Story by Jack Foley

SUEDE have announced an extended run of European dates for October, including UK shows in Edinburgh, Manchester and London.

The gigs will see the band playing their classic, third album Coming Up in full, as well as a generous smattering of hits and treats.

Tickets will be available from at 9am this Friday, February 7 with a fan pre-sale from 9am this Wednesday, February 5.

The Coming Up live dates are (all October 2020)

18 – Germany – Berlin Tempodrom
19 – Netherlands – Amsterdam AFAS Live
20 – France – Paris La Salle Pleyel
22 – Edinburgh Usher Hall
23 – Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse
24 – London Alexandra Palace
26 – Denmark – Copenhagen Falconer
27 – Sweden – Stockholm Annexet

Upon its initial release in September 1996, Coming Up was heralded as a bold step for Suede and a determined move into pop, following the dark moods and tones associated with the band’s second album, Dog Man Star.

Coming Up was both a critical and commercial success and the album topped the UK album chart, as well as being nominated for the 1997 Mercury Prize.

Coming Up spawned five top ten singles in the UK and the success of the new, fizzy pop sound of Trash, Beautiful Ones, Saturday Night, Lazy and Filmstar made the record Suede’s most commercially successful to date. Many of the album’s key tracks are mainstays in the band’s live set to this day and the band’s front-man Brett Anderson has previously described Trash as being Suede’s defining song.
