Following the announcement at the end of 2015 for seven shows celebrating
the 20th Anniversary of the MANIC STREET PREACHERS fourth album ‘Everything
Must Go’, the band have now confirmed there will be a very special reissue
box set of the album which will feature vinyl, CD’s, DVD’s and a book. The
band’s 21 song performance at the Nynex Arena in Manchester to over 20,000
people on 24th May 1997 has been fully restored will be available in full
for the first time both on CD and DVD and long-time collaborator BAFTA
Award-winning director Kieran Evans (Kelly & Victor) has shot a new film to
accompany the album. There will also be a double CD and both formats will
be released on 20th May 2016, exactly 20 years to the date of the original
album. 2016 also sees the band celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their
formation in Blackwood, South Wales.
The live shows will see them play the album in full for the very first time
and then after an interval, returning to play some of their greatest hits,
new songs and some seldom heard nuggets from their twelve album history.
Editors will join the band as special guests for the tour, excluding Swansea
where Super Furry Animals and Public Service Broadcasting will support.
Prior to the UK shows they play dates in Europe and headline the Victorious
and Truck Festivals later in the summer.
Originally released in spring 1996, ‘Everything Must Go’ was the band’s
first massive commercial success. The record was certified triple platinum
in the UK and went on to sell over a million copies and bag multiple Brit
awards. It features four top ten singles (‘A Design for Life’, ‘Everything
Must Go’, ‘Kevin Carter’ and ‘Australia’). Touring the record, the band
played an early show in the tiny basement bar of the Haçienda to headlining
to 20,000 people at Manchester’s Nynex Arena in less than twelve months.
Although some songs from ‘Everything Must Go’ are still cornerstones of
Manic Street Preachers gigs, several of the album tracks haven’t been played
live since ’96.
