    Cities are increasingly being marketed as sites of consumption in order to attract tourists. In this paper we examine the extent to which cities are aiming to capture the 'tourist gaze' through the cultural promotion of their musical heritage. We illustrate our arguments using promotional literature from, and a questionnaire survey of, a number of cities in the United Kingdom. The case study of Manchester is then considered in greater detail.
