Bastille // Announce Biggest Headline Tour

Earlier this year their ‘Bad Blood Tour’ sold out in an instant and then there was the autumn tour which sold out in a matter of hours. Now Bastille are pleased to announce a 2014 UK tour kicking off in February next year, which sees the band play 5 dates across the UK culminating in a spectacular show at London’s Alexandra Palace. 
The Bad Blood Tour Part III comes fresh off the back of a run of huge UK festival appearances and their No.1 album ‘Bad Blood’ reaching landmark sales to become the biggest selling debut album of the year. 

Tickets go on general sale on Friday 30th August 9am

We caught up with Bastille on their last headline tour. Click HERE to read the interview in full.

The band have had a packed summer in 2013 seeing them on some of the biggest stages on the festival circuit including performances at Radio 1 Big Weekend, T in the Park, Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, and headlining stages at Wakestock, Blissfields and Standon Calling. 

Their last tour in March of this year Bastille took 16 UK cities by force, with the final two nights at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire selling out. The tour itself sold out months in advance, long before the release of their debut album and saw fans ecstatically singing along to every word at every show. ‘Bad Blood’ is the band’s platinum selling debut album and the biggest selling debut album of year, which was released on Virgin Records and soared to No.1 in the UK charts a week after their fourth single ‘Pompeii’ reached no.2 in the singles chart.
