Manic Street Preachers and Suede have announced a joint headline tour of the UK.

Manic Street Preachers are one of the most influential and iconic rock bands to have come out of Wales. They have gone on to release fourteen studio albums and have headlined countless festivals including Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival and Reading & Leeds. They have won eleven NME Awards, eight Q Awards and four Brit Awards and were also nominated for the Mercury Prize and the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Manics are currently working on their fifteenth studio album, the follow up to The Ultra Vivid Lament which entered the UK charts at number one on its release in September 2021. They last performed in the UK in 2023 when they made critically acclaimed performances at Isle of Wight and Glastonbury festivals.

The news of the tour meets huge demand surrounding the success of Suede’s ninth studio album Autofiction, and their entirely sold-out UK headline tour last year. Debuting at number two in the UK Albums Chart, the release marked Suede’s highest charting LP since 1999’s Head Music. The new album has been received as a career peak by fans and critics alike.

2023 has seen the release of Suede30 – a timely reminder of how the band’s debut album had such a powerful and transformative effect on British music from the outset. Suede’s eponymous debut shot to number one in the UK Album Charts upon its release selling over 100,000 copies in its first week, winning the prestigious Mercury Music Prize and becoming the fastest-selling debut album ever in the UK at that time.

Suede and the Manic Street Preachers’ UK and Ireland shows will follow a sold out 2022 US tour that saw both bands greeted with a fantastic reception. This tour for both legendary bands will be a unique opportunity to experience their renowned live performances with both acts taking turns to close the concerts.
