Primal Scream’s 2022 UK tour dates are as follows:

Earlier this year, the group marked the three-decade milestone of ‘Screamadelica’ with a 12-inch singles box set and double-vinyl picture disc. ‘Demodelica’ – an album of unreleased material boasting early demos and work-in-progress mixes – followed on October 15.

Meanwhile, frontman Bobby Gillespie recently opened up about his upbringing in a Glasgow tenement, saying that he constantly felt “like a failure” as a child.

“Kids like me were judged to be stupid because the educational structures designated us as such,” he explained. “We were set up to be labourers, or unemployed, on the scrapheap. I wanted to learn, but I wasn’t given anything to learn, and I didn’t know how to ask.”
