Forget the hurt, it’s been 35 years of pure joy for Lightning Seeds, one of the country’s best loved bands. And to celebrate, they have announced a massive 17 date UK tour and a lovingly put together 20 track greatest hits album ‘Tomorrow’s Here Today: 35 Years of Lightning Seeds’, out October 4th 2024.
Lightning Seeds 35th Anniversary tour kicks off November 8th ,2024 in Sheffield and finishes December 14th, 2024 in Wolverhampton. Tickets go on sale Friday November 24th at 10am HERE.
It’s an absolute masterclass in modern pop songwriting from Ian Broudie. Kicking off with their classic debut single ‘Pure’, this really is a greatest hits disc worthy of the title from a band who have sold over 8 million albums. Across 20 tracks the LP features Lightning Seeds favourites including ‘The Life Of Riley’, ‘Change’, ‘Lucky You’, ‘Sense’, ‘All I Want’, ‘Sugar Coated Iceberg’, ‘You Showed Me’, ‘Emily Smiles’, ‘3 Lions’ and more.
Ian Broudie said: “Wow, I can't believe it's been 35 years! Our first single ‘Pure’ really opened the door to a life's worth of songs, shows and recordings. I owe everything to ‘Pure’ and I'm really looking forward to celebrating the 35th anniversary of its release with ‘Tomorrow's Here Today: 35 Years of Lightning Seeds’ greatest hits album and tour in 2024.”
