Manic Street Preachers announce film documenting Holy Bible anniversary tour

BE PURE. BE VIGILANT. BEHAVE was directed by Kieran Evans

Manic Street Preachers have announced details of the premiere of a new film, documenting their celebrating anniversary tour of ‘The Holy Bible’.

The band embarked on The Holy Bible tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic 1994 album from 2014-2015 – taking in huge gigs at Cardiff Castle, a residency at The Roundhouse in London and even a rare jaunt to the US. The shows have been made into a documentary by the band’s long-time collaborator, the BAFTA-winning director Kieran Evans.

BE PURE. BE VIGILANT. BEHAVE will premiere this month.


“The 65 minute feature, documenting the band’s The Holy Bible 20 tour in 2014/2015, will debut at Premiere Cinemas Cardiff on 19 October as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations of the city’s much loved Swn festival,” say the band in a statement.

The last album to feature guitarist and lyricist Richey Edwards before his disappearance, and tackling dark subjects from anorexia to prostitution and the holocaust, ‘The Holy Bible’ is widely regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time.
