Halfway though this, the final Manic Street Preachers gig of this most triumphant year for the band, I had what you might call A Moment.
A scorchingly brilliant Manics gig heralding the dawn of a new era.
My autumn of Manics gigs came to a close with this duo of Q&A plus acoustic set shows from the boys.
Following the Manics’ triumphant Cardiff shows for the NHS in September, I was itching to see the band again on their main tour for The Ultra Vivid Lament.
All the gigs of my life: Gig 143 – Manic Street Preachers, Thursday, June 22, 2017, Bristol Harbourside (Bristol Sounds)
A breezy harbourside Manics experience.
Manic Street Preachers at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff, Sunday 19th and Monday 20th of September 2021
The Manics in Cardiff, playing two gigs for the NHS, at the top of their game. It doesn’t get much better than that.
I went in thinking this might be my last ever Manics gig. I was very, very wrong.
The rejuvenation of my Manics fandom continued in 2014 – and then hit a slight hurdle.
All the gigs of my life: Gig 121 – Manic Street Preachers, Saturday, April 12, 2014, Brixton Academy
The place where my all-consuming love for the Manics began creeping back.
Is that the bounciest, jauntiest flute solo you’ve ever heard in a Manics song? I think it is!
