Manic Street Preachers - Manic Street Preachers Worried About Musical Return

Manic Street Preachers are worried there will be no music industry left when they return from their hiatus.

The 'Motorcycle Emptiness' group are to take a break for at least two years from 2012 after playing a final farewell show in which they will play every single they have released between 1991 and 2011 in London, and with the decline in sales of singles and albums, are wary of how the musical landscape will look when they return.

Bass player Nicky Wire said: "I think the greatest hits is completing the end of the second great cycle of Manic Street Preachers. Hopefully there will be a third, but we've got a job to take on to do that. And who knows what we'll be left with in terms of a music industry by then? We'll just have to wait and see."

Nicky assures the groups final show - which is accompanied by an album featuring the same tracks - will see them go out with a bang.

He added to NME magazine: "We've never done anything on this scale before. It's going to be an immense project, production-wise, screens, videos, you name it, you know it'll be a completely unique thing. And we'll never do it again. Its' really, kind of, finishing up."
