Led by frontman Jarvis Cocker, the Sheffield group formed in 1978 but didn’t achieve commercial success until the 1990s. Their breakthrough came with 1994’s His ‘n’ Hers, but it was the following year’s Different Class that saw them became one of the Birpop era’s defining bands.
The likes of Common People and Disco 2000 became anthems, with Cocker becoming an iconic figure who made the pages of tabloids as frequently as those of the NME.

In a statement confirming the tour, Cocker said: “Three months ago, we asked ‘what exactly do you do for an encore? Well…an encore happens when the crowd makes enough noise to bring the band back to the stage. So…we are playing in the UK & Ireland in 2023.
“Therefore…come along and make some noise”.
