BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB Tickets
Bombay Bicycle Club will embark on their biggest and most ambitious tour yet in December, a seven-date run of the UK before their previously announced mega-show at London’s Earls Court mega-show which has already had extra seats added due to popular demand.
They have announced a second show at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on 8th December, with their first date on the 7th December selling out in less than two weeks.
Bombay Bicycle Club’s critically acclaimed fourth album, So Long, See You Tomorrow, captures the results of singer Jack Steadman’s picaresque adventures in the likes of Turkey and India throughout 2013. Joyously escapist, its electronic-inflected and Bollywood-referencing sound made good on the Eastern promise, as it went straight to Number 1 in the album charts (Feb 2014) and reached silver status in record time.
With an expanded live line-up to cater to the ever-increasing range and complexity of their songs, this tour is not only their biggest in terms of venue, but also in terms of sound.
It follows on from their poignant, career augmenting performances on the Other Stage at Glastonbury and the Radio One stage at T in the Park, and their appearances to come at Reading and Leeds (NME/Radio 1 stage headliners).
Extra tickets have had to be made available for a huge live show at London’s Earls Court Arena, central London' s largest and most iconic venue, on December 13th 2014.
The band are honoured to perform at the arena which, since its opening in 1937, has seen some of the biggest names in music grace its stage, such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen and David Bowie.
More recently the arena has played host to the likes of Muse, Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire. Now, the diversely talented Bombay Bicycle Club will be written into history alongside these iconic artists for what is set to be one of their most exciting live performances to date.
Given the venue’s storied history, the band took inspiration from some of the venue's earliest exhibition posters to create the striking artwork for the show.
The quartet recently released new single ‘Come To’, the fourth single taken from their No.1 selling album ‘So Long See You Tomorrow’. ‘Come To’ further cements an evolution in sound for the constant re-inventors who have secured their status as one of the UK's most innovative and important bands, creating stunning dance-inducing tracks tied together with Jack Steadman’s signature vocals.
Currently in the midst of the UK summer festival circuit, Bombay Bicycle Club pulled in massive crowds performing an electrifying set at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in May (the tent even had to be closed due to overcrowding!) and delighted tens of thousands of fans with a stunning performance at Glastonbury’s Other Stage l that saw one of the biggest crowds of the festival outside of the Pyramid Stage as well as a secret set on the Radio 1 Introducing Stage (that once again had to be closed due to overcrowding).
Continuing with the festival circuit, they are set to bring their spectacular live set to T In The Park, Latitude and Reading & Leeds.
