The Avalanches have announced a new set of headline tour dates in the UK – and fans be able to buy tickets here when they go on sale later this week.
The Australian band will tour this summer in support of their 2020 album We Will Always Love You, and are already confirmed for a slot on The Park Stage at Glastonbury in June.
The Avalanches will also play at a host of European festivals this summer, and they have now announced details of four headline UK shows in June. Gigs in Glasgow, Manchester, London and Brighton will take place ahead of their Glastonbury appearance on June 25.
Tickets for The Avalanches’ UK tour dates go on sale on Thursday (March 31), and you can find more information at the band’s official website. You can see details of their UK gigs below.
Last year The Avalanches reissued their 2000 debut album Since I Left You to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Originally released in Australia in 2000 and in the U.S/U.K. in 2001, the record was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world and later placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time.
Robbie Chater – who, along with Tony Di Blasi, remains at the core of The Avalanches line-up – said of the album: “I remember very clearly a few things – we decided to not have any of our voices on it, which made it last because it’s a kind of transmission; nothing date-stamps it to that time.
“Music lovers get it, and that’s what we ultimately are. It’s almost like an exploration of our relationship with the world and with music. Looking back, I’m proud of this record as a pure expression of joy and love, heart on its sleeve and is free from irony.”
The Avalanches play the following UK dates:
June 20 – QMU, Glasgow
June 21 – O2 Ritz, Manchester
June 22 – Electric Brixton, London
June 23 – Chalk, Brighton.
