Following a sold out book tour last year, The Coral have announced further 12 dates for March and April 2024. The tour sees an intimate evening of music and conversation with singer James Skelly and keyboardist Nick Power including a short acoustic performance of songs from the album.
The Coral’s signed book shares the story of their journey as childhood friends right through to the making of their remarkable debut album. The book, which is limited to 1,500 signed and numbered copies, is available here and sees their story told in their own words for the very first time. The stunningly boxed book features exclusive commentary from the band as well as previously-unseen photography as it reflects on one of the greatest records of the new Millennium. It will also be accompanied by an exclusive CD featuring a live recording of the band performing their debut album in full at Liverpool Invisible Wind Factory last year.
Tickets for The Coral: an Intimate Evening of music and conversation with singer James Skelly and keyboardist Nick Power, will go on sale on Friday 24th at 10am HERE.

“Tunes so joyous you thought they only existed on dusty 45s in ancient pub jukeboxes.” NME on ‘The Coral’
The Coral eponymous debut album remains a totemic release and was described by NME as being the funniest and most refreshing British debut in years. Nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a Brit Award the album is still sonically unique, wilfully leftfield and thrillingly eclectic. The Coral combined psychedelia with dub, disco groove with pop and ragtime with Egyptian reggae on a remarkable debut that has proved to be timeless. Twenty years on, that records sounds as fresh and remarkable as it did when it was released on 29th July 2002.
