Suede announce extra UK tour dates for December 2023
By Classic Pop | April 24, 2023
Suede have announced four additional UK headline shows will be added to their 2023 Autofiction tour, beginning on 9th December at the Winter Gardens, Eastbourne before Lincoln’s Engine Shed (10th), Portsmouth’s Guildhall (11th) and Wolverhampton’s The Halls (13th). The tour then closes with two headline shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
Tickets will be on general sale from 09:00 BST Friday 28th April here.
The news follows the sold-out and rapturously received UK leg of the tour through March 2023, with the extra dates meeting huge demand surrounding the success of Suede’s ninth studio album Autofiction.
The LP debuted at No.2 in the UK Albums Chart and was Suede’s highest charting record since 1999’s Head Music.
On the penultimate night of the first leg of the Autofiction tour, 29 March 2023, Suede surprised fans in Manchester performing a special set to mark 30 years since the day of the release of their classic self-titled debut album.
A rare set list included eight songs from their debut album-era in ‘She’s Not Dead’, ‘Breakdown’, ‘Moving’, ‘Pantomime Horse’, ‘Animal Nitrate’, ‘So Young’, ‘Metal Mickey’ and ‘My Insatiable One’.
Suede recently announced details of a new project titled Suede30. The band’s eponymous debut shot to No.1 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.
Special limited edition 30th anniversary releases, newly mixed and mastered, are due for release from 7 July 2023. Pre-order here.
Ahead of the UK December leg of the Autofiction tour, Suede will perform at festivals including Kite, Forest Fest, Beautiful Days, Live /s Live in Belgium, Norway’s Bergenfest, Spain’s Vida Festival, Musica En Grande, Visor Fest and Ciclo De Las 1001 Músicas, Denmark’s Smukfest, Flow Festival in Finland and more.
