Primal Scream

Story by Jack Foley

DUE to phenomenal demand Primal Scream have added a third date to their Screamadelica tour… in 2011.

The band announced they would be playing the landmark album in its entirety at two gigs at London’s Olympia on Friday and Saturday, November 26 and 27, 2010. Tickets sold out almost immediately.

Owing to the popularity of those shows, a third date has now been announced at London’s Brixton Academy on Friday, March 25, 2011, from 9pm to 3am.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, October 1, 2010, at 9am.

Primal Scream decided to play the November gigs in order to mark 20 years since the creation of their mind-blowing landmark album.

Since its release in September, 1991, Screamadelica has been hailed as the defining musical statement of the 90s, often cited as one of the greatest albums of all time.

It scooped the first Mercury Music Prize in 1992 while the late Paul Cannell’s cover design was recently chosen as one of the Royal Mail’s 10 classic rock album stamps.
