- Suede »
Seminal Brett Anderson-led British band Suede are to reform, albeit for one night only, specifically for a show at London's Royal Albert Hall. This is very much good news, and undoubtedly music to many people's ears.
Sources suggest that the line-up which will feature for the night will be the Coming Up incarnation, which doesn't feature guitarist Bernard Butler, but will be Brett Anderson, Richard Oakes (who replaced Butler), Matt Osman, Simon Gilbert and Neil Codling.
The show will be in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, with the band long being supporters of various cancer charities, including donating their £20,000 Mercury Prize money in 1993 to Cancer Research.
The band split up after 14 years in 2003, after releasing five studio albums and countless memorable singles, including eight Top 10 UK hits in their time but, sadly and unbelievably, no number 1!
We'll let you know any more details when we have them. Promise.
