Preachers pray for a super gig/

Welsh rockers the Manic Street Preachers are praying for a return to form when they hit Glasgow on Wednesday.

Just weeks ago, the brooding indie trio had to cancel their gig at the SECC when singer James Dean Bradfield was struck down with flu.

But now James, Nicky Wire and Sean Moore, above, have vowed to finish off their tour in style - with

new guitarist Guy Massey. But they insist they're NOT replacing original band member Richey Edwards, who mysteriously disappeared nearly ten years ago.

Bassist Nicky, 33, said: "It was a difficult decision but we needed another guitarist desperately.

"It's not like he's replacing Richey. We've known Guy since 1996 and always knew he was a good guitarist." The Manics recently penned a tribute to Richey - whose car was found abandoned near the Severn Bridge in South Wales - called Cardiff Afterlife.

Nicky said: "It recalls the images, all the things he cherished and remembering that he was a brilliant guy to be around."

Now they have promised to treat fans to classics like You Love Us and Revol, as well as singles from their current album Lifeblood.

The Manics play at Glasgow's SECC on Wednesday night. Original tickets from December are valid.
