BROCKHAMPTON, the self-declared favourite boyband of America, is crossing the pond for a European headline tour next spring, with a stop at Dublin's Olympia Theatre.
Today, America's Favourite Boyband BROCKHAMPTON announce their 2020 Headlining European tour. The tour will span the month of May with an Irish date in the Olympia Theatre on 25 May 25th.
The tour announcement follows the boyband's standout set at Longitude this summer, which featured, "a stellar performance from their Belfast vocalist Ciarán 'Bearface' McDonald," according to Hot Press's Lucy O'Toole.
News of the European tour spread fast and was greeted enthusiastically online, with fellow hip hop artist, Kildare’s own Tebi Rex declaring their excitement.

The release of their fifth studio album, GINGER, this year was welcomed by fans and critics alike. The album follows their first major label album, iridescence, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop charts last year.
The band is currently wrapping up their biggest North American tour to date, including back-to-back sold-out shows in New York at Madison Square Garden's Hulu Theater alongside slowthai and 100 gecs.
BROCKHAMPTON is a 13-member, Los Angeles-based boyband comprised of vocalists, producers and visual artists. In 2017, the group released three albums, dubbed the SATURATION trilogy, in the span of six months, which helped propel them from the underground to the mainstream and saw them sign a landmark record deal with RCA Records.
GINGER is the next chapter of BROCKHAMPTON's rapid rise over the last two years and includes fan-favourite songs 'NO HALO', 'IF YOU PRAY RIGHT', 'I BEEN BORN AGAIN', and BOY BYE.'
Take a listen to GINGER, check out all upcoming live dates below, and stay tuned for more from BROCKHAMPTON coming soon.
