Last week, Manic Street Preachers and Suede confirmed a surprise co-headline tour for 2024, taking place throughout June and July next year.
The two iconic and influential bands will grace stages in Wales, Ireland, and Scotland, along with outdoor shows at Castlefield Bowl (Manchester), Millennium Square (Leeds), and Alexandra Park (London).
Following the comeback success of ‘The Ultra Vivid Lament’ and ‘Autofiction’ records for Manics and Suede respectively in recent years, both bands are busy working on new projects.
Manics are working on their 15th studio album, while Suede are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Mercury-winning eponymous debut album, the fastest selling debut album in the UK at the time of release.
The two groups first joined forces last year for a sold out tour of the US, with widespread critical acclaim leading to additional Asian dates confirmed for next month.
Now, they return home, and tickets are expected to fly out upon release this Friday (13th October) at 9am.
Ireland tickets will be available via www.ticketmaster.ie.
