"From humble country road to the the most fashionable street in Europe, Oxford Street has been home to such colourful characters as highwayman Jack Wild, writer and opium addict Thomas de Quincy and shopping impresario Gordon Selfridge.

The Happy Mondays, Rebel MC, Tom Jones and Sinead O'Connor join in a unique and eclectic musical celebration of this retail mecca and its history."
