Supergrass have today announced they are reforming for a theatre tour of the UK, Europe and North America in 2020. The thirteen date tour will kick off in Paris on 4th February, before the UK leg culminates with a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace on 6th March 2020. Tickets go on sale Friday 13th September from 09.00am.
The seminal British group declared their improbable comeback on Friday night (6th September) in a suitably bold manner, taking to the stage unannounced at Glastonbury Pilton Party to rip through a mesmerising Greatest Hits set, including ‘Richard III’, ‘Moving’, ‘Alright’, ‘Caught By The Fuzz’ and more.
‘Everything aligned for us to make this happen for 2020. It was the first time that we collectively felt the buzz to get back in a room together and play the songs. We’re extremely excited to get out there and bring a bit of Supergrass joy to all our fans… and their extended families.’Danny Goffey
Tonight Supergrass will also play an intimate show at Oslo, Hackney. Announced on Saturday (7th September) in the aftermath of their electrifying Pilton set, the tiny underplay show sold out in a matter of seconds as fans scrambled for a chance to see the band in the most intimate of confines ahead of 2020’s tour.
A career spanning Best-of package ‘Supergrass: The Strange Ones 1994 – 2008’ is also unveiled today. This comprehensive box set, marking the 25th anniversary of ‘I Should Coco’, is a celebration of Supergrass’ incredible career and is released on BMG on 24th January. It contains their 6 original albums on picture disc LP and CD, bonus CDs of unreleased live material, B-sides, remixes, rarities, studio out-takes, demos, acoustic versions, oddities, new mixes, a deluxe book, posters and button badges. It also features over 6 hours of previously unreleased audio material. The boxset contains 5 previously unreleased instant grat tracks.
