The Irish band’s tour, which is in support of their latest album ‘Skinty Fia’, kicks off at Hull Bonus Arena on November 7, with dates also lined up in Manchester, London, Glasgow and Dublin. Belfast’s Ulster Hall will play host to two final shows December 7-8.

In other news, the band invited a fan to play guitar with them on stage during their Reading Festival set on Saturday (August 27).

Fontaines D.C. were playing on the festival’s Main Stage this evening ahead of Arctic Monkeys, and spotted a fan named Dexter in the crowd holding a sign aloft asking to play guitar with them.

Granting the request, the fan then hopped on stage and joined the band for a rendition of their hit ‘Boys In The Better Land’.

Elsewhere in the set Fontaines played hits from their three studio albums, opening with ‘A Lucid Dream’ and ending with ‘I Love You’.
