The Angel In Realtime tour expands: 10 new shows added in Europe this fall

Dave and Tom weren’t kidding a couple weekends ago when they said Gang of Youths would be doing “more touring.”

The band announced the addition of 10 more European shows in October and November today. The new shows are part of the fifth leg of the Angel In Realtime tour, and will see the band playing in the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, and Germany.

The new shows added to that fifth leg are as follows:

October 28: Frankfurt, Germany
October 30: Nijmegen, Netherlands
October 31: Groningen, Netherlands
November 9: London, UK
November 12: Manchester, UK
November 13: Dublin, Ireland
November 15: Belfast, N. Ireland
November 17: Sheffield, UK
November 18: Nottingham, UK
November 20: Cardiff, UK

Tickets for all the shows go on sale to the general public this Friday, July 22. You can find purchase links via the band’s website. There’s also a pre-sale for members of the band’s mailing list, and that starts on Wednesday.

Gang of Youths to headline “Back the Night” festival in Sydney

Gang of Youths’ Sydney homecoming is gonna happen a couple months earlier than expected.

The band has just been announced as headliners for “Back the Night,” an American Express-hosted music festival that will help get Sydney’s live music industry back on its feet after the pandemic.

Gang of Youths will perform on Sunday, May 29, at Oxford Art Factory. One ticket covers you for the entire festival, and as of this moment, tickets are showing as available on Ticketmaster AU.

With a capacity of about 500, Oxford Art Factory will be by far the smallest Australian venue the band plays this year. Oxford Art Factory was one of the band’s frequent venues in its early years. They played there six times between 2013-2015, most recently on June 2, 2015.

Back the Night is a one-night festival with more than a dozen artists performing at six venues across Sydney. Money raised will benefit Support Act, a charity that assists members of the music industry who are facing hardships.

London Grammar was previously announced as the headline act, but they had to drop out due to “an unforeseen personal issue.”

Gang of Youths will be playing its first Australian gig in more than two years. Their last “home” gig was the Down to Earth climate relief concert on February 26, 2020. They weren’t due to return to Australia until August as part of the fourth leg of the Angel In Realtime tour — and when they return at that time, the band will be playing some of the biggest venues in the country.

Gang of Youths Scheduled to Appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live Next Week

Gang of Youths is scheduled to complete the U.S. late-night TV trifecta next week with an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The band is listed as musical guests on the Wednesday, May 18 show. It’ll be interesting to see if and how Donnie’s hand injury affects this performance.

Gang of Youths has already performed on Kimmel’s two primary late-night competitors. In December, the band did a pre-recorded version of “The Angel Of 8th. Avenue” on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. And just last month, they performed “In The Wake Of Your Leave” live on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy Kimmel Live typically airs right after your late local news on ABC affiliates, but check local listings to confirm when it’ll be on in your area.
