Eagles of Death Metal announce Download 2019 warm-up shows

The band will visit these shores in June

Eagles of Death Metal have announced a pair of warm-up UK gigs which will take place just ahead of their slot at Download Festival next summer.

The Jesse Hughes-led band will be one of the acts performing at Download in June, which takes place from June 14-16 at Donington Park. Def Leppard, Slipknot and Tool will headline the festival in 2019.

EODM will warm up for their Download slot with two UK shows: the first will take place in London at the Electric Ballroom on June 12, before the band will head up north for a gig at Glasgow’s Garage on June 13.


Tickets for the gigs will go on sale on Friday (November 30) at 9am, and you’ll be able to buy them here.

Eagles of Death Metal are set to release a covers album, ‘Pigeons of Shit Metal’ – with the title having been inspired by an insult Axl Rose once directed at the band.

The record will see EODM cover tracks by the likes of AC/DC, the Ramones and, of course, Rose’s Guns N Roses.

Earlier this month, Jesse Hughes said he was unable to attend a remembrance service in memory of the victims of the Batalcan attack in Paris because he had been involved in a car accident.
