The Chameleons: Home Is Where The Heart Is…2022: ‘Resurrection – The Academy Set From June 2000’
With demand to see the pre-Christmas homecoming of the cult Manchester outfit at an all-time high, The Chameleons are pleased to reveal some spectacular plans for what will be the seventh edition of ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is’.
Few bands are granted a second shot to return to their career peaks, but on Saturday 17th December 2022 The Chameleons will do just that as they headline the major stage of Manchester Academy for the first time in over 2 decades…
There are some gigs in every band’s career that simply stand out from the pack. Ask any Chameleons die-hard fan and they’ll tell you that the band’s show at Manchester Academy in the blazing hot summer of June 2000 was precisely one of those. With the 2000 plus crowd baying for “more” long after the lights went up after a blistering second encore of ‘Don’t Fall’ and a deafening, feedback-skewered cover of Alternative TV’s ‘Splitting In Two’; 20 years later, those calls will be answered.
Following the sell-out success and runaway enthusiasm amongst fan circles for the band’s ‘Return of The Roughnecks – The Ritz Set 1985’; The Chameleons now look to recapture the magic of another of their seminal performances. Next December, The Chameleons’ ‘Resurrection’ show will take the Manchester Academy audience back in time to June 2000 as they recreate one of their most legendary sets in its full and complete glory.
For some the Academy gig will be a second chance to relive one of their favourite ever performances, for others a redemptive opportunity to finally say “I Was There” too. From the reverberating bars of set-opener ‘Swamp Thing’, to the hurricane force of ‘A Person Isn’t Safe Anywhere These Days’, expect to be blown away as the band unfurl the enigmatic majesties of their greatest tracks heightened with tempestuous live versions: through ‘Second Skin’, to ‘Soul In Isolation’, to ‘Perfume Garden’.
