Tickets for Primal Scream's June 22nd Fairview Park gig go on sale this Friday, 21st January at 10am.
Primal Scream are slated play their first headline shows since December 2019 this summer, with a Fairview Park date confirmed this morning.
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 U. The outfit will play some of the biggest shows of their career in the coming months.
The ‘Screamadelica Live’ tour adds to Primal Scream's celebrations to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their influential landmark album. 'Loaded', along with second single 'Come Together', formed the high of the record.
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.
Meanwhile, charismatic Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie released his new autobiography Tenement Kid on October 28th, 2021. The Glaswegian's memoir ultimately tells the story of how the singer rose from his working-class Glaswegian roots to lead one of the biggest bands of the '90s.
