Manic Street Preachers play stripped-down set in Glasgow
Bass guitar player Nicky Wire jokingly apologised to fans in Glasgow last night (February 18th 2010) as Manic Street Preachers played a stripped-down set at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut.
No backing musicians were at the gig with the band meaning that only the three key members of the band, bass guitar player Wire, singer James Dean Bradfield and drummer Sean Moore, were onstage in the small venue.
As the band prepared to play This is Yesterday, Wire told the audience: "As you can see it's just the three of us tonight, so when you hear the songs that are supposed to have strings and keyboards on them, you'll just have to imagine them."
The band played plenty of songs from their back catalogue across the course of the evening, including Motorcycle Emptiness, Masses Against the Classes and A Design for Life, reports NME.Posted on 19 Feb 2010 15:00 to category : Instruments News
