The O2 presents NME Rock N Roll Riot Tour dates revealed
The three bands will head off on tour from September 27 in Oxford, before heading around the country so expect onstage collaborations, guerrilla gigs, competitions and plenty of extra access here on NME.COM.
Having scored a Number One with their debut album, headliners The Enemy are itching to take their songs on the road.
“It’s going to be a celebratory tour of the album,” declared The Enemy’s frontman Tom Clarke. “I’m dead excited about it. It’s a wicked feeling hearing people singing ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’, it’s just amazing, it’s one of the most elating, exciting feelings you can ever have. The best thing is it’s not people singing back half-hearted – they were singing it with the same passion I recorded it, that’s one of the best things. So I can’t wait for the tour.”
Meanwhile Lethal Bizzle is already planning how to make the tour one to remember, promising some inter-band collaborations.
“It would be cool to something with The Enemy,” he explained. “I really like ‘Had Enough’. They seem like really cool guys. We did a gig together at The Astoria and because they crowd reaction was so intense they said that they wanted me to come on the Rock N Roll Riot Tour with them.”
With Liverpool’s The Wombats completing the line-up – “We’re really excited and we’re also really excited about playing with the other bands,” said singer Matthew Murphy – tickets are now set to go on sale tomorrow (July 24) at 9am.
