The Inspiral Carpets are back! Great news!

Hitting the road between March and April 2023, the thirteen-date run will feature shows all across the UK, including stops in Glasgow, Nottingham, London and a homecoming show at Manchester’s Albert Hall (1st April).

Intended to be “a celebration of the music we created, which has brought so much joy to people over the last 34 years”, the shows will also be the band’s first since the tragic passing of the band’s drummer Craig Gill in 2016.

Speaking about their decision to tour again and what they hope to bring to fans at these 2023 shows, Inspirals frontman Stephen Holt says:

“With all the bad news in the country and the world at the moment I feel everyone could do with some good news and a good time, and we’re here to deliver. After coming through a really difficult time as a band we now feel ready to return and give the best fans in the world what they have been calling for. We couldn’t stay away forever. The band means too much to so many people just to leave things how they sadly ended in 2016.”
