Manic Street Preachers have announced an intimate 12-date UK tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours.
Kicking off on 14 May 2019 in Cambridge, the band will perform in Bath, followed by two nights each in London and Manchester, before hitting Birmingham, Southampton, Edinburgh, York, Liverpool and ending in Leicester on 31 May 2019.
Manic Street Preachers formed in Blackwood, Caerphilly in 1986 and consisted of cousins James Dean Bradfield – on lead vocals and lead guitar – and Sean Moore on drums, plus Nicky Wire on bass. They were joined in 1989 by Richey Edwards who became the band’s rhythm guitarist and lyricist.
The group became a trio after Edwards disappeared in February 1995 and was legally presumed dead in 2008.
This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours was the band’s fifth studio release, and won the NME Award for Best Album in 1999, as well as being nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. Manic Street Preachers have released 13 studio albums during their career, the most recent being Resistance is Futile in 2018.Last updated: October, 2018
