King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have today announced a run of EU & UK dates in early summer 2024. The band headlined this year’s End of The Road Festival and recently released their 25th album, The Silver Cord, which saw the Melbourne band make a foray into electronic music.
Having played various one-off shows in the UK over the past few years, these gigs, which include their already announced headline slot at next year’s Wide Awake Festival alongside five other shows, will be the first time the band have actually toured the UK since 2019.
Additionally, the band recently announced further U.S. dates where they will be performing their acclaimed 3-hour marathon sets, including a show in Quincy, WA, at the legendary Gorge Amphitheatre (which, at a capacity of 21,600 tickets, will be the band’s largest headline show to date). They also play one of their 3-hour sets in Hamburg in May.
