Title: Our Manics In Havana Comeback
Publication: Daily Mirror

Welsh chart-toppers The Manic Street Preachers are Havana go at something new for their 2001 comeback.

James Dean Bradfield & Co will jet out to the Cuban capital in the New Year to officially launch their sixth album, Know Your Enemy.

It will be the first time a western band has headlined in Havana - a city more associated with cigars than rock stars.

The trio will take the stage where Cuban President Fidel Castro gives his mammoth four-hour lectures to the masses.

Bass player Nicky Wire said: "It could be a disaster. There might be no PA or whatever, but it's the idea that it's a bit of an adventure.

"So many bands these days just come back in the usual way and that's one thing that we're not going to do this time.

"We want to make it a lot more interesting and stimulating.

There are even rumours Castro could be at the concert in the city's Karl Marx Theatre to listen to the boys from Blackwood, Gwent.
