Following on from the band’s sold-out hometown show at the Halifax Piece Hall last month and their sold out London Alexandra Palace gigs, Embrace will be bringing their special Songs from The Good Will Out and Out Of Nothing show to  Leeds next year.

The band will be celebrating their two most successful albums to date playing songs exclusively from the albums at a very special show on Saturday March 14 at the first direct arena.

Embrace will be joined at the shows by special guests Starsailor and CUD.

Danny McNamara said: “Our Halifax gig was really special, such a magical day, but this show has the potential to be even more special.

“It’s a chance to play some live favourites that we haven’t played for a long time, alongside all our biggest hits.”

Embrace’s 1998 debut album The Good Will Out became one of the fastest selling debut albums by any British artist at the time, certified Gold on the day of release and going on to sell more than half a million copies in the UK alone.

The album spawned three Top 10 singles including, All You Good Good People, Come Back To What You Know and My Weakness Is None Of Your Business, together with two other Top 40 hits, One Big Family and Fireworks. The NME at the time declared the album “One of the great debut albums of the past decade”.

Their fourth studio album in 2004 Out Of Nothing followed a three-year hiatus for the group and features two of Embrace’s biggest hit singles, in the shape of Ashes and the Coldplay-penned Gravity.

The album went on to sell more tha 600,000 copies achieving double Platinum status in the UK, with the NME famously describing Out Of Nothing as “The best comeback since Lazarus.

Tickets for the Leeds first direct arena show go on sale on Friday August 2 at 9am.
