The Enemy announce recession-friendly £5 tour

Band reveal cheap ticketing plans for headline UK tour

The Enemy are setting out on a UK tour where all tickets will cost just £5.

The band, who released their third album ‘Streets In The Sky’ in 2012, will play eight shows through February and March. The tour, which is being held in conjunction with nationwide club night Propoganda, starts in Glasgow on February 1.

The cut-price live shows will then continue in Sheffield, Dublin, Leeds, London, Oxford, Birmingham, Newcastle and Northampton.

Tom Clarke of The Enemy last year criticised the amount of pop acts at music festivals, saying: “Hapless karaoke cretins. That’s my summary of the 2012 festival season. Olly Murs playing The Clash, The Jam and Supergrass at this year’s festivals… why not just book Supergrass? All these current trendy artists must get booked and then remember they don’t have any of their own songs. Then they panic and think, ‘What do people at festivals want? Bands.’ So then they cover some bands. Pointless. Write some songs.”

The Enemy will play:

Glasgow O2 ABC (Feb 1)
Edinburgh HMV Picture House (2)
Sheffield O2 Academy (8)
Dublin Academy (9)
Leeds O2 Academy (16)
London Islington O2 Academy (22)
Oxford O2 Academy (23)
Birmingham O2 Academy (March 1)
Newcastle O2 Academy (2)
Northampton Roadmender (8)
