Ireland’s Finest Announce May 2021 Tour

The 13 date tour see’s them play their biggest gig yet 

2020 has been written off for gigs, so band’s are now looking towards making next year the year when things come back with a bang, and with this announcement from Fontaines DC, we know that 2021 is going to be one hell of a year. As a gesture to key workers, and NHS staff, there are 50 free tickets for each regional date to give away to those who have been on the frontline of the fight against Coronavirus. In addition to the 50 free tickets, a further 200 tickets for London’s Alexandra Palace will be available, again these are for NHS and Key Workers. Tickets will be distributed on a first come first served basis, and anyone wishing to apply must email [email protected] by 17:00pm BST on Tuesday 30th June, listing their profession and the show they want to attend. Tickets will be limited to 2 per customer. ID will be required.

During lockdown, the band appeared remotely on ‘Jools Holland’, and delivered a brilliant performance of  “A Hero’s Death”

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday 3rd July (9AM), but fans who preorder their upcoming album will gain access to pre-sale tickets on Wednesday 1st July (9AM). Dates for the tour are as follows, and the support is yet to be announced;
