Royal Blood confirm UK tour dates for February 2015

Tickets for Brighton duo's last UK tour sold out in just two minutes

Royal Blood have announced their first live dates of 2015 with a full UK tour scheduled for February and March.

The two-piece band will play their biggest venues to date, starting in Glasgow on February 22. The tour will then see the band visit Plymouth, Bridlington, Portsmouth, Newport, Norwich, Blackpool and Wolverhampton before a London date at the O2 Academy Brixton on March 13. The tour will conclude the following night at Nottingham Rock City.

Tickets for all dates go on sale on Friday (October 17). In an effort to restrict the re-sale of tickets certain measures have been put in place to try and protect fans seeking to buy tickets at face value. These include printed identification on tickets and a limited allocation of four per order (two in London).

Royal Blood will play:

Glasgow, Barrowland (February 22)
Plymouth, Pavilions (27)
Bridlington, Spa (28)
Portsmouth, Guildhall (March 2)
Newport, Centre (3)
Norwich, UEA (5)

Royal Blood recently scored their first Number One in the Official UK Albums Chart with their self-titled debut LP, which has also been nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize. The duo sold nearly 66,000 copies of their eponymous record on its way to the top spot, making it the fastest-selling rock debut since Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ self-titled release in 2011.

These new tour dates are not to be confused with the band’s forthcoming UK and Ireland tour, which begins later this month. Tickets for the tour sold out in just two minutes.
