It’s the first new date from the four piece since health issues forced them to shelve a number of tour dates.
The band have played a whole host of festivals already this summer, including Glastonbury, where we called their set on the Williams Green stage “a healing balm for a fractured society”.
In NME‘s review of the set, Jordan Bassett said: “Fontaines are about non-toxic patriotism and the desire to be better. Like Idles, they’ve helped fans to exorcise their sadness at societal divides. It’s healing. Also: the’ve got fucking great tunes.”
Earlier in the year, NME gave their debut album ‘Dogrel’ five stars in our review.
