THE LEMONHEADS have announced a run of special anniversary shows this Autumn, with dates in Bristol, London and Manchester.
Celebrating 30 years of their fifth studio album ‘It’s a Shame About Ray’, the American rockers will be playing the album in full for UK audiences.
Landing at Bristol‘s O2 Academy on 28 September, London’s Roundhouse on 30 September before taking the show to Manchester’s O2 Ritz on 8 October, the dates will be a unique chance to hear the album live in its entirety.
Released in 1992 and produced by the Robb Brothers, the album was an international hit gaining a #31 positioning in the UK Top 100.
With its title taken from a quote frontman Evan Dando had seen in a Sydney newspaper about a boy named Ray being repeatedly kicked out of school, the record gained rave reviews at the time of its release.
Awarded five out of five stars by Mojo, 8/10 by NME, 8.4/10 by Pitchfork and being honoured in Rolling Stone’s prestigious Album Guide, the album was a defining force of the early ‘90s.
Landing after the downfall of grunge — with which it shares a certain slacker attitude but with less distortion and angst — but before the arrival of Britpop, the album has stood defiant against the test of time.
With tickets available now, full dates and details are below.
