The Maccabees have announced a ‘final’ farewell show next month

The intimate date comes right before the band's farewell tour proper.
The Maccabees have announced a ‘final’ farewell show, taking place in London next month.

The band will play a Omeara on 16th June, in aid of MS Society, which provides support for people living with multiple sclerosis.

They’ll be supported on the night by Mystery Jets and Imperial Daze, both of whom will play acoustic sets.

Tickets are available only via the Yala! Records mailing list. You can sign up at now.

That final show actually comes before the band’s farewell tour proper (it’s the last one to be announced, right? – Ed), which kicks off with three warm up dates in Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle. They’ll then play two nights at Manchester’s O2 Apollo and three at London’s Alexandra Palace. Come the morning of the 2nd July, The Maccabees will be no more.
