The Wedding Present To Play Best Anniversary Tour

Leeds indie rock band The Wedding Present have announced they will play a series of shows this October.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the release of their debut LP - "George Best" - the group fronted by David Gedge will play the album through in it's entirety.

For the British leg of the tour the band plan to revisit each of the towns played on the original George Best tour of 1987.

There is much renewed interest in the band as last month, Sanctuary Records released a box set comprising The Wedding Present's John Peel sessions, as well as numerous interviews and live performances broadcast by the veteran broadcaster.

The shows announced so far are:

Stirling Fubar Live (October 23)
Edinburgh Liquid Rooms (24)
Glasgow Queen Margaret Union (25)
Manchester University (26)
Liverpool Academy (27)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (28)
Birmingham Academy (29)
Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (30)
London Koko (31)

Following these UK shows, the band are planning to play selected
dates in the rest of Europe.
