Bastille have announced a series of tenth-anniversary shows for their debut album, ‘Bad Blood’

The ten-show UK run will take place over June and July 2023.

Bastille will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of their debut album, ‘Bad Blood’, with a new slate of UK shows next summer.

The indie-turned-pop-rock quartet have remained active over the last decade, creatively reinventing their sound with each iteration of the band – particularly on their recent fourth LP, ‘Give Me The Future’, which Dork’s 4-star review said, “embraces the possibilities of a limitless universe”. Frontman Dan Smith admitted, “I would be lying if I said we set out to make this album,” in their recent Dork cover feature, which you can read here.

However, the ‘Bad Blood X’ tour is set to throw the band back to their roots. The ten-stop tour will take the group from Dublin’s summer series, through London’s Alexandra Palace Park, and conclude with a pair of castle shows. Running from June 28th to July 23rd 2023, the landmark chart-topping debut will be played in full alongside other fan favourites.

Bastille have honed their live shows over the years, with recent standout performances at London’s The 02 and Reading Festival 2022 truly proving their worth, but it will be a drastic change to see the bombastic alt-pop heights of recent material be reversed in exchange for the group’s more modest and acoustic origins.

Tickets for all shows will be available here from 10am this Friday, November 4th.
