Manic Street Preachers are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their album ‘Everything Must Go’ with a national tour including two nights at Royal Albert Hall.
The band will play album in full plus a second set of curios, B-sides, and hits at the London landmark on 15 and 16 May 2016.
Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on 11 December.
Editors will support the band on tour, including the Royal Albert Hall shows, while Super Furry Animals and Public Service Broadcasting are the special guests at a giant Liberty Stadium celebration in Swansea.
Originally released in May 1996, ‘Everything Must Go’ was the Welsh band’s first bonafide commercial hit, spawning four UK top 10 singles – ‘A Design for Life’, ‘Everything Must Go’, ‘Kevin Carter’, and ‘Australia’ – that remain a staple of their live sets to this day.
The album went on to sell over a million copies, win multiple BRIT awards, and achieve triple platinum certification in the UK and saw the group sell out the 20 000-capacity Nynex Arena in Manchester.
The 20th anniversary tour will feature an entirely new visual backdrop based around the album’s iconic artwork and follows the hugely successful 20th anniversary shows honouring their third album, ‘The Holy Bible’.
But James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire, and Sean Moore are by no means running on nostalgia. In 2013 and 2014 they released two of the best albums of their career – ‘Rewind The Film’ and ‘Futurology’ respectively – and are currently working on new material that will be debuted on the upcoming tour.
