Yeah Yeah Yeahs have added a second London date for their forthcoming UK run due to “overwhelming demand’.
The band were already set to play London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 7th June with support from Dry Cleaning and Anika. Now, they’ll also play it on the 8th, this time with Porridge Radio replacing Dry Cleaning on the supporting bill.
Karen O and co are also playing a Manchester show on 5th June, with support from English Teacher.

Yeah we’ve got some tunes so fresh and so NEW to try out on you! Yeah the bill is so MAJOR with Dry Cleaning and Anika in London and English Teacher in Manchester.
“Dress up! Make a night of it! Support your fave band that you may have seen debut at Brixton back in ’02!! Yeah let’s not wait another decade to see each other again! CANNOT WAIT! They don’t love ya like we do!! Luv YYYs.”
