Event InformationThe Wedding Present will be playing a series of concert dates in 2017 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of their classic debut album, George Best.
With its bittersweet, breathtakingly honest love songs immersed in whirlwind guitars, George Best struck a chord with outsiders across the indie universe. Suddenly here was David Gedge; a geeky pied piper for our youthful missteps. 30 years on… we have laughed, loved and lived along with The Wedding Present but are we any different to the way we were during those first meanderings into love? No, Gedge’s words are still golden… and we will always remember our favourite dress.
The NME described George Best as “an unmitigated delight” upon its release and included it in its 2014 list of “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” Allmusic says “It would be nearly impossible to name the standout tracks, since... every tune is so solid.”
