Bastille announce April 2018 UK tour

Bastille have announced a five-date headline UK tour for April 2018.

The ‘Reorchestrated tour’ will see the band perform with a string and brass section, and choir, showcasing reworkings of ‘Wild World’ and ‘Bad Blood’.

Speaking of the new tour, frontman Dan Smith said: “Earlier this year, we did a special one-off show to raise money for Streets of London, in it we deconstructed and totally rearranged a bunch of our songs using strings, brass, and a gospel choir. It was one of my favourite things we’ve ever been able to do.

“We are incredibly excited to take that setup on the road for this Reorchestrated tour, which will see us playing some amazing venues and concert halls around the UK and Europe. It makes for a very different kind of Bastille show where we totally reframe and reimagine our songs with the help of some incredible musicians, in a special and intimate setting.”

The full tour dates are as follows:

APRIL
10th MANCHESTER, O2 Apollo
11th EDINBURGH, Usher Hall
13th BRISTOL, Colston Hall
14th SHEFFIELD, City Hall
16th LONDON, Royal Albert Hall

Tickets for the Reorchestrated tour go on sale on Friday 15th December via bastillebastille.com.
