Riding on the wave of a No.1 album, North London's Bombay Bicycle Club today announce a huge live show at London's Earls Court Arena, the capital's largest and most iconic venue, on December 13th 2014.
The band are honoured to perform at the arena which, since its opening in 1937, has seen some of the biggest names in music grace its stage, such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen and David Bowie. More recently the arena has played host to the likes of Muse, Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire. Now, the diversely talented Bombay Bicycle Club will be written into history alongside these iconic artists for what is set to be one of their most exciting live performances to date. Given the venue's storied history, the band took inspiration from some of the venue's earliest exhibition posters to create the striking artwork for the show. Tickets are available from 9am on Friday 18th July.
Guitarist Jamie MacColl says: "We seized at the chance to play one of London's most historic and important venues. This will be our first arena show so will be a momentous night for the band -- just thinking about it gets the adrenaline rushing!"
The quartet recently released new single 'Come To', the fourth single taken from their No.1 selling album 'So Long See You Tomorrow'. 'Come To' further cements an evolution in sound for the constant re-inventors who have secured their status as one of the UK's most innovative and important bands, creating stunning dance-inducing tracks tied together with Jack Steadman's signature vocals.
Currently in the midst of the UK summer festival circuit, Bombay Bicycle Club pulled in massive crowds performing an electrifying set at Radio 1's Big Weekend in May (the tent even had to be closed due to overcrowding!) and delighted tens of thousands of fans with a stunning performance at Glastonbury's Other Stage last month that saw one of the biggest crowds of the festival outside of the Pyramid Stage as well as a secret set on the Radio 1 Introducing Stage (that once again had to be closed due to overcrowding). Continuing with the festival circuit, they are set to bring their spectacular live set to T In The Park, Latitude and Reading & Leeds.
