Two of the UK’s most influential rock bands will co-headline at the Eden Sessions on Saturday 29th June 2024. SUEDE and MANIC STREET PREACHERS will perform in Cornwall as the second stop on their major joint UK and Ireland tour next summer, commemorating 30 years since the iconic bands first took to the stage together.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of a sold-out joint tour in the United States and Canada last year, with dates coming up later this year in Japan, Singapore and Taiwan.
Each band will play in front of the iconic Biomes for around 75 minutes, promising to deliver a musical experience of sounds that have left an indelible mark on the British music scene and earning each of them NME’s Godlike Genius Award.
Led by original frontman Brett Anderson, SUEDE have forged a monumental path in British music culture. With four UK number one albums and eight top ten hits, they are known for their compelling and provocative music, which has seen them play at multiple festivals around the world, including Coachella, Glastonbury, Reading and V Festival.
Their debut self-titled album, which includes singles Animal Nitrate and Metal Mickey, reached the top of the UK Albums Chart, making it the fastest-selling album of its time and earning the band a prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 1993. The band’s ninth studio album, Autofiction, went straight into the Official Album Charts at number two in September 2022, marking their best album performance since their fourth album, Head Music, in 1999.
MANIC STREET PREACHERS will be returning to the Sessions stage, having performed to a rapturous sell-out crowd in 2016.
The Welsh indie pioneers have a horde of accolades under their belt from their 14 studio albums, with a 15th in the pipeline. Boasting two UK number one singles and albums, the band has sold more than 10 million albums globally, earned 11 NME Awards, eight Q Awards and four BRIT Awards, and received nominations for the Mercury Music Prize and MTV Europe Music Awards.
Known for hits including If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next and Motorcycle Emptiness, it’s their triple platinum album Everything Must Go that became the band’s most successful. Released in 1996, the fourth studio album debuted at number two and remained in the Top 100 for 104 weeks.
