Next week Ride head out on the road for a 30th anniversary Nowhere tour in the UK. The 30th anniversary celebration was planned for 2020, however the festivities were delayed due to the pandemic. Ride are said to still be "buzzing about getting back on the road" and are thrilled to celebrate their debut album live, so fans attending can expect a magical experience.
