Band will take their new album 'If You Wait' on the road in January and February
London Grammar have announced details of a lengthy UK tour to take place at the beginning of next year.
The band, who recently missed out on a Mercury Prize nomination despite being favourites for the award prior to the shortlist announcement, will play 14 gigs during the tour, including a show at London’s Troxy. London Grammar released their debut album ‘If You Wait’ on September 9 and saw it debut in the Official Album Chart at Number Two, behind Arctic Monkeys’ ‘AM’.
Starting in Cardiff on January 28, London Grammar will then play gigs in Manchester, Nottingham, Cambridge, Brighton, London, Liverpool, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Bournemouth and Birmingham before ending the jaunt in Bristol on February 17. Scroll down to see the full list of dates.
