Their Outdoor Headline Appearances Are Now Indoor Tour Dates
The tour now has 3 Manchester dates to replace their scheduled Castlefield Bowl appearance
With restrictions and logistics still causing some issues for bands, DMA’s have taken the decision to move their scheduled Summer tour to dates in the Autumn instead. Of course, this means that they miss out on their scheduled outdoor appearances, which includes their show at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl, Leeds Millennium Square and Edinburgh Princess Gardens. Instead of the outdoor dates, the band have now scheduled a fantastic run of indoor tour dates, including 3 dates in Manchester at O2 Victoria Warehouse. Ticket holders for those outdoor gigs will be contacted by their ticket agent with more information.
Alongside this, the band had two shows scheduled for Dublin in August, however these have now been moved to November. Tickets for the Newcastle Times Square show can be refunded or exchanged for Hit North North tickets which will take place in Newcastle on 23rd October 2021. Again, ticket holders will be contacted by their ticket agent to discuss the move.
Talking on the matter, the band have issued the following statement;
“We’re gutted that we aren’t able to come over and play the UK this summer. We’d been trying to make it work and were all ready to go, but the recent festival situation means it’s no longer feasible. We really appreciate some of you have been holding tickets for well over a year, and we hope you agree that rather than wait yet another year we move the summer headline shows onto our autumn tour and into some great indoor venues. This way we get to see you a whole lot sooner! Thank you for your patience and we can’t wait to get over in October.”
The tour schedule now looks like this:
18th & 19th – Edinburgh, Corn Exchange (rescheduled Princess Gardens show)
21st – Norwich, UEA
22nd – Hull, Bonus Arena
23rd – Newcastle, Hit The North Festival
25th – Southampton, O2 Guildhall
27th – Bath, Pavilion
29th – London, Alexandra Palace
30th – Liverpool, M&S Bank Arena
1st & 2nd & 3rd – Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse (rescheduled Castlefield Bowl show)
10th & 11th – Leeds, O2 Academy (rescheduled Millennium Square show)
13th & 14th – Dublin, The Academy (rescheduled)
The tour is set to be the biggest tour the band have done to date, with the combined audience of all 16 shows expected to be around 50,000. 10,000 of those are expected to come from the London date on 29th October! It is also going to be their first shows since the release of their third album, “The Glow”, which reached 4th in the UK Charts, and 2nd in their home country of Australia.
The run of dates will be the band’s first in the UK since March 2020, when they played the O2 Academy in Brixton. That gig was then documented in their top 20 album, ‘Live At Brixton’.
