Pulp will return home to Sheffield this coming December for a special one-off show at the city’s Motorpoint Arena.
The gig will take place on Saturday, December 8th, and was announced by the band on Twitter, where they told their followers: “Pulp come home for Christmas. Sheffield Arena, Saturday 8 December 2012. Tissues optional. Presale starts now!”
The announcement of the gig stretches Pulp’s reunion still further, after the ‘classic’ 90s line-up initially reformed last summer for a series of headline and festival appearances across Europe. They have since toured the US this year and also performed in London for the Teenage Cancer Trust, while frontman Jarvis Cocker recently suggested the band writing and recording new material is becoming a stronger possibility thanks to the success of their comeback shows.
“I don’t know about that,” he told NME when asked about new material. “I mean, I’ve enjoyed doing these shows because the idea was, could we manage to do it again, to make it feel like it was worth doing and to make it sound right? And I think we managed to do that.”
“I suppose once you’ve done that, the next thing is; would you make some new music? I’ve enjoyed the fact that we haven’t been doing any new stuff, because I feel that’s kept it quite simple. It’s hard one. We haven’t been in the studio or anything. I don’t know what will happen in the future.”Just Published:
