The Blackout announce intimate UK tour – ticket details

Welsh rockers will play four shows ahead of the release of their fourth album

The Blackout have announced an intimate UK tour for October.

The Welsh rockers, who released their third album ‘Hope’ in April 2011, will play four shows on the tour.

The gigs begin at Leeds Cockpit on October 23 before the band move on to Bournemouth’s Old Fire Station on October 24.


The Blackout will then play Oxford’s O2 Academy 2 on October 25 and finally London’s Underworld on October 29.

The dates are in support of the band’s as yet untitled fourth album, which they have recorded with McFly/Kids In Glass Houses producer Jason Perry.

The album is expected to be released later this year, and judging by the band’s recent postings on their Facebook page, the LP will be themed around partying.
