Wild Beasts announce November UK tour dates

Band will hit the road for gigs in Liverpool, Nottingham, Oxford, Sheffield and Norwich

Wild Beasts have announced details of a brief UK tour to take place in November.

The band will play five gigs at the end of the month, starting in Liverpool on November 26 and ending in Norwich on November 30. The Lake District band will play shows in Nottingham, Oxford and Sheffield in between. A further, one-off show in Russia will happen on December 5 in Moscow.

Tweeting about the gigs earlier today (October 29), the band wrote simply: “We’re coming….”. The shows are the first Wild Beasts gigs in the UK since December 2012, when they played their most recent album ‘Smother’ in full at The Lexington in London.


Late last year it was reported that Wild Beasts had been working on the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Smother’ in Leeds. Wild Beasts released their debut ‘Limbo, Panto’ in 2008, following it with ‘Two Dancers’ in 2009 and ‘Smother’ in 2011.

Wild Beasts will play:

Liverpool Academy 2 (November 26)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (27)
Oxford Academy 2 (28)
Sheffield Queensbury (29)
Norwich Arts Centre (30)
