Manic Street Preachers and Suede have announced that they’ll be embarking on an iconic co-headline tour of the UK and Ireland in Summer 2024, culminating in a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace Park on 18th July.
Both bands are no strangers to life on the road: Manic Street Preachers are currently working on their 15th studio album - the follow up to 2021’s ‘The Ultra Vivid Lament’ - while Suede completed a sold-out tour of the UK earlier this year in support of their ninth album ‘Autofiction’.
Of the upcoming co-headliner tour, Suede’s Brett Anderson has said: “I can’t think of a band I’d rather share a stage with than the Manic Street Preachers. They have long been an inspiration to us, and I know there are thousands of Suede fans who feel the same. It’s nearly 30 years since we last played together and I think these shows are going to be something really special.”
Agreeing, Manic Street Preachers have added, “We first toured with Suede in 1994 when we played with them all across Europe. Back then, it always felt like both our bands shared a certain kind of kinship, both aesthetically and historically. It still feels that way now, nearly three decades later.”
