Fender’s UK and European arena tour continues tonight (March 21) in Liverpool at the M&S Bank Arena, with two dates at London’s Wembley Arena set for early April.

Following his run of arena dates, he will play his biggest show yet at Finsbury Park in London this summer. Support will come from the likes of Fontaines D.C.Declan McKennaBeabadoobee and Goat Girl.

Meanwhile, Fender recently discussed how kids who bullied him at sixth form are now asking him to play their weddings, to which he had a very succinct reply.

“There was a corner of the common room that they used to call peasants’ corner, and that’s where I used to sit,” he recalled. “But they’re all asking us to play their weddings now. And I subsequently tell them all to fuck off. It’s wonderful.”

This month also saw Fender take home the Best Album In The World and Best Album By A UK Artist statues at the BandLab NME Awards 2022 for ‘Seventeen Going Under’. He also opened the ceremony with a performance of the record’s title track.
