Gang of Youths to support Sam Fender at 5 UK shows

Gang of Youths will play five shows around the UK as the support act for Sam Fender. The 9-day run is part of Fender’s Hypersonic Missiles UK tour, and all shows are already sold out.

The dates and locations are:

  • March 26 & 27: Alexandra Palace, London
  • March 31: Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
  • April 2: First Direct Arena, Leeds
  • April 3: Utilita Arena, Newcastle

Those are fairly big arenas, ranging from about 10,000 capacity to almost 14,000 at First Direct Arena in Leeds. GOY played bigger venues in the past when supporting Mumford & Sons and Foo Fighters, but this will prove to be good exposure, nonetheless, especially with a new album on the way.

Brooke Bentham is opening four prior shows for Fender in Manchester and Glasgow.
