Subscribe to Suede alerts

Suede treated fans to an airing of their new album 'Bloodsports' at an intimate gig on Thursday (28.03.13) night.

The 'Trash' rockers took to the stage at a packed-out Rock City in Nottingham - their first show in the city since 1992 - for a 70-minute set largely compiling songs from their comeback album, interspersed with classic hits.

Opening with the first three tracks from the album, 'Barriers', 'Snowblind' and latest single 'It Starts and Ends With You', the crowd were in a frenzied excitement even before the familiar sounds of 'Animal Nitrate' and 'Metal Mickey' kicked in, with frontman Brett Anderson regularly disappearing out of sight as he was swamped by adoring fans.

One such moment, during B-side and fan favourite 'Killing Of A Flashboy' saw him resurface with his trademark black shirt torn down to the navel, prompting him to quip: ''Yeah, thanks for that''.

The set ended with 1996 singles 'Trash' and 'Beautiful Ones', with every word sung along by the audience.

The group then returned for a three-track encore of 'What Are You Not Telling Me', 'For The Strangers', and 'New Generation'.

The show was a warm-up for the group's gig at London's Alexandra Palace tonight (30.03.13).
