Returning to the venue where they played their biggest sold-out London headline show to-date, Fontaines DC have announced that they’ll be performing a virtual gig from O2 Academy Brixton on 23rd November!
“Brixton was one of the last places we played to an audience and it was a really special show for us,” they say. “It’s a weird thing to be playing a show to an empty room, regardless of the size or esteem of it. Maybe even more so because of that. Hopefully though with you there we can get back some kind of ghost of that feeling, even if it’s not quite the same.”
The virtual gig comes ahead of their 2021 headline tour. See the full list of dates below!
