20th Anniversary Edition On Vinyl LP!
1999 marked a momentous year for Scottish rock band Travis. Singer/songwriter Fran Healy, guitarist Andy Dunlop, drummer Neil Primrose, and bassist Dougie Payne had been together since the beginning of the decade, and were gearing up for the release of their sophomore album, The Man Who, following the release of their 1997 debut, Good Feeling. Though the album found moderate success in the UK and set the band up for extensive touringopening for the likes of OasisTravis were still reasonably unknown internationally. All of that was about to change.
With The Man Who having only been in the record shops for a month, Travis played the Other Stage at the Glastonbury Festival. It had been glorious weather, but, as they played their soon-to-be-released single "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?", the heavens opened. The soggy crowd went wild, and the performance went down as one of the all-time great shows in the festival's 50-year history. By the time "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" was released as a single five weeks later, Travis and The Man Who were on the precipice of international stardom, and would go on to headline Glastonbury a year later.
