Reformed Nineties band Suede have confirmed their first live date of 2011, continuing the successful reunion which was initiated last year.
After announcing their reunion, Suede returned to the live stage in March 2010 at London’s 100 Club, minus influential former member Bernard Butler. They went on to enjoy a series of successful shows, and were presented with the Inspiration gong at the recent Q Awards.
Following the band’s gig at London’s O2 Arena last December, frontman Brett Anderson spoke of their desire to carry on into 2011, telling digital station XFM: “We all really enjoyed the tour. The O2 was really special as well, and I think we all enjoying doing this at the moment… I think in all likelihood we’ll probably carry on doing stuff next year.”
Now, those plans have been rubber-stamped with the news they will play Spain’s SOS 4.8 festival, which is due to take place between April 30th and May 1st.
Suede will be joined at the event by the likes of White Lies, Everything Everything and Two Door Cinema Club.
