Gretta Ray to open for Gang of Youths in London

Fans seeing Gang of Youths at any of the four London shows in April will have a chance to enjoy Gretta Ray, too.

The Aussie singer-songwriter shared the news of her own opening slot a few hours ago on Twitter. “More backstage dancing to Let Me Down Easy and hearing crowds scream the last chorus of Magnolia 😭❤️,” she said.

Ray was also GOY’s support act for the North American leg of the Say Yes To Life tour this past December.

Tour Rumors

While we’re here, fans in Europe might want to keep their eyes and ears peeled. We’re hearing rumors that Gang of Youths will be adding some more UK shows soon, as well as a festival appearance this summer in Italy.

Gang of Youths adds 4th show in London this April

It’s starting to look like a residency, isn’t it?

Gang of Youths is now set to play four shows this April at Islington Assembly Hall in London. The fourth show on April 7th was just announced today, and tickets are available as I type this via

GOY sold out three shows at the venue in rapid fire last week when tickets first went on sale for the April 3 concert.

Will there be a 5th show? A 6th? Your guess is as good as mine. There’s clearly demand to see the band — at the moment, these are the only headlining shows on GOY’s 2019 schedule. Everything else is festival appearances and the opening slot for Mumford & Sons European tour.

UPDATE: The band has now announced that this will be the final show, and no more will be announced:

Gang of Youths adds two more London shows in April

Gang of Youths is now set to play not one, not two … but three shows at London’s Islington Assembly Hall in early April.

It all happened in a matters of a couple hours this morning as tickets for the first show (April 3) went on sale and sold out instantly. A second show for April 4 was announced, and when that sold out a third show was added for April 6.

It’s now several hours later and, as I type this, tickets are still available at this link for the third show.

These shows will likely serve as a sort-of warmup for the Mumford & Sons support slot, which starts later in April. But there’s almost three weeks in between these London shows and that first Mumford show in Lisbon … so if the band decided they want to do some more UK/European dates, they could.
