See the Manic Street Preachers Live!

On Thursday, Welsh rock giants, Manic Street Preachers will be playing 'Bristol Sounds' at Bristol's Harbourside Amphitheatre

Whilst starting work on their 13th studio album, the trio have recently announced a 10 year collector’s edition of their eighth studio album ‘Send Away the Tigers’, this follows the bands’ sell-out arena tour last year. Manic Street Preachers will be supported by indie rock band British Sea Power and Welsh multi-instrumentalist The Anchoress.

To win tickets to see the Manic Street Preachers live, all you need to do is listen to Kam Kelly at Breakfast all this week! 

More about Bristol Sounds

Bristol Sounds, a four-night midsummer gig series on Bristol’s Harbourside, has been announced featuring headliners Bonobo, Manic Street Preachers, Craig David and Haçienda Classical. Taking place from Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th June in the Amphitheatre, tickets are now available online and to personal callers at the Bristol Ticket Shop.

Kicking off the four day event on Wednesday 21st June is the Brighton-born and LA-based DJ and producer Bonobo, whose sixth album ‘Migration’ has just been released. Having already sold out London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace in just minutes, this show is a real coup for Bristol.

Craig David will then be heard across the Amphitheatre to get the city’s weekend started on Friday 23rd June. The UK garage pioneer, whose last album “Following My Intuition” topped the UK album charts, has been selling out venues across the country and comes to Bristol as part of a huge nationwide tour.

The final night in the gig series will see Haçienda Classical take to the stage on midsummer’s eve, Saturday 24th June. The brainchild of former Haçienda club DJ’s Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, the reimagining of club anthems with Manchester Camerata Orchestra has earned them huge critical acclaim. Guest collaborator will be former Joy Division/New Order bassist and Haçienda co-owner Peter Hook, along with some very special guests.

The four concerts are expected to see over 20,000 fans enjoy live sets in the spectacular setting of Bristol’s Harbourside.
