Sleeper Reunite for First Live Shows in 19 Years
Published Feb 15, 2017Following somewhat recent reunions from the likes of Pulp, Blur and Elastica (not to mention a Trainspotting sequel and accompanying soundtrack), the '90s Britpop revival continues to charge full steam ahead and Sleeper are the latest band to get on board.
The Louise Wener-fronted outfit have just revealed plans to return to the live stage for the first time in 19 years. They've reformed to join the "Star Shaped Festival Tour" in the UK, alongside the Bluetones, Space, Dodgy, My Life Story and Salad.
An announcement from the festival notes that the reunion shows are "completely exclusive" to Star Shaped, so there's no guarantee that Sleeper have any reunion plans beyond the upcoming four-date trek through Birmingham, London, Glasgow and Manchester this summer.

Sleeper originally disbanded in 1998, releasing their last album Pleased to Meet You in 1997.
