IDLES add extra dates to major 2021 UK and Ireland tour


Given the demand, IDLES have added more dates to their major 2021 UK and Ireland tour.

The band, preparing to release their third record Ultra Mono which is set to arrive on September 25th via Partisan Records, recently pencilled in a time when we will finally get to hear the new material in a space it was born to be played.

The tour will see IDLES begin the run with two shows at Glasgow’s Barrowlands with all roads leading to Brixton on June 18th and 19th with stops lined up in Newcastle, Cardiff, Sheffield, Birmingham and Dublin with tickets going on general sale on Friday at 10am. The band are also offering a limited number of free tickets for key workers which are available on a first-come-first-served basis, here.

The highly-anticipated follow-up to IDLES’ game-changing album Joy As An Act of Resistance looks set to be a barnstormer judging by the singles ‘Model Village’, ‘Mr Motivator’, ‘Grounds’ and ‘A Hymn’ which have all gone down an absolute treat.

Check out the tour dates, below.
