Yungblud was one of the many British artists who had to reschedule their upcoming summer tour due to the coronavirus. Fans have been waiting for a confirmation of rescheduled dates just as much Yungblud himself. Now, the 22-year-old finally got to reveal the new dates for his “Occupy the UK!!!” tour!
Back in January, the Doncaster rockstar announced his original tour dates, which were supposed to start off in Glasgow on May 22, with five shows at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town along the road. After it was clear that those tour dates could no longer go ahead as planned, fans were eagerly awaiting a public statement regarding a new schedule. We’re pleased to tell you: The wait is finally over.
On Monday (June 29), Yungblud took to his social media platforms to share the new dates. The tour will now take place in March 2021, kicking off at Nottingham’s Rock City on March 8 and 9, before continuing with two shows in Glasgow and then ending with five nights at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.

“WERE FOOKIN BACK!”, Yungblud, real name Dominic Harrison, excitedly posted on social media. “here are the new dates for the uk shows … i can’t wait to be with you all. im countin down the minutes…all tickets still valid!” The “Weird!” singer has chosen four different support acts: Wargasm and Noisy will open the Nottingham and Glasgow shows, whereas the support acts are splitting the London shows. Night 1 and 2 will be opened by Kenny Hoopla, with Noisy playing night 3 and Wargasm playing night 4, before Dylan is performing at the final night 5.
The news about the rescheduled dates come after Yungblud announced the return of his YouTube series “The Yungblud Show”, in which he’s been keeping fans entertained during quarantine. The latest episode has aired last Thursday (June 25) with all proceeds going to Black Lives Matter.
