Manic Street Preachers – UK Tour 2013
Welsh alternative rock band, Manic Street Preachers has announced they will be touring later this year. The tour is set to start around the same time as they plan to release their latest album.
The upcoming Manic tour is set to take place throughout the course of September, this year. Starting on the 13th of September, Manic Street Preachers will perform in Newport, before travelling to the following locations throughout the UK: Dublin, Bristol, London and Manchester. They’re final performance of the tour will be in Glasgow on the 29th of September.
New album “Rewind The Film” will be released during the tour on the 16th of September, 3 days after the band kick start their tour at Newport Centre. The title track of the album has been made available for instant download on iTunes with each pre-order of their new album. The band described the title track of the album as “a relation in the Manics back catalogue, it’s probably the sedate coming of age that was This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours.”
Manic Street Preachers were formed in 1986 in Blackwood. The band was originally a quartet until the disappearance of fellow band Richey Edwards, who has since been confirmed deceased. However, the other members of the band: James Bradfield, Nicky Wire and Sean Moore continued to carry the band name and soon became one of the best rock bands in Britain. Together, they gained three UK Number 1’s through their singles: “This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours”, “If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next” and “The Masses against the Classes”.
With the release of an album and a tour at the same time this year, we recommend you buy them both to witness this amazing talent, LIVE. Manic Street Preachers Tickets available here:
