Ride Reunited For a Pre-Tour Acoustic Show in London
Andy Bell and Mark Gardener broke out the hits for the first time in decades
Ride, the last of the holy trinity of shoegaze greats, are finally set to launch a reunion tour in April. But before they do that, they obviously need to shake the dust off a bit, and that was done in part Thursday night in London, where principal members Andy Bell and Mark Gardener played an acoustic show at the 100 Club. Deprived the the usual swoon and swell, Bell and Gardener still ran through all the hits that people have been waiting to hear since the band’s 1996 breakup, including “Vapour Trail” and “Dreams Burn Down” among a whole host of others. The full slate of videos is below via BrooklynVegan, aside from “Dreams Burn Down,” which is up above. Stream away and count down the days to Coachella, if you were lucky enough to snag a ticket.
