The Wonder Years have announced a UK and European Tour in January and February 2017. The band released latest album, the critically acclaimed No Closer To Heaven, last year and played a handful of intimate shows in the UK this summer, but this just-announced tour will, for many, be the first chance to see the band headline dates in this part of the world since the album was released.
Joining them (for part of the tour, anyway) will be Canadian punk rock foursome PUP (Jan 31st to Feb 5th) and emo revivalists Tiny Moving Parts.
The Wonder Years’ vocalist Dan “Soupy” Campbell talks about the upcoming tour: “When we came to the UK in July to do small, intimate shows, we did it because we knew we wouldn’t be able to come back until around February. Those shows sold out in a matter of hours and we know that a lot of people were bummed they couldn’t get tickets but we told everyone to sit tight because we knew this run with PUP and Tiny Moving Parts was on the horizon. We’re going to bring the same energy we just brought in those tiny venues to these rooms with sets that span years of releases and a few tricks up our sleeves.”
The shows include dates at London’s Koko, Birmingham’s o2 Institute and Manchester’s o2 Ritz, which will be The Wonder Years’ biggest headline performances in the UK so far. See full dates, below.
A special o2 pre-sale will be available tomorrow (Wednesday, September 28th) with tickets going on general sale Friday September 30th at 9am BST. GA Tickets / VIP Packages will also be available, here.
