Bombay Bicycle Club say they’ve been ‘put off’ doing stadium shows

Bombay Bicycle Club have said that they’ve been ‘put off’ doing stadium shows after playing a huge venue in Poland.

The band recently played a stadium in Warsaw, but labelled the experience ‘strange’. Speaking to Digital Spy, guitarist Jamie MacColl commented: “We were doing a festival in a stadium, which was quite strange. It put me off playing stadiums so it might be the only stadium we ever do.”

Bassist Ed Nash added 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 explained, adding that he would still like to do a stadium tour “but I don’t think anyone would be there. It would be very empty.”

“The smallest stadium tour in the world. I’d be up for that,” finished MacColl.

Bombay Bicycle Club recently unveiled the video to their new single ‘Come To’ – watch it below. The video was filmed during the band’s March show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. ‘Come To’ is the latest single from the band’s fourth album ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, which was released earlier this year. It will be available from August 18.
