Manic Street Preachers Homecoming


In a special gig for Radio 2 In Concert, the Manics return home to perform at the Blackwood Miners Institute in Wales, with new and classic tracks, plus footage of the band in their hometown with Jo Whiley.

Nicky Wire from Manic Street Preachers says:
"It has been nearly 25 years since we have played in our home town of Blackwood. We are thrilled and excited to be returning to a venue where we have spent many hours honing our snooker skills but this was before it became a live venue. It will be the smallest gig that we have played in a long time which will no doubt lead to chaos, severe nerves but hopefully a night of home town ecstasy.”
Watch highlights from the concert and exclusive moments from the Manics as they return home on the BBC Red Button from 10pm Friday 28th January.
