Promoter Giles Cooper of GCE Live said: “It’s been an ambition of us all at Heritage Live to stage a show for the legendary Suede and to have Johnny Marr as their special guest, is a dream come true! Both are icons of the British music scene and to have the brilliant, Mercury-nominated, Nadine Shah to open, will mean this will undoubtedly be a night to remember for many years to come. We can’t wait!”

Artists previously announced for the Heritage Live concert series at Audley End so far are Madness with the Lightning Seeds on Fri 2nd August, Richard Ashcroft with Ocean Colour Scene on Saturday 3rd August and Elbow on Sunday 4th August.

The news comes after Suede confirmed their co-headline tour dates with Manic Street Preachers last year.

Asked how the joint tour came about, Anderson told Radio X's Dan O'Connell on The Evening Show: “It’s been brewing for about 30 years. We first toured together in 1994 in Europe and got to know each other, obviously, on that tour really well. Then we did a tour of the States last year and that seem to go quite well, so we thought we keep pushing our luck[…] and we haven’t got sick of each other yet”.

Not yet,” quipped James Dean Bradfield. “We know to give each other space in-between interviews. Today or tomorrow, we’ll go our separate ways and then reconvene on the microphone.”
