The Charlatans are proud to announce their (Covid) delayed 30th Anniversary Best of Tour and that they will release a special album box set on limited edition blue vinyl on Then Recordings through Republic Of Music on the 15th of October 2021.

‘A Head Full Of Ideas’ features five albums and an exclusive seven - inch single and is a career-spanning collection that sums up their remarkable progress from 1990 Manchester scene hopefuls to one of the UK’s most enduring and best-loved bands. The accompanying tour will visit eighteen cities and will kick off at The Limelight in Belfast on the 22nd of November and finish up in Aberdeen on the 20th of December 2021.

In a remarkable and genre bursting career, The Charlatans have notched up thirteen Top 40 studio albums - three of them number ones - alongside twenty two hit singles, four of them Top 10. The rollercoaster highs have been accompanied by some shattering lows, any which one of them could have felled a less resilient band, from nervous breakdowns to near bankruptcy and the deaths of two founder members.

Somehow, they have not just carried on but adapted and transformed many times over the years. The classic Charlatans sound - driving Hammond organ, Northern Soul and house-influenced rhythms, swaggering guitars and Tim Burgess’s sunny yet somehow yearning vocal - is instantly recognisable. And in spite of everything they have been through their music is now more relevant than ever, The Guardian described their most recent album ‘Different Days’ as “one of their best ever”.
