Story by Jack Foley
BASTILLE have announced a 2014 UK tour kicking off in February next year.
The latest jaunt will see the band play five dates across the UK culminating in a spectacular show at London’s Alexandra Palace.
The Bad Blood Tour Part III comes fresh off the back of a run of huge UK festival appearances and their No.1 album Bad Blood reaching landmark sales to become the biggest selling debut album of the year.
Tickets go on general sale on Friday, August 30.
The UK dates are (all February and March 2014):
27 – Edinburgh Corn Exchange
28 – Manchester Apollo
3 – Plymouth Pavilion
4 – Bournemouth BIC
6 – London Alexandra Palace
The band have had a packed summer in 2013 seeing them on some of the biggest stages on the festival circuit, including performances at Radio 1 Big Weekend, T in the Park, Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, and headlining stages at Wakestock, Blissfields and Standon Calling.
During their last tour in March of this year Bastille took 16 UK cities by force, with the final two nights at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire selling out. The tour itself sold out months in advance, long before the release of their debut album.
