Primal Scream released their class psychedelic album Screamadelica 30 years ago last year, and the tour that was marked for its anniversary has been pushed into 2022 for obvious reasons.
So that means, Primal Scream will play the album in full next June 22nd 2022 at Fairview Park on Dublin’s Northside.
The show will see the band perform the album in full in a tent. So you’re guaranteed to hear ‘Higher Than The Sun’, ‘Movin On ‘Up’, ‘Don’t Fight It / Feel it’, ‘Slip Inside This House’ and ‘Loaded’. Yes, a very classic album indeed.
Tickets are €49.90 plus fees and go on sale Friday January 21st at 10am from Ticketmaster.
The Screamadelica Live tour will be completed by a selection of greatest hits spanning similarly essential albums such as ‘XTRMNTR’ and ‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’, and will see them play some of the biggest shows of their career.
The ‘Screamadelica Live’ tour adds to the band’s celebrations to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their influential landmark album. Last October saw the release of two new versions of the album. A 10-disc 12” Singles Box compiles nine replicas of the singles from the original album campaign alongside Andrew Weatherall’s recently unveiled ‘Shine Like Stars’ remix, all pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The second release is the album’s first ever picture disc format.
The previously unreleased ‘Demodelica’ collection then followed on October 15th. It provides a new insight into the album’s creation, with a variety of early demos and work-in-progress mixes. It was released on digital, double-vinyl, CD and C90 cassette formats and the package is completed with new liner notes by Jon Savage. The author and journalist is renowned for documenting British music culture with books such as ‘England’s Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock’ and ‘The Hacienda Must Be Built’.
