The Screamadelica Live tour will be completed by a selection of greatest hits spanning similarly essential albums such as ‘XTRMNTR’ and ‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’, and will see them play some of the biggest shows of their career.
Tickets costing €49.90 including booking fee for Fairview Park on 22nd June go on sale Friday 21st January at 10am at Ticketmaster.ie
The ‘Screamadelica Live’ tour adds to the band’s celebrations to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their influential landmark album. Last October saw the release of two new versions of the album. A 10-disc 12” Singles Box compiles nine replicas of the singles from the original album campaign alongside Andrew Weatherall’s recently unveiled ‘Shine Like Stars’ remix, all pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The second release is the album’s first ever picture disc format.
The previously unreleased ‘Demodelica’ collection then followed on October 15th. It provides a new insight into the album’s creation, with a variety of early demos and work-in-progress mixes. It was released on digital, double-vinyl, CD and C90 cassette formats and the package is completed with new liner notes by Jon Savage. The author and journalist is renowned for documenting British music culture with books such as ‘England’s Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock’ and ‘The Hacienda Must Be Built’.
