THE COMEBACK SPECIAL

    NOW AVAILABLE FROM OUR DEDICATED THE COMEBACK SPECIAL SHOP

    What started as an unforgettable live experience, and one of the band’s first performances after 16 years, now turns into an extraordinary live album, film & book as Matt Johnson’s London-based Cinéola label teams up with Hamburg-based international label, earMUSIC for a series of exciting and exclusive releases.

    To complete The Comeback Special experience, THE THE will also be launching a variety of exclusive products, all available in the official album store soon. This includes an exquisitely designed 136-page Art Book, featuring 6 discs, exclusive photos, audio content plus director Tim Pope’s beautifully shot, unobtrusive film of the show.

    The Royal Albert Hall concert was the first of a trio of London shows — the others taking place at Brixton Academy and the Troxy — all of which sold out within minutes of going on sale.

    Performing live for the first time in 16 years with a headline appearance at Denmark’s Heartland Festival a few days before the Royal Albert Hall concert, the rejuvenated THE THE, which featured previous members James Eller on bass, DC Collard on keyboards and Earl Harvin on drums and new member Barrie Cadogan on guitar alongside Matt Johnson, would go on to play sold-out shows and make festival headline appearances across the globe throughout 2018.
