The Wombats confirm a full UK tour from September
Fresh from announcing their biggest London show to date at Alexandra Palace, The Wombats can now confirm a full UK tour which will commence in September. The tour will follow a packed summer festival schedule which includes Reading, Leeds and T in the Park, plus international dates in a further fourteen countries including America, Australia and Russia.
The trio’s most recent tour in support of their new album ‘Glitterbug’ (which hit #5 in the UK and #2 in Australia) was entirely sold-out, and included a London date at O2 Academy Brixtom. The NME’s review of their Bristol show stated: “This sold-out comeback tour is where the fun bursts back into gig going.” NME’s subsequent feature added that The Wombats “were met with heroes’ welcome from their public” at shows across Europe.
Their performance of ‘Be Your Shadow’ from the Brixton show can be seen at https://youtu.be/N1ABXYMEj-I.
