Humphreys Concerts by the bay says
One of Creation Records’ first global success stories, RIDE, are getting back together for live dates to the delight of their loyal fans. They are the band who slammed the door firmly shut on the (by then) flailing 80s pop movement and paved the way for bands like Primal Scream and Oasis to shine in the Britpop era. The Oxford four piece: Andy Bell, Mark Gardener, Laurence ‘Loz’ Colbert and Steve Queralt last took to the stage in the UK as special guests to Oasis at the Brighton Centre in December 1994, with Benacassim Festival in 1995 marking their last live performance – until now. It has taken twenty years for an official reunion to materialize, and fans have been pining for Ride to get back together ever since. The band’s name started to get thrown around during a brief nu-gaze movement around 2006 with bands like Animal Collective, Deerhunter and Panda Bear all citing Ride as heavy influences. Even Radiohead tried to persuade them to reform by requesting them as support for their South Park Oxford show in 2001, but to no avail. The planets have now aligned and Ride will finally hit the road again. With special guest tba. (General admission, standing only.)
