MANIC STREET PREACHERS ‘Everything Must Go’ Anniversary Tour

Manic Street Preachers  have announced details of more dates celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their fourth album ‘Everything Must Go’.   The band had already revealed details of a very special show at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium and these May 2016 dates will follow the same format with the group playing two sets on the night, the album in full followed by rarities and curios, greatest hits and a few brand new songs.  Editors will join the band as special guests for the tour, excluding Swansea where Super Furry Animals and Public Service Broadcasting will support.

After the incredible response to their twelfth studio album ‘Futurology’ in 2014, which came less than a year after the previous album ‘Rewind The Film, the band completed an outstandingly creative period with dates playing their third album ‘The Holy Bible’ for its 20th Anniversary.  The success and outstanding critical and public acclaim for the gigs prompted the band to go out again with ‘Everything Must Go’

Originally released in spring 1996, ‘Everything Must Go’ was the band’s first massive commercial success. The record was certified triple platinum in the UK and went on to sell over a million copies and bag multiple Brit awards. It features four top ten singles (‘A Design for Life’, ‘Everything Must Go’, ‘Kevin Carter’ and ‘Australia’). Touring the record, the band played an early show in the tiny basement bar of the Haçienda to headlining to 20,000 people at Manchester’s Nynex Arena in less than twelve months.  Although some songs from ‘Everything Must Go’ are still cornerstones of Manic Street Preachers gigs, several of the album tracks haven’t been played live since ’96.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
