Manic Street PreachersWelsh veteran alternative rockers the Manic Street Preachers perform a medley of hits from their eleven studio albums including 2013's Rewind The Film, their first record since 2010. The title track of the album features Sheffield crooner Richard Hawley on vocals alongside Manics frontman James Dean Bradfield, while the first single Show Me The Wonder is a classic Manics track - an upbeat nugget of pop with soaring horns, a joyous chorus and some questioning lyrics. The rest of the album is a more reflective, stripped-back, acoustic affair which should keep one of the UK's most lasting rock bands in the limelight for a while longer. They will also offer a preview of tracks from their planned follow up album, Futurology.

 

About Brixton Academy

This former cinema with its art deco interior, proscenium arch and 140ft dome is London's most celebrated venue for live music, winning Best Live Venue at the NME awards for 7 years in a row. The famous sloping floor means there are great views wherever you're standing, though keeping your feet can be a problem at the more raucous rock gigs. More about Brixton Academy
