Charlatans and Ride Unite: The glory days of Britpop come crashing back thanks to the Madchester sounds of the Charlatans (UK, or whatever) and the glorious Oxford drone of Ride. That’s the best double bill since the Manic Street Preachers went out on tour with Suede.
A press release reads: “Two of the UK’s most enduring and best-loved bands, The Charlatans UK and Ride have announced plans for a North American co-headline tour, set to begin January 30, 2023 at New York City’s Webster Hall and then continue through a February 18 finale at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets for all announced dates go on sale Friday, December 2 at 10 am (local). For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.thecharlatans.net/gigs and www.thebandride.com.”
“In 1993, The Charlatans UK and Ride co-headlined Daytripper – two now-legendary concert events held in the British seaside towns of Brighton and Blackpool. The upcoming North American tour will once again see the two bands trading off the headline slot each night, with both performing classic albums in full – The Charlatans UK performing 1992’s landmark sophomore LP, Between 10th and 11th, Rideperforming 1990’s debut masterpiece, Nowhere – along with a selection of greatest hits, fan favorites, and more.”
Charlatans and Ride Unite: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 18 at the Wiltern.
