IDLES have announced plans to top off their huge 2019 with a short run of live shows.
The band, who released their huge album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’ last year, will play four final gigs in support of the record this December.
They’ll be playing in Glasgow, Manchester and Leeds, before topping things off with a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace. The dates are as follows.
03 Glasgow, Barrowland Ballroom
04 Manchester, Academy
05 Leeds, O2 Academy
07 London, Alexandra Palace
Tickets go on sale this Friday 28th June at 9.30am, with a pre-sale kicking off on Wednesday 26th over on the band’s website.
Not only that, but because they’re top lads, they’ve teamed up with Big Green Coach to offer a return coach journey to any fans wanting to travel to Alexandra Palace from Bristol, Bournemouth, Reading, Southampton and Swindon. Head here for more info.
