Following the release of new album Night Thoughts, the band has embarked on a world tour and are stopping by Hong Kong for a one night only performance. The show marks the sixth tour to Hong Kong of the much loved brit-pop group.

 

Formed in 1989, Suede erupted into the public-consciousness with their 1993 eponymous album which achieved worldwide success. Ten years, five albums and numerous awards and chart-topping songs later, the band split in 2003.

 

After a long hiatus, the well-loved band reunited in 2010 with the current line-up of Suede (Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling) and gave a series of critically-acclaimed live performance, followed by the release of album Bloodsports in 2013, also to considerable critical acclaim.

 

The band launched their long-awaited seventh studio album Night Thoughts this January alongside a feature film directed by photographer Roger Sargent. With Night Thoughts, Suede has reached new heights in their career. The album has reached number 6 in the UK chart and has become the band’s highest charting album since Head Music in 1999. The album is also very well-received among critics, with Rolling Stone calling it the band’s “most cohesive album to date, putting on a decisive modern twist on their definitive Brit-pop” and NME saying it “sounds bolder, braver and better than they have done in 20 years”.

 

The decadent, glamorous music that is signature of Suede is set to rock the stage in Hong Kong. Brought to Hong Kong by Midas Promotions, Suede Live in Hong Kong 2016 will be held on 16 August 2016 AsiaWorld-Expo. Tickets are on sale from 3 June 2016 at HK Ticketing’s Venue Box Offices, K11 Select and Tom Lee Music Stores.
