The English indie-rock band will play their first Irish shows in six years this August.
After a five-year hiatus, English indie-rock group Bombay Bicycle Club took to social media in January to share a message with their fans, hinting at "new material" and "some shows for later this year and beyond."
The band have made good on that promise, and have now announced that they will play their first Irish shows in six years this summer. They are set to play Cork Opera House on Saturday, August 3. Tickets are €30.00 (subject to booking fee), and go on sale this Friday at 10am from Cork Opera House Box Office (+353 21 4270022) and Ticketmaster (0818 719300).
Bombay Bicycle Club have also taken to Twitter to announce that they are playing the highly anticipated festival All Together Now in Portlaw, Waterford, on August 4. They join an incredible line-up that already includes The National, Patti Smith, Jon Hopkins, Father John Misty, and more.
