Tickets for the in-demand concert go on general sale at 9am this Friday, August 21.
Dublin post-punk rockers Fontaines D.C. have announced a second Dublin show for Spring 2021 due to huge demand.
The band are now set to double up at the Iveagh Gardens in their hometown on Saturday, July 3 and Sunday, July 4.
The performances will follow an extensive UK tour, which kicks off at Edinburgh's Corn Exchange on May 1 and concludes at Alexandra Palace in London on May 27, with tickets on-sale now.
The tour is scheduled to support the release of their sophomore album, A Hero's Death, which was released at the of July and has achieved both critical acclaim and commercial chart success.
Will Russell of Hot Press offered the album high praise in his recent review:
"The fact that they executed album No.2 with such conviction, despite the mania surrounding them is remarkable. A masterclass," he wrote.
"It is an album that recklessly tears down the sheltering sky. It hacks the televised minds of a soul-sucked citizenry fed on a vomit of advertising platitudes. Reminiscent of The Clash, Fontaines D.C. have planted a defiant flag around which to rally. 'I was not born into this world, to do another man’s bidding,” sings Chatten, nor does he “want to belong to anyone'."
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Dublin band were forced to reschedule their Iveagh Gardens hometown show to July 3, 2021, while their upcoming dates in Cork and Belfast have been cancelled.
All tickets remain valid for the new Dublin date and refunds for Cork and Belfast will be issued from the point of sale.
