Manic Street Preachers Announce Dublin Gig to Celebrate “Holy Bible” 20th Anniversary

The band will play one of the most celebrated albums of all time in its entirety.

Twenty years after the release of the Manic Street Preachers’ third album The Holy Bible, the band have announced dates in December where they will play the album in its entirety for the very first time.

The band have never played the whole record for an audience before, so these special shows are billed as a must-see for fans.

Tickets are priced from €39.05 including booking fee and will go on sale this Friday, the 26th of September at 9am via Ticketmaster.

The London dates at the Roundhouse are almost 20 years to the date since the band played three gigs at the London Astoria, which turned out to be their last live performance with guitarist Richey Edwards who went missing a few months later.

The band recently released their number two charting 12th studio album Futurology which came within a year of their previous album Rewind The Film, also a top five record. A 20th anniversary edition of The Holy Bible will be released later this year with further details to follow.

8 December GLASGOW, Barrowland

10/11 December MANCHESTER, Albert Hall

13 December DUBLIN, Olympia Theatre

15/16/17 December LONDON, Roundhouse
