This event has been and gone.
Following on from the band’s sold-out hometown show at the 6,000 capacity Halifax Piece Hall and their sold out London Alexandra Palace gigs in December, Embrace will be bringing their special 'Songs from The Good Will Out and Out Of Nothing' show to Manchester and Leeds in 2020.
The band will be celebrating their two most successful albums to date playing songs exclusively from the albums at two very special shows on 6th March at O2 Victoria Warehouse Manchester and 14th March at Leeds First Direct Arena. Embrace will be joined at the shows by special guests Starsailor and CUD. Danny McNamara says;
“Our Halifax gig was really special, such a magical day, but this show has the potential to be even more special. It’s a chance to play some live favourites that we haven’t played for a long time, alongside all our biggest hits.”
1998’s debut album The Good Will Out became one of the fastest selling debut albums by any British artist at the time, certified Gold on the day of release and going on to sell over half a million copies in the UK alone. The album spawned three Top 10 singles including, All You Good Good People, Come Back To What You Know and My Weakness Is None Of Your Business, together with two other Top 40 hits, One Big Family and Fireworks. The NME at the time declared the album, “One of the great debut albums of the past decade”.
Brothers Danny and Richard McNamara, the forces behind West Yorkshire's Embrace, once achieved Indie anthems of epic Coldplay proportions (who actually supported Embrace early in their career!). From stadium classics like the top ten hits 'All You Good Good People' and 'Come Back To What You Know' to their three number one albums, sold out arena shows and well over a million album sales behind them, Embrace were on the crest of a wave when they suddenly vanished without a trace. They returned some eight years later with the eponymous 'Embrace', offering a rawer, darker sound, whilst still maintaining their signature big anthems and huge choruses and came back in 2018 with their album; 'Love Is A Basic Need'.
