Fontaines D.C. Has Added More Dates to Their UK and Ireland Tour

Fontaines D.C. has announced more dates for their upcoming 2022 UK and Ireland tour. The Irish band’s tour, which will kick off on 7th November at Hull Bonus Arena in promotion of their new album ‘Skinty Fia,’ will also include stops in Manchester, London, Glasgow, and Dublin.

Fontaines D.C. has added more dates to their tour after adding three new events to the calendar last month in Manchester, London, and Dublin.

The band will now perform in the O2 Academy Leeds on 9th November, the O2 Academy Glasgow on 18th November, the Eventim Apollo in London for a third night on 26th November, and the Ulster Hall in Belfast on 8th December.

“We’re pleased to announce a second night in Leeds, Glasgow, and Belfast and a third night in London on our UK & Ireland Tour this November,” the band wrote in a social media announcement.

Fontaines D.C. released a brand new tune called ‘Roman Holiday’ on 19th April. Following previous singles ‘I Love You,’ ‘Jackie Down The Line’ and the album’s title track, the song is the fourth to be taken from the Irish band’s upcoming new album, ‘Skinty Fia,’ which is due for release on 22nd April via Partisan Records.

That cover came the same week that CHVRCHES performed their rendition of ‘Just Like Heaven’ for the second time, two weeks after they initially performed the song on stage at the BandLab NME Awards 2022 with Cure vocalist Robert Smith.

Meanwhile, the band won the award for Best Band In The World at last month’s BandLab NME Awards 2022, beating Amyl & The Sniffers, Ben&Ben, Bring Me The Horizon, CHVRCHES, Glass Animals, HAIM, Måneskin, Nova Twins, and Wolf. Fontaines D.C. won the only prize they were nominated for at the BandLab NME Awards 2022.
