Suede wrapped up their reunion tour by playing their biggest indoor show ever at London's O2 Arena tonight (December 7).

The reunited five-piece, led by Brett Anderson, played a huge set performing hits from their first four albums – 'Suede', 'Dog Man Star', 'Coming Up' and 'Head Music'.

Speaking ahead of tonight's gig, frontman Anderson told NME it was a fitting way to wrap up their current tour, which has also seen the band perform at the UK capital's 100 Club, Royal Albert Hall and Bush Hall.

"We did the Albert Hall when we came back and thought, 'Where do we go from there? We can't step down a gear'," he said. "So someone suggested the O2 and it seemed like a crazy, vain, glorious enough thing for us to do."

He also confirmed the band will sit down and decide their future over the next few days following the show.

"We're playing our cards close to our chests so we'll just see how it goes and how we feel after," he added. "The whole mantra with this tour has been to keep it special and to take it one day at a time. So in a couple of days we'll sit down and decide what we want to do next year, if anything."

Anderson said very little throughout their greatest hits set, which included 1993 single 'Animal Nitrate' – footage of which you can watch below.

But he interacted with the crowd frequently, often shaking hands with audience members.

Rounding off the show with 1997 single 'Saturday Night' he hinted at the band's future: "Thank you so much, thank you so much. What can I say, it's been a lovely night and it's always so special to play in London. You might see us again sometime."
