Manic Street Preachers announce huge show at Swansea Liberty Stadium

Manic Street Preachers will headline Swansea Liberty Stadium on Saturday 28 May 2016.

The Welsh rockers will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Everything Must Go with the landmark gig, performing their classic album, as well as a second set featuring more of their biggest hits.

Super Furry Animals and Public Service Broadcasting will join Manics at Swansea Liberty Stadium next summer.

Tickets for Manic Street Preachers go on sale at 09:00 on Friday 13 November, just head to Ticketmaster.co.uk.

Everything Must Go was originally released in spring 1996 and was the band’s first massive commercial success. The record was certified triple platinum in the UK and went on to sell over a million copies and bag multiple Brit awards. It features four top ten singles – A Design for Life, Everything Must Go, Kevin Carter and Australia.

Touring the record, the band played an early show in the tiny basement bar of the Haçienda to headlining to 20,000 people at Manchester’s Nynex Arena in less than twelve months. Although some songs from Everything Must Go are still cornerstones of Manic Street Preachers gigs, several of the album tracks haven’t been played live since ’96.

This show also marks Manic Street Preachers’ biggest headline date since their sell out gig at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium in 1999.
