News on Suede, Diane Schuur, Alejandro Escovedo
Suede, gearing up for the October U.K. release of the greatest-hits set "Singles" (Epic), is planning a series of shows in London at which it will perform its entire catalog.
The group will start a week-long residency Sept. 22 at the London Institute Of Contemporary Art, and will perform one of its albums in sequence each night: 1993's "Suede" on Sept. 22, 1994's "Dog Man Star" on Sept. 23, 1996's "Coming Up" on Sept. 25, 1999's "Head Music" on Sept. 26 and this year's "A New Morning" on Sept. 27.
Encores each night will include rarities and B-sides, chosen by fans. The Institute will also be hosting a exhibition of Suede artwork and memorabilia during the residency.
