Earth vs The Wildhearts – 20th Anniversary Shows

By Kris | January 1, 2013

After a 3 year hiatus, The Wildhearts (Ginger, CJ, Jon Poole & Ritch Battersby) made their explosive live return in front of a sold-out crowd at The Forum in London, on December 17th 2012.

In April 2013, The Wildhearts will once again take to the stage, when they perform their classic debut album “Earth vs” at four special shows. The album was voted the number 1 album of the year by Kerrang! Magazine in 1993.

The show will be broken into two halves – the first will see “Earth vs” performed in full, and the second half will allow the audience each night to help choose the songs they want to hear.

The dates are:
April 4th – Glasgow, ABC
April 5th – Manchester, Academy
April 6th – Nottingham, Rockcity
April 7th – Wolverhampton, Wulfrun Hall

Tickets are on sale at 9am on the 7th January 2013 from all major ticket outlets.

    There have been a few questions in various places about the possibility of more shows in other cities etc. Here’s an update from Gav, posted on the All Things Wildhearts facebook group:

    A few quick answers..

    London – not happening at this point. We were there 2 weeks ago for a sold out show and felt it would be too soon to return. However, Ginger will be supporting the Darkness at Hammersmith in March (That show is going to rule). You do also get the Birthday show every year and pretty much every one off Ginger does! You are our spoilt child London and you need to let the other towns have a go.

    You’re not playing “insert town” – currently the band have signed on to do 4 shows, so not surprisingly we are not doing most towns in the UK.

    Will you add more shows? – No plans at this moment. If it does well, there is a slim possibility of a second leg later in the year, but this is just vague talk right now. Ultimately demand will dictate, and we’ll find out what the demand is like next week.

    Just to reiterate – we have no other shows penciled or confirmed with venues. Currently the only venues confirmed and locked in that will definitely happen, are the 4 that are announced.

    If you add or do more shows in the year, would you consider coming as far north as Aberdeen or Inverness. not sure of the venues in aberdeen, but the Ironworks in Inverness is a Fantastic venue, and would be a cracking show.

    thats all.. take care and love the new projects.
