique waterfront atmosphere."
