Primal Scream announce massive UK tour

Primal Scream announce five-date Scottish tour

Glasgow music legends icons support new release 'Maximum Rock 'n' Roll' with autumn shows

Primal Scream have announced they will head out on a 22-date tour of the UK November and December. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 9am on Fri 7 Jun.

The news follows the announcement of their new release Maximum Rock 'n' Roll: The Singles which came out in May. The 31-track album celebrates the band's greatest singles from the past three and a half decades such as 'Velocity Girl', 'Loaded', 'Ivy Ivy Ivy', 'Movin' On Up' and many more.

Speaking of the latest release frontman Bobby Gillespie said: 'Right from our 1985 debut All Fall Down onward we've approached singles as an aesthetic choice, a statement of where we are as a band. We grew up with Suffragette City and Metal Guru flying out of the radio[…]Prince and Madonna made amazing hits. That has been our approach. Great singles can get out into the world and show people an alternative way of thinking. They make you feel less alone.'

The tour kicks off on Tue 19 Nov at O2 Academy Oxford before gigs up and down the country. The band finish off with a short tour of Scotland that kicks off in Inverness on Fri 13 Dec before nights in Aberdeen and Perth. The band wrap things up with a hometown gig on Tue 17 Dec at the Barrowlands, Glasgow.
