Glasgow-based trio Chvrches have announced an extensive tour of the UK and Ireland today. The news follows the release of the band’s third album Love is Dead back in May, and will be a continuation of their current world tour. Tickets go on sale here at 9am on Friday July 20, and you can check out the full list of dates below.
The band also recently played Citadel Festival on July 15, which caused outrage amongst fans after hundreds were left stranded in London after the event.
The tour will see the group hit up many of the UK and Ireland’s major cities, throughout February 2019. Proceedings kick off at London’s Alexandra Palace, before wrapping up at the Dublin Olympia two weeks later. The tour also sees a homecoming visit to their native Glasgow, at the SSE Hydro, on February 16.
Last month, Chvrches covered Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ for Spotify’s ongoing Singles series. The band have some history for this, having covered the Barbadian singer’s collaboration with superstar DJ Calvin Harris for Radio 1’s Live Lounge back in 2016.
