Mercury Nominees FONTAINES D.C. Add Huge Date to Winter UK Tour 2

Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dogrel’ (which charted at #9 in the UK album chart, and landed them a Mercury Prize Nomination), as well as a sold-out US tour with labelmates IDLES, an electrifying performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, a mind-blowing Glastonbury 2019 performance, and yet another BBC 6 Music A listing for their fan-favourite single ‘Boys In The Better Land’; Fontaines D.C. are making their mark.

Today, the band continue their rapid upward trajectory with the announcement of their biggest headline show to date at London’s O2 Academy, Brixton on Tuesday 25th February 2020. Tickets will go on sale via O2 pre-sale on 31ST July at 9 AM and 2ND August at 9 AM on general sale HERE.

The band have toured extensively over the last year selling out every date of their own EU and UK headline tours in December 2018, January 2019 and April 2019, as well as supporting IDLES on a sold-out 30 date US tour and Shame on their last UK tour. They also have further North American headline dates lined up for September with support from label-mates Pottery, before returning to tour the EU and UK across November (sold out 6 months in advance) and December later this year.
