Blossoms / February and March 2016 UK/Irish Tour

 
By on Thursday, 29th October 2015 at 9:00 am
 

On the back of an amazing 2015 (and the year isn’t even out yet!), Stockport’s Blossoms have announced another UK tour for February and March 2016 and also live dates in Ireland. The band release the ‘Charlemagne’ EP tomorrow on their new label home, Virgin EMI. Watch the promo video for the catchy EP title track in this previous Video of the Moment post.

Tickets to this tour go on sale tomorrow (the 30th of October) at 9 AM. Be quick, as I expect these will go as quickly as the tickets did for their just completed tour of the UK this month. That campaign ended with a hometown show at the Manchester Ritz; for a flavour of what went down, you can watch a video put together by Charlie Watts below the tour dates.
