Fontaines D.C. have announced that they’ve added four extra dates to their 2021 UK tour – you see the full tour schedule below.
The Irish band, who released their second album ‘A Hero’s Death’ last week, announced last month that they would be heading out on their biggest UK tour to date next year.
After a number of initial dates sold out, the band added a couple of extra dates almost immediately in Manchester and Glasgow.
Today, Fontaines D.C., who are in the midst of a chart battle with Taylor Swift for this week’s UK Number 1 album, have added a further four dates to their tour due to demand.
Those who purchase their new album before midnight tonight (August 6) will get exclusive access to the ticket pre-order. “Buy our album from our webstore only before midnight tonight to get access to the pre-sale,” the band said on social media.
Pre-sale begins at 9am on August 12. Anyone who has already purchased the album via the band’s webstore will automatically get access.
Alternatively, those who sign up to the band’s mailing list will also get access to the pre-sale. Tickets go on general sale on August 14.
The 2021 tour’s additional dates are Edinburgh (May 1), Nottingham (May 3), Bath (May 4), and Liverpool (May 6).

NME’s four-star review of ‘A Hero’s Death‘ concluded: “In aiming to examine the self rather than please others, Fontaines D.C. have exerted a knack for writing anthems that are at once self-excoriating and intimately relatable.
“As the title track finishes with a clatter, Chatten drives one final wedge between his old and new selves. ‘That was the year of the sneer,’ he spits. Now the real thing’s here.'”
