This year, Dour Festival has the immense honour of welcoming back Suede, legends who returned to the front of the stage a few months ago after an 8-year absence!
The group, formed in 1989, was one of the pioneers of the Brit-pop wave along with Pulp, Blur, and Oasis. Over the course of their 5 albums, their pop-rock, tinted with a touch of glam, became infectious the world over (they first came to Dour in 1995), and they count too many cult hits to their name to be able to put a number on.
However, in 2003 they separated, and it was until 2010 that we had to wait to witness a true return of the group on stage. Their first concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London was sold out in 20 minutes and the following European tour leaves no doubt as to the depth with which Suede has affected a collective spirit. A re-release of old albums, re-mastered and enriched with unedited tracks is set to come out in June 2011.
Following an incredible performance at Brussels' Cirque Royal last November, they are coming to present an exclusive and memorable evening at Dour Festival 2011!
