Royal Blood Announce UK Summer Shows
Royal Blood have announced two warm-up shows ahead of their upcoming UK and European tour.
The gigs are: Nottingham Rock City (26 May) and Newcastle’s O2 City Hall (21 June). Tickets for both shows will go on sale HERE from 10am Thursday 6 April.
The new dates build upon a summer schedule which is packed with major outdoor shows. A huge homecoming On The Beach show in Brighton is sure to be a career highlight for the duo, Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher, while they are also confirmed to play three stadium shows as special guests to Muse. In addition, Royal Blood are set to be one of the defining bands of 2023’s festival circuit, with headline sets at Truck, Kendal Calling and Y NOT? as well as prime billing at both Glastonbury and TRNSMT.
In addition to the UK dates, listed below, Royal Blood will tour Europe throughout the summer with a mix of intimate headline shows and further gigs as special guests to Muse. They’re also confirmed to play two major North American festivals: Sea.Hear.Now and Louder Than Life.
Since debuting in 2013 with the single Out Of The Black, all three of Royal Blood’s albums have hit No 1 in the UK: their self-titled debut (2014), How Did We Get So Dark? (2017) and Typhoons (2021). The duo have won a host of awards, including the BRIT Award for Best British Group as well as further honours at the NME and Kerrang! Awards. Their biggest UK headline show to date was at London’s 20,000 capacity O2, and they have also played shows with Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys and Queens of the Stone Age.
