Australian Tour December 2020
UPDATE: Due to the restrictions surrounding COVID-19 – this tour has been rescheduled to December.
A statement from Fontaines D.C.:
“Unfortunately due to Covid-19 and the advice from the government, we’ve had to reschedule our Australian dates this April. We’re happy to say we’re coming back to play these shows this December. Tickets will remain valid so please hold onto them. We’re looking forward to seeing you then and in the meantime, keep safe x”
There has also been a venue change: any tickets originally purchased for Sunday April 26 at 170 Russell will be honoured for the rescheduled date Friday 11th December at Croxton Bandroom. If you are unable to attend the new date, please contact your point of purchase.
Fontaines D.C. met as a quintet in Dublin, influenced and driven in equal measure by the rich history of their hometown’s counter-culture, their response has been to make concise and immediately authentic indie-punk that has done anything but fall on deaf ears.
Their debut album, Dogrel (released in early 2019), spits, snarls and snaps with the very best of ‘em, but it also yearns, like the greatest Irish music must do. Their Mercury Prize-nominated debut earned the band incredibly high praise in the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, New York Times, Rolling Stone and many more. The Guardian even went as far as calling it a ‘perfect debut’.
The band have toured extensively over the last year, selling out their last three UK and EU headline tours, as well as a sold-out US tour.
Tickets on sale now. If their rapid upward trajectory is anything to go by, these tickets will move just as swiftly.
