Suede Announce March 2023 UK Headline Tour Dates

Suede have announced headline UK tour dates for March 2023, performing classics, hits and tracks from their forthcoming album, Autofiction, due for release September 16. The tour begins at Bath’s Forum on March 3 and closes at O2 Academy Brixton on March 25, 30 years after Suede made their iconic debut performance at the London venue in May 1993.

The news follows a pair of secret shows Suede performed under the guise of Crushed Kid - an idea that saw Suede taking the ‘back to basics’ nature of Autofiction to the extreme by playing live under a fake name. After sparking rumours following a week of mysterious online activity, including releasing new music under the moniker, Crushed Kid made their debut performance at London's 300 capacity MOTH Club, followed by a set at Manchester’s Deaf Institute. Fans were treated to a high-energy surprise preview of Suede's ninth studio album in its entirety. No encore, no greatest hits. The set saw The Telegraph champion Suede "a band reborn” whilst the Evening Standard confirmed, "like all the best new bands, Crushed Kid left us wanting more", The Guardian praised “a euphoric return”, and CLASH heralded the set an “unrelenting display of where Suede stand in 2022”.

Ahead of their March 2023 headline tour, Suede will perform Autofiction at a series of very special shows through September and October 2022. A rare chance to see the band live in some of the UK and Europe’s most intimate venues - including two nights at London’s Electric Ballroom which sold out in twenty seconds. Suede will also perform at a series of in-store concerts and signing appearances at UK record shops in September.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am here
