European Tour Dates Announced


Following a hugely successful end to 2011 with the release of the top ten singles collection ‘National Treasures’ and a celebratory sold out show at the O2 Arena in London in December, MANIC STREET PREACHERS will head out in April and May for their first European tour in ten years.  

The tour will see the band perform a SELECTION of songs from their 38 track singles compilation ‘National Treasures’.  The London show received rave reviews (see below) and these gigs will be a must see for all die-hard Manic fans.

“each song is a tremendous affirmation of their stature in British rock”   –Guardian *****

“when they’re having their stadium-sized choruses bellowed back at them by 20,000 people all with their arms in the air, they look like they’re having the time of their lives” – NME

“they have never fully surrendered the punk spirit that propelled them from a school hall to the biggest arenas in the country” – The Times ****

“hearing one of the best bands of the last 20 years power their way through the likes of ‘Suicide is Painless’, ‘Little Baby Nothing’ and ‘Kevin Carter’ is a genuine thrill. – The Independent *****
