Trending Now

After four rapturously-received shows in Glasgow and Blackpool, the long-anticipated Verve reunion tour arrived in London last night, and Uncut was at the front to witness their powerful return.

Richard Ashcroft, Nick McCabe, Peter Salisbury and Simon Jones played a greatest hits set that lasted for over two hours. One new song was unveiled, called “Sit And Wonder”, while one rarity, “Let The Damage Begin” (the b-side to “This Is Music”) was dusted down.
