Circa Waves have added two additional new dates to their upcoming August UK tour. The band will now begin the tour at the first newly added date at The 1865 on August 9 in Southampton, with the second additional show at the Liquid Room in Edinburgh on August 15. The tour also features their first gig back at the legendary Brixton Academy in London since the start of the pandemic.
The band’s frontman Kieran Shuddall stated that “We can’t believe we are finally going to be back playing live shows again next month!! Ahead of the excitement we decided to add a couple of intimate shows to our tour! 1865 in Southampton and Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh. These will sell out quickly, so make sure you’re up early to get yours tomorrow!!!”
The band had originally intended to go on tour last year in support of their most recent album ‘Sad Happy’, which was released in March 2020. This was then followed up by the surprise release of their EP ‘Sadder, Happier’ in May.
However, due to the enforced coronavirus shutdown of live music initially forced Circa Waves to postpone their touring plans into 2021. They were made to rearrange the dates for this March but again had to push it back even further this time to August.
With all legal COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England today (July 19), the band will now go ahead with their August dates and have added new shows in Southampton and Edinburgh.
All the Circa Waves’ UK tour dates are shown below. Tickets for the two new dates will go on sale tomorrow morning (July 20) at 9 am BST, whilst all remaining tickets for the existing shows can be bought here
