The shows will be some of the biggest live dates of their career and their first headline gigs since December 2019.
As well as commemorating the 30th anniversary of their influential landmark album, they will play a selection of greatest hits spanning from similarly essential albums such as ‘XTRMNTR’ and ‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’.
Last year the Scottish rockers released two new versions of their 1991 seminal album ‘Screamadelica’. This included a 10-disc 12” Singles Box of the singles from the original album campaign alongside Andrew Weatherall ‘Shine Like Stars’ remix, with the second release the album’s first ever picture disc format.
The previously unreleased ‘Demodelica’ collection is also out now and provides a new insight into the album’s creation, with a variety of early demos and work-in-progress mixes.
The package is completed with new liner notes by Jon Savage, an author and journalist renowned for documenting British music culture with books such as ‘England’s Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock’ and ‘The Hacienda Must Be Built’.
