The Verve

THE VERVE. English alternative rock band formed in 1989 in Wigan. Beginning with a psychedelic sound indebted to shoegazing and space-rock ; by the mid-1990s the band had released several EPs and three albums. The band's commercial breakthrough was the 1997 album Urban Hymns which became one of the best-selling albums in UK chart history yielding the worldwide hit single "Bitter Sweet Symphony". Soon after this commercial peak, The Verve broke up in April 1999 citing internal conflicts. During an eight-year split, Richard Ashcroft dismissed talk of a reunion saying ; "You're more likely to get all four Beatles on stage". The original line-up reunited in June 2007, embarking on a tour later that year and releasing the album Forth in August 2008. In 2009, the band broke up for the third time ......

The Verve

Reference number:

7256
Sold

Description:

A very good large pair of 1998 autograph book pages, clearly signed in red markers by all four group members ; Richard Ashcroft (adding 1998) / Simon Jones / Simon Tong and Nick McCabe.

 

 

Certification:

One of a huge collection of over 1000 autographs in around a dozen large books all obtained in person (between 1990-1999 mostly in the Manchester area) by husband and wife Tony & Kath (many autographs are personally dedicated / dated to them with messages of thanks from the artists). The majority of signatures are of the major pop-groups of the period (including many Brit-Pop) signed at the various Manchester music venues (The Apollo / Nymex Arena / The Academy / G-Mex Centre and The University Union) and also at festivals (the T-Festival Strathclyde 1995-97). From the notes / dedications within the books and the difficult accessibility into such premium venues & concerts, we believe the couple must have worked in positions that gave / allowed them back-stage access during the period. The Verve played the Manchester Apollo on 13-14th January 1998 during The Urban Hymns Tour. The position / number of this page within the books and our research leads us to conclude that this is likely to be the actual signing date for this autograph. IAA.
