Suede and Manic Street Preachers Edinburgh presale: How to get tickets for the co-headliner castle gig
Manic Street Preachers are one of the most influential and iconic rock bands to have come out of Wales. They have gone on to release 14 studio albums and have headlined countless festivals including Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival and Reading & Leeds. They have won eleven NME Awards, eight Q Awards and four BRIT Awards and were also nominated for the Mercury Prize and the MTV Europe Music Awards.
Meanwhile, Suede’s recently released their ninth studio album 'Autofiction' to acclaim, and sold-out a huge UK headline tour earlier this year. This year also saw the release of Suede30 - a timely reminder of how the band’s debut album had such a powerful and transformative effect on British music from the outset. Suede’s eponymous debut shot to number one in the UK Album Charts upon its release selling over 100,000 copies in its first week, winning the prestigious Mercury Music Prize and becoming the fastest-selling debut album ever in the UK at that time.
Last year saw the two bands co-headline a US tour and now they are bringing the double-header to the UK - with an Scottish date in summer 2024.
