But Bernard Butler won't be joining the band

Suede are to reform for a one-off gig, it has been confirmed.

The band, who split in 2003, are to play a benefit gig for Teenage Cancer Trust at London‘s Royal Albert Hall this March.

However, original guitarist and key member Bernard Butler, who quit the group in 1994, will not feature in the reunion. Instead, Butler‘s replacement Richard Oakes will play guitar for the show (the date of which hasn’t been released).

Speaking of the reunion, the band’s old label boss, Nude‘s Saul Galpern told NME.COM that it is only for “a one-off gig”.
