Band reveal tongue-in-cheek documentary ahead of December 13 gig

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced details of a one-off gig at London venue Earls Court Arena in December.

The band will play their biggest London gig to date on December 13. Tickets are available from 9am on Friday (July 18). To celebrate the announcement, the band have unveiled a documentary set in the future looking back on the gig with guest appearances Elbow frontman Guy Garvey among others. Click below to watch now.

Speaking about the gig, guitarist Jamie MacColl says: “We seized at the chance to play one of London’s most historic and important venues. This will be our first arena show so will be a momentous night for the band – just thinking about it gets the adrenaline rushing!”

The band recently said they had been ‘put off’ doing stadium shows after playing a huge venue in Poland. The four-piece played a stadium in Warsaw earlier this year, but labelled the experience ‘strange’. Bassist Ed Nash commented that playing the stadium sounded like ‘a complete mess’ for the band when they were onstage. “They’re so big and reverberant that you play a note and then you hear it a good five seconds later coming back at you so it sounds like a complete mess, unlike anything we’ve ever heard before,” he said.

Bombay Bicycle Club released their latest album ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’ earlier this year. The album is the fourth of the band’s career and follows ‘Flaws’, ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’ and 2009 debut ‘I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose’.
