Fidlar announce details of UK comeback gig in London

LA band line up one-off gig at capital's Heaven venue on June 23

Fidlar have announced a one-off show in London next month.

The LA band have posted a short video, which you watch below, which reveals plans for a live gig at the capital’s Heaven venue on June 23.

Tickets are on sale now. To check the availability of Fidlar tickets and get all the latest listings, head to NME.COM/tickets.

Before that the band will be appearing at Download Festival on June 14. They’re also due to appear at this year’s Reading And Leeds Festivals over the weekend of August 28-30.

Earlier this year, Fidlar covered Sheryl Crow’s ‘If It Makes You Happy’.

The band transformed the 1996 original into a much heavier song, complete with pych-pop verses and a scream heavy chorus. They also synced the song up with Crow’s original video.

‘If It Makes You Happy’ is the latest one-off cover from Fidlar following their take on Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ ‘Red Right Hand’, which was debuted in 2013. They are currently believed to be working on the follow up to their self-titled debut album.

Fidlar have previously covered Blink-182’s ‘Dammit’, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Lodi’, Warren Zevon’s ‘Carmelita’ and Fear’s ‘I Don’t Care About You’.

The last band to create a high profile cover of a Sheryl Crow song were Haim, whose take on ‘Strong Enough’ can be heard here. In November 2013 they were joined live onstage by Lorde to perform the song during a gig at New York’s Roseland Ballroom.

To all our mates across the pond…
