This year, The Coral’s eponymous debut album turns 20 years old, and the band are celebrating in style. Their 20th anniversary tour has gone down a storm, as has the remastered version of the record, which included one of the band’s biggest hits, ‘Dreaming of You’. The popular Merseyside group have now confirmed the latest addition to the 20th anniversary celebrations…
A brand-new signed book entitled, ‘The Making of the Debut Album’ will be released alongside an eight-date UK book tour. It shares the story of their journey as childhood friends right through to the making of the debut album, with 1,500 signed and numbered copies available for pre-order now here.
Fans who purchase will be treated to band commentary and unseen photography, along with an exclusive CD featuring a live recording of The Coral performing their debut album in full at their recent Liverpool Invisible Wind Factory show.
The tour will consist of an intimate evening of conversation and music with singer, James Skelly, and keyboardist, Nick Power, with acoustic renditions of tracks from the debut record confirmed. Tickets are available from 10am Friday via https://www.awaywithmedia.com/tours/thecoral-20-years-on. Tour dates listed below…
