Welsh rock band to celebrate 1998 album with spring tour
Manic Street Preachers have announced they will embark on a 12-date UK tour in 2019. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 9am on Fri 26 Oct.
The tour coincides with the 20th anniversary of seminal album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours. To mark the occasion the Manic Street Preachers will release a 20 Year Collector's Edition which is available from Fri 7 Dec. The album, which features hits, 'The Everlasting', 'If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next' and 'You Stole the Sun from My Heart', came out in 1998 and debuted at No.1 in the UK charts. Those who order the collector's addition will receive a signed copy as well as earlybird access to presale tickets.
The This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours tour will be dedicated to the album which will be played in its entirety for the shows. The band promise to celebrate in style with plenty of surprises in store for attending fans. The trio teased that they hope to add a Welsh show to the tour which will be announced later this year.
