Manic Street Preachers Announce Three More UK Shows

February 15, 2011 by  

The Marmite of the British music scene, Manic Street Preachers, have announced they are to play three shows in May 2011, including one in Cardiff.

The three dates will see the band headline in Cardiff for the first time since 2007 and also travel to Llandudno and Wolverhampton.

Manic’s bassist Nicky Wire had this to say of the shows ?We are really looking forward to playing Cardiff CIA again as it has been over three years since we played there. It will be a great warm up for the festival season and a perfect way to end what has been a brilliant campaign for ‘Postcards From A Young Man’. On the last dates (and these coming up) we?ve been playing lots of songs from our past too which has been really enjoyable.?

Support on all shows comes from The Joy Formidable and the band release the title track of their new album ?Postcards From A Young Man? as a single on 28th February 2011.

Full May dates below:

13 May HAMBURG, Markthalle
14 May AMSTERDAM, Melkweg
16 May DUBLIN, Olympia
18 May LLANDUDNO, Cymru Arena
19 May WOLVERHAMPTON, Civic Hall
