Indie heroes Suede return with new tour

PUBLISHED: 14:19 21 June 2013




INDIE heroes Suede are continuing their triumphant return to Britain’s stages with a new tour – which includes a stop-off in Bristol this autumn.

Rated ‘the best new band in Britain’ after exploding onto the scene in 1992, Brett Anderson, Bernard Butler et al racked up a string of hits throughout the 1990s.

Their self-titled breakthrough was the fastest-selling debut LP in a decade, and helped breath life into the emerging Britpop genre.

Suede’s list of singles from that era read like a soundtrack to the decade; Animal Nitrate, So Young, Filmstar, Trash, Beautiful Ones… the list goes on.

Fans feared the end of the road for the band when they split in 2003, but an initially tentative reunion in 2010 has since been followed by the release of the first album in more than 10 years, Bloodsports.

And the good news for West Country Suede fans is that the group’s new tour will take in Bristol’s O2 Academy on October 24.

Tickets, priced at £29.81, are available from
