Manic Street Preachers

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

The Welsh rock titans play an intimate show, with support from The Anchoress, for the 25th Meltdown festival.

The band returns to Royal Festival Hall following the release of their 13th studio album, Resistance Is Futile.

With a career spanning over three decades, the Manic Street Preachers have toured the world with their politically charged anthems and sold more than ten million albums worldwide.

One of Britain's premier rock bands, the Manics have won 11 NME Awards, including the Godlike Genius Award in 2007, eight Q Awards, four BRIT Awards, and were twice nominated for the Mercury Prize.

The group has reached Number 1 in the UK charts three times: in 1998, with the album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, the single ‘If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next’, and again in 2000 with the single ‘The Masses Against the Classes’.

Support comes from The Anchoress, who is the songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and author Catherine Anne Davies.

She performs from her critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Confessions of a Romance Novelist.
