In the 90’s there was a little known movement called ‘Britpop’ and, during the heights of this era, there were four main power players; Oasis, Blur, Pulp and Suede. Somewhat unfortunately, the latter have been victims to time and, despite their talent and great body of work, are now the lesser known out of the four greats of Britpop. But now Suede have announced the tour celebrating, potentially their best album ‘Coming Up’, will have to be postponed and rescheduled.
The tour was due to take place later this year but, due to circumstances you are probably aware of, they have been moved back to April 2021. They are now starting on the 13th of April until the 27th of April. But not all this is bad news, new shows have been added along to the already booked dates meaning that if you missed out on tickets to the shows, you now have no excuse as you have another shot at buying them.
It’s probably no surprise but we’re going to have to put back the Coming Up anniversary shows until April 2021. After talking with the promoters and venues it’s become clear that there’s no way of putting on the shows we’d like to do while still guaranteeing /1 pic.twitter.com/FCMrHERoRG

Fans of Suede will be clued up about the band, but if you are not au fait with them I’ll get you up to speed now. ‘Coming Up’ was the band’s most commercially successful album and spawned the hit singles ‘Trash’, ‘Beautiful Ones’ and ‘Lazy’. It was nominated for The Mercury Music Award and it reaffirmed to the listening audiences in the 90’s that Suede were not just to be forgotten in the hazy 90’s music scene fog.
In recent years, Suede have been continuing releasing music. Most recently dropping ‘The Blue Hour’ which received lukewarm sales but was reviewed very well. Having no signs of age taking hold of them right now, the pushing back of their album will only go to feed the hunger of the masses of die hard fans that they have cultivated over the years. If you have not listened to Suede, I would highly recommend them as them, along with Blur, were credited with inventing the typical Britpop sound. I’m going to listen to ‘Coming Up’ now, I suggest you do the same.
