Just a day after claiming the top spot on the UK album chart with their beguiling second album Coexist, The xx have announced a 5-date UK tour for this December.
The trio will begin touring North America next month, head to Europe in November and then be back for their UK fans on 6 December for a UK tour that starts in Brighton and winds up in London on 16 December. Here’s the full UK dates:
6 Dec – Brighton, Dome
11 Dec – Newcastle, o2 Academy
12 Dec – Wolverhampton, Civic Hall
14 Dec – Bristol, Colston Hall
16 Dec – London, Brixton Academy
Presale tickets will be available this Wednesday (19 September) for anyone who’s prepared to give up their email address (which you can do here). If you’re a stickler for that kind of thing, you’ll have to wait until the tickets go on general sale – which is 9am this Friday (21 September).
