Rag’n’Bone Man and All Saints join Manic Street Preachers and The Specials at Splendour

March 1st, 2019 at 6:59 am

Rag’n’Bone Man and All Saints will join headliners Manic Street Preachers and The Specials at Splendour on Saturday 20 July.

Hot on the heels of his ‘Giant’ performance at the 2019 Brit Awards, Rag’n’Bone Man will perform on the Main Stage at the Wollaton Park music festival. All Saints, one of the biggest girl bands that the UK has ever produced, will headline the Confetti Stage.

Rag’n’Bone Man – real name Rory Graham – broke onto the music scene with his massive debut single “Human” in 2016, which became a major hit across Europe. His UK number one debut album, of the same name, also features the single “Skin” and became the decade’s fastest-selling debut album so far by a British male, outselling those of Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran.

The baritone singer-songwriter is a triple Brit Award winner and is currently enjoying UK Chart success with the dance-electronic hit “Giant” – an incredible collaboration with ‘Best British Producer’ Calvin Harris. This will be his first performance in Nottingham since his show at Rock City in April 2017, which sold out in less than two days.

All Saints are beloved by a whole generation of fans who grew up with them in the nineties. After a 15-year hiatus, the band reformed in 2016 with the original lineup – Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis, Natalie Appleton and Nicole Appleton – released fresh material, including UK Top 10 Album ‘Red Flag’, and played a show at Rock City during their UK tour in December.

Back in the nineties, the quartet’s debut album, ‘All Saints’ (1997), went 5x platinum and produced three UK number one singles, including the double Brit award-winning “Never Ever”, “Under the Bridge/Lady Marmalade” and “Bootie Call”. Their second album, ‘Saints & Sinners’ (2000), became the band’s first number one album and achieved multi-platinum success, featuring UK number one hits “Pure Shores”, the soundtrack for the film The Beach, and “Black Coffee”.

Manic Street Preachers and The Specials To Headline Splendour Festival 2019

January 25th, 2019 at 7:00 am

Manic Street Preachers and The Specials will headline this year’s Splendour, Saturday 20 July 2019.

The two bands have an outstanding back catalogue with more than 20 combined UK top 10 hits, including If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next and The Masses Against The Classes from Manic Street Preachers and Too Much Too Young and the legendary Ghost Town from The Specials.

Manic Street Preachers were in high demand after we conducted our annual questionnaire, bagging the top spot of who you’d like to see at the festival. The band consists of cousins James Dean Bradfield on lead vocals and lead guitar, Sean Moore on drums and Nicky Wire on bass.

Throughout the band’s illustrious career they headlined several festivals including Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury, T in the Park, and V Festival and gained a host of music accolades including 11 NME Awards, eight Q Awards and four BRIT Awards. As well as their Triple Platinum album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, the band have had 13 UK top 10 albums, including Everything Must Go and their latest album Resistance Is Futile. This will be the band’s first Nottingham appearance since their 2007 Rock City show.

The Specials are one of the most electrifying, influential and important bands of all time and return to Splendour hot on the heels of a special 40th anniversary tour celebrating their formation and the two-tone label. Formed in Coventry in 1977, the trend-starting ska revival band hit the British music scene hard. In the UK their debut single Gangsters shot to number six and every subsequent single was a top 10 hit, including two number one hits – Too Much Too Young and the much loved Ghost Town, which won ‘Single of the Year 1981’ in NME, Melody Maker and Sounds.

Encore is the band’s first new studio album in more than 38 years, produced by founding members Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter. The highly anticipated new album will be released on 1st February 2019 and is already drawing widespread critical acclaim.

Manic Street Preachers and The Specials are the first of over 40 acts announced to perform at the Nottinghamshire’s biggest outdoor music event at Wollaton Park, with many more artists, comedians and entertainers to be revealed in the coming months.
