Suede to perform in Thetford Forest this summer

Have your say

Britpop pioneers Suede are the latest band to announce they will be performing in Thetford Forest this summer as part of the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live concert series.

Suede bounded onto the British music scene with the eponymous No 1 debut album released in 1993 that sold over 100,000 in its first week of release, kick-starting the Britpop revolution and going on to become a Mercury Music Prize winner.

After taking a break in 2003, in 2010 the band - known for No 1 albums Coming Up and Head Music and top 10 hits like Dog Man Star, Sci-Fi Lullabies and Animal Nitrate - re-formed for some well-received live shows and got down to recording their sixth studio album, Bloodsports.

Released last year to overwhelmingly positive reviews, the album marked one of the great rock comebacks and was regarded as one of the best albums of the year.

Suede will perform in Thetford Forest on Friday June 13, joining the likes of classical superstar Katherine Jenkins and Irish boy band Boyzone who are lined up to perform in the magnificent woodland setting in July.

Tickets, priced at £42.35, will go on sale at 9am on February 7.
