Suede took to the stage at London’s 100 Club venue last night for what was their first UK show in seven years.
The gig, organised as a warm-up for the band’s upcoming show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in support of Teenage Cancer Trust, featured a career-spanning set by the group’s ‘Coming Up‘ era lineup.
Frontman Brett Anderson (pic), who has reformed the band without former key member Bernard Butler, told the crowd at the end of the show: “All I have to say is I loved playing tonight. It’s been beautiful. Lets do it again in another seven years time.”
Anderson and co will move on to Manchester tonight for their second warm-up gig at the Ritz, afterwhich they will play their Royal Albert Hall show on Wednesday (24th), where they will be supported by British four-piece These New Puritans.
