Saint Etienne To Play More Fox Base Alpha Live Gigs

Saint Etienne To Play More Fox Base Alpha Live Gigs

Saint Etienne are to perform two more Fox Base Alpha shows in London and Manchester this October, after the success of two sold-out shows in London earlier this year.

As well as performing their 1991 debut live in its entirety again, the band - Sarah Cracknell, Pete Wiggs and Bob Stanley, are also re-issuing 1993's So Tough and Sound of Water from 2000, as Deluxe Editions on August 31.

Both releases will feature the original album, an extra disc of session tracks - including several previously unreleased songs, along with B-sides and extensive sleeve-notes.

'So Tough' reached No.7 in the UK album chart when it was released and produced hit single "You’re In A Bad Way".

Full track listings for both Deluxe Editions are below.

  • Manchester Ritz (October 15)
