The Charlatans have announced new dates for their delayed 30th Anniversary Best of Tour - and it's coming to Birmingham.
Celebrating their 30th anniversary with a vinyl LP Box Set, A Head Full Of Ideas is a five album, and exclusive 7”, career-spanning box set, that sums up their remarkable progress from 1990 Manchester scene hopefuls to one of the UK’s most enduring and best-loved bands.
The Charlatans have notched up 13 Top 40 studio albums - three of them number ones - alongside 22 hit singles, four of them Top 10. The classic Charlatans sound - driving Hammond organ, Northern Soul and house-influenced rhythms, swaggering guitars and Tim Burgess’s sunny yet somehow yearning vocal - is instantly recognisable. And in spite of everything they have been through, their music is now more relevant than ever.
This limited box set, is a diverse collection portrayed over five blue vinyl LP’s, spanning their hits, classic live performances, unheard demo’s and rarities and remixes from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Norman Cook and Sleaford Mods. The package will will also include an exclusive seven inch single featuring demo versions of ‘Indian Rope’/ ’The Only One I Know’, a signed print of a tour poster from the early 1990’s together with a booklet featuring unseen photographs and sleeve notes by friend and journalist Dave Simpson.
Their iconic and hugely adored live track ‘One To Another’ (circa 1997) provides the titles for the individual vinyl collection within the box set. Each piece of vinyl is named after a lyric from the song.
The Charlatans play O2 Academy, Birmingham on 27 November 2021. Tickets go on sale at 10am on 30 April here.
