Fontaines D.C. have added two more dates to their biggest UK tour to date.
The Irish band, who are set to release their second album ‘A Hero’s Death’ later this month, will hit the road in May 2021, beginning in Manchester on May 7 before winding up at Alexandra Palace on May 27.
After the initial Manchester date, along with a Glasgow show at the Barrowlands, both sold out this morning (July 3), second dates have been revealed.
The band will now play Manchester Academy again on May 8 as well as the night before, with the sold-out Barrowlands date on the 14th being joined by a new show on the 15th.
NHS staff and Key Workers will also have the chance to secure free tickets to the shows, with 50 being made available at all regional shows, and a further 200 for London’s Alexandra Palace. Tickets will be distributed on a first come first served basis, and all applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org by 17:00pm BST on Tuesday 30th June, listing their profession and the show they want to attend.
