Manic Street Preachers add extra ‘Everything Must Go’ 20th anniversary tour dates

The new dates lead up to the band's previously announced show at Swansea City Football Club on May 28, 2016

Manic Street Preachers have added extra dates to their ‘Everything Must Go’ 20th Anniversary tour.

The band originally announced a special one off show at Swansea City Football Club’s Liberty Stadium on May 28, 2016.

They have now announced six additional dates which will take place throughout May, preceding the final night of the ‘Everything Must Go’ 20th Anniversary tour at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium.

The shows will all follow the same format, with Manic Street Preachers playing two sets each night. The first set will be a full rendition of the band’s fourth album ‘Everything Must Go’, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year. The second set will consist of “rarities and curios, greatest hits and a few brand new songs.”

Released in 1996 ‘Everything Must Go’ featured four top ten singles including ‘A Design For Life’, ‘Everything Must Go,’ ‘Kevin Carter’ and ‘Australia.’ Several tracks from the album have not been performed live since 1996.

The ‘Everything Must Go’ 20th Anniversary Tour will begin on May 13 at Liverpool’s Echo Arena. The band will then take in Birmingham, two consecutive nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Leeds and Glasgow before completing the run in at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium.

Editors will support the first six dates before Super Furry Animals and Public Service Broadcasting join the band as support for the final night in Swansea.
