NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ –

Praise for The Holy Bible UK Tour:
“The Manics go back 20 years to revive the deathly beauty of The Holy Bible and the memory of their lost fourth member…..” ***** The Guardian

“A life-affirming, spellbinding show” ***** The Times

“Vital and Unpredictable” NME 9/10

Praise for The Holy Bible 20 re-issue:
“Their bleakest and their best” ***** Q

“Pure and unflinching” **** Mojo

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, is proud to announce that Manic Street Preachers (the influential post-punk industrial modern rock band formed in Blackwood Wales in 1986) will celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Holy Bible (MSP’s third studio album) with “The Holy Bible Tour,” the group’s first North American concert dates in six years, and the release of The Holy Bible 20, a newly expanded edition of the widely acclaimed masterpiece.

Originally released on Epic Records in 1994, The Holy Bible has proved pivotal in the evolution of Manic Street Preachers and the alternative rock music landscape bridging the 20th and 21st centuries.   A 1995 US tour, planned in support of The Holy Bible, was cancelled when Richey Edwards, MSP’s principle lyricist and rhythm guitarist, disappeared, under mysterious and still unknown circumstances, on February 1, 1995.  Edwards’ last live show with the Manics was on December 21, 1994 and The Holy Bible contains his last recordings with the band.

Following Edwards’ disappearance, the Manic Street Preachers continued to record, tour and develop in his absence, creating a discography of powerful and influential albums and singles and becoming one of the UK’s biggest bands in the process.  In 2014, MSP released the critically acclaimed UK #2 studio album Futurology and The Holy Bible 20, the definitive collector’s edition of the group’s 1994 watershed.

In late 2014, to coincide with the 20th anniversary of The Holy Bible, the Manic Street Preachers mounted a UK tour of concerts – which sold out in 9 minutes – featuring the album performed live, in sequence and entirety, for the first time ever.  Overwhelming demand prompted a second run of The Holy Bible live shows for 2015 in Edinburgh, Wolverhampton, Southampton and Cardiff Castle.

In addition to performing The Holy Bible on the North American tour the band will also play classic tracks and rarities from their extensive back catalogue.

A deluxe edition of The Holy Bible (20th Anniversary Edition) was released in the UK on December 9, 2014.  An ultra deluxe physical edition of the album, featuring a 12″ vinyl LP and 4CDs, is slated for release on March 10, 2015.  A limited edition 12″ vinyl LP picture disc is being struck for release on Record Store Day 2015 (April 18).

RUSH ANNOUNCES R40 LIVE TOUR – 40TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR (PRNewsFoto/Live Nation Entertainment)

- Rush to Visit 34 Cities Throughout North America in 2015 -

- Tickets On Sale in Select Markets Beginning Jan. 30 at LiveNation.com -

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Celebrating 40 years, Rush and Live Nation confirmed today that the RUSH: R40 LIVE TOUR will visit 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, Okla. and finishing Aug. 1 in Los Angeles, Calif. These not-to-be-missed concerts will highlight four decades of the band’s music. Tickets for the RUSH: R40 LIVE TOUR will go on sale starting Jan. 30 in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com (complete itinerary follows).

Over the course of their amazing career, Rush has lived a lifetime together, providing an influential soundtrack to many of their fans’ lives. Some have been with them since the start, while others have discovered them along the way and delved into their incredible body of work. To quote Dave Grohl from their momentous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, “Rush built their following the right way. No hype, no bullshit, they did it from the ground up. Their legacy is incredible and their influence undeniable.”

After 40 years together and 20 gold and platinum studio albums, Rush is ready to celebrate with the most loyal fans in the world by embarking on their 21st tour, one that will most likely be their last major tour of this magnitude. Celebrate four decades of music with three incredible musicians—all in one night.

RUSH - Moving Pictures

RUSH – Moving Pictures

Rush’s vast catalogue includes such classics as 1974’s self-titled debut, 1976’s 2112, 1981’s Moving Pictures, 1996’s Test For Echo and 2002’s Vapor Trails. Rush released their 20th studio album Clockwork Angels in 2012, via Anthem/Roadrunner Records. The critically acclaimed collection marked their first studio recording since 2007’s Snakes & Arrows, and debuted at #1 in Canada and #2 on the Billboard 200, matching the highest chart debut of the band’s career. Known for their energetic live shows, the most recent Rush release was the R40 collector’s boxset, including live footage spanning all four decades of the trio’s career, with over two hours of unreleased material and a rare performance of the seven-part version of “2112,” packaged in an impressive 52-page hardcover book.

Their longevity has served a pop culture renaissance, with the band’s rare television appearance—their first in over 30 years—on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, tributes on South Park and a memorable cameo in the film I Love You, Man.

RUSH - Test For Echo

RUSH – Test For Echo

A live review from their most recent Clockwork Angels tour boasted: “the power-trio interplay could put guys half their age in the burn ward.” The Globe & Mail declared Rush as “one of the few bands anywhere that just keeps getting better.” A career-chronicling Rolling Stone feature summed up the renowned rock trio’s continuing artistic vitality by observing, “It’s true that Rush doesn’t mean today what it did in ’76 or even ’96. It may mean more.”

Rush has been recognized with eight Juno Awards and seven Grammy nominations, including one for the acclaimed documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage that also won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. The band members were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994, made Officers of the Order of Canada in 1996 and inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010. They have received a star on both Canada’s Walk of Fame (1999) and the Hollywood Walk of Fame (2010). In 2012, Rush were bestowed with the highest artistic honor in Canada when receiving the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award. To the elation of their fans, Rush were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.

Legendary rock band Rush have unveiled details of its highly anticipated 2012 album, Clockwork Angels. The recording of Clockwork Angels began with Grammy Award winner Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones) who collaborated with the band on their 2007 studio album, Snakes and Arrows - and Rush co-producing. Lyrically, Clockwork Angels chronicles a young man's quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The story features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush - Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart - is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most popular.
