Broken Social Scene Announce European Tour Dates

Canadian rock collective and champions of the alternative Broken Social Scene have revealed a series of European tour dates, taking place during May-June 2017.

Currently putting together their forthcoming album, the 2002-formed band have announced plans to grace the likes of the UK, Amsterdam and Paris later this year. The dates follow the band’s raucous return to the live stage at both End Of The Road and Festival No. 6 last summer.

Of the Toronto group’s End Of The Road 2016 performance, The Guardian stated they were: “Bruised, beautiful and chaotically epic, Broken Social Scene are huge, in both numbers and sound.” NME, however, focused on frontman Kevin Drew’s likeness to a charismatic preacher – something ticket-holders can expect to experience first hand this year.

The announced May/June tour will see Broken Social Scene only performing at two UK venues: Manchester’s Albert Hall and London’s Brixton Academy before travelling on to Immergut Festival in Neustrelitz, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Paris and finishing up at Barcelona’s Primavera Festival.

Tickets for Broken Social Scene’s shows in Manchester, London, Antwerp and Amsterdam are available for purchase at 9am Friday 24 February, while tickets for their Paris date are accessible now, via the bands official website.

Tuesday 23 – Manchester, Albert Hall
Wednesday 24 – London, Brixton Academy
Friday 26 – Neustrelitz, Immergut Festival
Sunday 28 – Antwerp, Trix
Monday 29 – Amsterdam, Paradiso
