After 16 months of writing stories about postponed and canceled gigs, it sure is nice to write about newly-scheduled gigs … like the four that Gang of Youths announced today!
The gigs are all scheduled for late August and early September, sandwiching the previously announced All Points East and Neighbourhood Weekender festival appearances. Here’s the list of what was just announced:
- August 28: Trinity Centre, Bristol
- September 1: Old Market, Brighton
- September 2: Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
- September 5: SWG3, Glasgow
No support act has been announced yet.
There’s a ticket presale for GOY mailing list members that starts in just a few hours — 9 am local time in the UK. The general ticket sale starts at 9 am local time this Friday, July 2. Links and everything are on the band’s website.
At the moment, we’ve added these shows to our 2021 Miscellaneous Shows page; it doesn’t quite seem like a formal UK tour just yet, but we’ll move things around as needed.
Mad Cool Festival Update
In semi-related news, we missed this whenever it was officially announced, but anyway … Gang of Youths appearance at the 2021 Mad Cool Festival in Spain won’t happen next month, because the festival was canceled for this year.
But, the band is listed on the 2022 Mad Cool lineup and they’re scheduled to perform on Saturday, July 9.
