Glass Animals Add Another Date To Sold Out UK Tour

With most of the dates on their tour in November 2020 now sold out, including rescheduled shows at London’s Alexandra Palace and Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse, a new date has been added to the tour at o2 Academy in Sheffield.

Being the first opportunity for the band to play their acclaimed new album ‘Dreamland’ to their devoted fanbase, the tour is set to be a mind-bending experience.

The band’s single ‘Heat Waves’ also continues to grow on a global scale, showing no signs of stopping, holding the #1 spot in Australia’s singles chart for a second consecutive week and #35 in Spotify Global Top 50.

2020 was a whirlwind for Glass Animals – the UK’s truly original and hugely loved band who confidently set out their stall for their fervently anticipated third album with first single ‘Your Love (Déjà vu)’ in February, then set off on an impressive run of tour dates to celebrate the new music, when the trip was brought to an abrupt halt along with the rest of the world in March.

However, being the uniquely creative band that they are, the band quickly conjured up new ways to connect with their international fanbase and bring some distraction and innovation in difficult times. They released a series of ingenious covers, built their own Open-Source website, created their very own TV network, made some jaw-droppingly inventive music videos and teamed up with huge YouTuber (2.1M subscribers) LoverFella to build a Dreamland base and surprise a fan on Minecraft – all while, crucially, inviting people into the enchanted world of ‘Dreamland’.

The Sheffield o2 Academy date is Sunday 21st November.

Tickets go on sale 9am Friday 9th April and will be available from http://gigst.rs/GlassAnimals
