Published Jan 15, 2010It's been a while since we heard anything from '90s Britpoppers Suede, but then again, it's the age of the reunion, isn't it?
So it makes since that the long-dormant band will reunite, though for one night only, as they are so far only set to play London's Royal Albert Hall.
According to NME, the show will serve as a charity benefit in the the Teenage Cancer Trust series of shows happening at the venue. Although the date has yet to be confirmed, the one-off concert featuring the line-up of Brett Anderson, Matt Osman, Simon Gilbert, Neil Codling and Richard Oakes (who replaced Bernard Butler in 1994) is already causing a massive Internet stir.
Although Suede broke up in 2003, front-man Brett Anderson has claimed "there's no bad blood" between the members. Former guitarist Bernard Butler, who will not play the gig, scoffed at the idea of Britpop reunions last year, saying, "I find it embarrassing, personally. I think it's got no relevance to what's going on at the moment... I'm obsessively opposed to nostalgia."
