Bloc Party today announce they will play their seminal debut album Silent Alarm live and in full for the first time to audiences across Europe this autumn. The band will play a handful of special shows across six European capital cities, commencing in Amsterdam on 15 October and taking in Paris, Berlin, Brussels and Dublin, before culminating with a night at London’s Alexandra Palace on 24 October.
