The Welsh rock titans play their seminal album 'The Holy Bible' in full.

After touring two albums in as many years (2013's nostalgic 'Rewind the Film' and this year's energetic 'Futurology'), it's probably about time the Manics had a break. Instead the Welsh titans – always a fiery live act – are embarking on another big tour, this time performing their awe-inspiring, bleakly brilliant 1994 album 'The Holy Bible' all the way through as a twentieth anniversary salute. Fractured riffing, teeth-gnashing vocals and unsettling, hyper-politicised lyricism: if you only know the Manics as the dad-rockers behind 'A Design for Life', you're in for a bit of a surprise.
