Manic Street Preachers
Manic Street Preachers have announced plans for a full European tour focussing on their recent compilation, National Treasures.

Released in 2011, National Treasures is an overview of the Welsh band’s 20-year career. They played one gig at London’s O2 Arena to launch the album, but are now taking the tour across Europe. Unlike the one-off O2 show, in which they played every song from the compilation album, this tour will feature a “selection” of their best.

Barcelona is a fitting end to the tour. The Spanish city’s “las Ramblas” district was named in the Manics’ only U.K. Number 1 hit single, “If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next.”
