The Cardigans have announced that they’ll be heading out on tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1998 album ‘Gran Turismo’.
The Swedish indie veterans’ fourth album saw the band adopt a darker and more experimental sound, blending rock with electronica. It contained the singles ‘My Favourite Game’, ‘Erase/Rewind’ and ‘Hanging Around’. The album peaked at No.8 in the UK.
Now, they’ll be performing the album in full at their ‘only shows of 2018’ with gigs in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London.

Merry Christmas baby!https://www.axs.com/uk/series/6693/the-cardigans-tickets?skin=aegpresentsukThese are the only dates of 2018. We were hoping to get a few more, but it wasn't doable for now.
The band, who formed in 1992, went on hiatus between 2007 and 2011. However, the band have not released a new studio album since 2005’s ‘Super Extra Gravity’.
“It’s really fun to do greatest hits things, since there’s nothing else,” said singer Nina Persson in 2014, “but I think if we continue having this much fun we would like to make another record, because we like to create new things.”
