Incubus announce first UK headline tour in over three years (2018)


Story by Jack Foley

MULTI-platinum Los Angeles rock band Incubus have announced their first UK headline tour in over three years.

The band will play a total of three dates, which will see them play Birmingham, London and Manchester this September.

Since their formation in 1991, Brandon Boyd [vocals], Mike Einziger [guitar, piano, backing vocals], José Pasillas II [drums], Chris Kilmore [turntables, keyboards], and Ben Kenney [bass] have consciously and continually shifted their perspective with each subsequent album.

Their recent eighth full-length album, the aptly titled 8 [Island Records], arrived at a significant milestone for Incubus – releasing exactly 20 years since their major label debut, S.C.I.E.N.C.E., landed back in 1997.

As of last year the band’s sales exceeded 23 million worldwide, while landing four Top 5 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 and one #1 album.

They’ve graced the stages of festivals everywhere from Lollapalooza and Air + Style to Download Festival and Pinkpop in addition to touring alongside the likes of Deftones, Linkin Park, OutKast, Moby, Jane’s Addiction, Queens of the Stone Age, and many more.

Incubus’ new live UK dates follow a huge summer of festival appearances across the US.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, April 27.

The dates are (all September 2018)

4 – Birmingham O2 Academy
6 – London O2 Academy Brixton
8 – Manchester O2 Apollo
