Upon its initial release in September 1996, ‘Coming Up’ was heralded as a bold step for Suede and a determined move into pop, following the dark moods and tones associated with the band’s second album ‘Dog Man Star’. ‘Coming Up’ was both a critical and commercial success and the album topped the UK album chart, as well as being nominated for the 1997 Mercury Prize.
The album spawned five top ten singles in the UK and the success of the new, fizzy pop sound of ‘Trash’, ‘Beautiful Ones’, ‘Saturday Night’, ‘Lazy’ and ‘Filmstar’ made the record Suede’s most commercially successful to date. Many of the album’s key tracks are mainstays in the band’s live set to this day and the band’s front-man Brett Anderson has previously described ‘Trash’ as being Suede’s defining song.
Suede’s October UK shows will provide fans with the chance to see the band play ‘Coming Up’ in full, a timely reminder of the abundance of light and shade within the band’s sound and amazing catalogue.
Tickets will be available from suede.co.uk at 9am this Friday, 7th February with a fan pre-sale from 9am this Wednesday, 5th February.
