Songs Rarely / Never Played Live - Fantasy Setlist
July 2020

In response to R*E*P*E*A*T's popular tweet asking fans which rarely performed MSP tracks, as well as songs never before played live, they would most love to hear as part of a one-off setlist, I came up with the following (although as with The Great Lost Singles and Hidden Gems compilations, there are so many more tracks that I absolutely adore, but sadly, couldn't include due to space restrictions).


For one night only, the Manic Street Preachers will stage a very special concert.

Entitled 'Out Of The Shadows' - because the setlist shall be comprised solely of rarely performed tracks and songs never before played live (deep cuts, b-sides) - this epic, Bruce Springsteen-esque gig, will also mirror 2011's 'A Night Of National Treasures', as it'll feature another 38 tracks from the legendary and incomparable band's rich and diverse discography!

Taking into account previous Album Anniversary Tours however, songs from The Holy Bible, Everything Must Go and This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours LPs, were not shortlisted for this particular show. Meaning that as mentioned above, the vast majority of these tracks have only ever been played live a small amount of times, or, never at all.

This will be a glorious celebration of MSP's lesser known past! Date, venue and ticket details to be announced.
