Manic Street Preachers will headline the night of Saturday, 9th July at the 15th annual Eden Sessions held in the surroundings of the Eden Project in Cornwall.
Eden's marketing director Rita Broe said, "We have a fine tradition of rock bands playing the Eden Sessions and Manic Street Preachers are without doubt one of the finest British acts of the past 25 years. They have left an indelible mark on the British music scene and their longevity is testament to their enduring quality."
Manic Street Preachers are the fifth act to be announced for the 2016 Eden Sessions. The others are Lionel Richie (June 14 and 15 – both sold out), Tom Jones (June 26 – sold out), PJ Harvey (June 27) and Jess Glynne (July 14 – sold out).
Tickets for Manic Street Preachers will be priced at £40 plus booking fee and will go on general sale at 4pm on Monday 21st March on the link above.
Eden's Inside Track club passes cost £15 and give holders the option to buy two tickets for each Eden Session seven days before they go on general sale.
A Sessions ticket entitles the ticket holder to visit the Eden Project either on the day of the concert or the day after. All proceeds from the events will go to the Eden Trust. The full dates of Sessions have not yet been announced.
The Sessions are famed not only for bringing top acts to Cornwall but also for their festival feel, with extra bands and entertainers playing around the site in the run-up to the main event. The event will have three stages featuring some of the best up-and-coming acts playing from early afternoon on each day as well as the headliners.
There is no camping allowed on site, and animals are not permitted.
