Suede to play first three albums live at Brixton Academy


Story by Jack Foley

SUEDE will play three very special concerts at London’s Brixton O2 Academy in May (2011) at which they will play their first three albums and related material over the three successive nights.

The band will also release their entire studio catalogue in re-mastered and expanded versions on Demon Records in June 2011.

The gigs follow their sold out performance in December 2010 at London’s 02 Arena which garnered an ecstatic response from fans and critics alike.

The Brixton O2 Academy dates are (all May 2011):

19 – Suede play Suede
20 – Suede play Dog Man Star
21 – Suede play Coming Up

Tickets for the shows go on sale on Friday, January 28 at 9am.

Full details of the bonus audio and visual content of the album/DVD packages will be released shortly.

In the meantime, Suede – Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling – have been working on the album content and re-mastering with founder guitarist Bernard Butler.

Brett Anderson commented: “This is the definitive collection of pretty much everything we released in 14 years together – and some stuff which we didn’t. It’s all re-mastered and includes unreleased, never-before-heard oddities and gems which even I’d forgotten about. It’s the complete audio history of a band and, like any band of interest, it’s flawed, strange and sometimes beautiful.”
