It’s been 25 years since the release of American Football’s self-titled debut LP - and ten since the Midwest emo icons reunited - and to celebrate, they’ve confirmed plans for a handful of 2024 UK shows.

Kicking things off by headlining the Sunday night of this year’s Outbreak Festival in June, the band will then return in Autumn for three special shows in Nottingham, Glasgow, and London, which will see them pay homage to their influential 1999 release ‘American Football (LP1)’. Since then, they’ve released two more self-titled records and collaborated with the likes of Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell.

Tickets for the upcoming UK shows will go on sale here on Friday 2nd February, and you can find out the details of where they’ll be stopping off below.
