The Charlatans & Ride Reveal 2023 Dates
The Charlatans UK and Ride have announced plans for a North American co-headline tour, set to begin January 30, 2023 at New York City’s Webster Hall and then continue through a February 18 finale at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA.
In 1993, The Charlatans UK and Ride co-headlined Daytripper. two concert events held in the British seaside towns of Brighton and Blackpool. The upcoming North American tour will once again see the two bands trading off the headline slot each night, with both performing classic albums in full – The Charlatans UK performing 1992’s LP, Between 10th and 11th, Ride performing their debut Nowhere, along with a selection of greatest hits, fan favorites, and more.
The Charlatans – from their beginnings as 1990 Manchester scene have 13 studio albums in the UK, alongside 22. The rollercoaster highs have been accompanied by some shattering lows, any which one of them could have felled a less resilient band, from nervous breakdowns to near bankruptcy and the deaths of two founder members. Somehow, the band have not just carried on but adapted and transformed. The classic Charlatans sound – driving Hammond organ, Northern Soul and house-influenced rhythms, swaggering guitars and Tim Burgess’s sunny yet somehow yearning vocal – is instantly recognizable.
Ride’s first four EPs affirmed them as an alternative sensation, with 1990’s full-length debut, Nowhere. 1992’s Going Blank Again hit the top 5 on the UK charts. Two further albums followed before Ride decided to call it a day, their standing as leftfield sonic giants undiminished. Ride reformed in 2014, with a series of festival sets (including Coachella and Primavera) and then followed by a full-scale reunion tour. 2017 saw the release of Weather Diaries, the band’s first new album in over 20 years. Ride’s sixth studio album, This Is Not A Safe Place, made a top 10 debut upon its August 2019 releases. A 2020 world tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of Nowhere was rescheduled to 2022, accompanied by the deluxe reissue of their early classic albums – including 4 EPs, Nowhere, and Going Blank Again.
