2022 marks Tindersticks’ 30th career anniversary. To celebrate such a special occasion, the band led by Stuart Staples has announced a special tour that will pass through countries that have a special meaning in the band’s journey. Portugal will be one of the countries included in this tour, with concerts on 13 May, at Coliseu de Lisboa, and the following day, 14 May, at Coliseu do Porto. Both nights will be co-produced by Locomotiva Azul and Produtores Associados

The concerts will cover the extensive discography of the band, from Tindersticks, debut album released in 1993, to the most recent and mesmerizing Distractions, released in February this year. The band will be accompanied by an orchestra and by several guests who have marked the band’s path.

Tindersticks were born in 1992 and throughout their career they have established themselves as masters of restraint and poetic human emotion, drawing out dense, melancholic songs whose textures and beauty have found a special place in the hearts of the Portuguese public, where they have always been cherished. The choice of Porto and Lisbon to be part of this commemorative tour thus highlights the importance that Portugal for the Nottingham group.

 

We are happy and relieved to be able to announce our anniversary tour for springtime 2022. We have been and are greatly missing being able to play our music together and for you. But what better time to return than to celebrate 30(!) years of somehow being able to stay dedicated to doing our own thing. And we are well aware and grateful that this has been made possible by the support of our audience. Even though we are not ones to look backwards this seems a time to savour and enjoy for many reasons. We are planning 2 sets each evening, the rst as a 5 piece and the second with many of the musicians who have been part of our rich musical family over the years, with most evenings augmented by a local string orchestra. With the help of our promoters the venues have been very carefully chosen: Some favourites and some we have been trying to play for a long time. We are very much hoping to see you all there! To coincide we are working with City Slang to create a career spanning release and other ways to mark this special time. More soon on all this. Roll on 2022!
