French behemoths GOJIRA have answered fan demands, confirming a headline tour of the UK in March 2017. The band have just performed to some of their biggest UK audiences to date, supporting rock titans Alter Bridge on their recent arena run.
Described by The Independent then as “absolutely transcendent… challenging, visceral, spectacular, life-affirming, and unique“, on the prospect of a headline tour they continued, “…if you have any interest what-so-ever in seeing one of the best live bands on the planet, it is absolutely essential that you are there.”
Dates rack up as follows:
Sun 12th Mar – LONDON O2 Forum
Tue 14th Mar – MANCHESTER Academy
Wed 15th Mar – NEWCASTLE O2 Academy
Thu 16th Mar – LEEDS O2 Academy
Fri 17th Mar – GLASGOW O2 ABC
Sat 18th Mar – BRISTOL O2 Academy
Support acts will be announced in due course. O2’s ticket pre-sale starts 12pm Saturday 3rd Dec, with tickets on general sale from 12pm Monday 5th Dec, via www.livenation.co.uk and all good box offices.
