Inspiral Carpets Announce UK Tour

Madchester favourites Inspiral Carpets are to play a series of UK dates next March.

Following up their highly successful comeback shows in 2003 – which included three sold-out Manchester shows as well as appearances at Glastonbury, V Festival and T-in the Park - the Inspiral Carpets are back again.

Together with the Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses, the Inspiral Carpets brought psychedelic indie-guitar "Madchester" kicking and screaming into the mainstream.

The band will draw on material from their Top 20 albums including "Life" (1990), "The Beast Inside" (1991), "Revenge Of The Goldfish" (1992) and "Devil Hopping" (1994) at the shows.

Catch the band live at the following venues:

Birmingham Academy 2 (March 2)
Glasgow ABC (3)
Lincoln Engine Shed (4)
Norwich Waterfront (5)
Brighton Concorde (7)
Leeds University Stylus (8)
Manchester Academy (9)
London Shepherd’s Bush Empire (10)
