PREVIEW: IDLES @ O2 Ritz, Manchester

A gig harder to tap into than uncovering the lost city of Atlantis – all eyes are on IDLES’ performance at Manchester’s O2 Ritz, tonight (Friday October 19).

IDLES is the band we need, yet do not wholeheartedly deserve.  They are too good for this world. 2018 has been a whirlwind of guitars, praise, star-studded festival performances and anthem after anthem for the Bristol-born band.

Being crowned by Gigslutz as one of the hardest-working bands on the circuit, IDLES’ current UK tour is arguably one of the most anticipated of the season.  Tonight, they take over Manchester’s city-centre O2 Ritz for a sold-out showcase of enigmatic energy, in aid of their latest record, Joy As An Act Of Resistance.  If you were lucky enough to snag yourself a ticket, then get down early for tour supports, Heavy Lungs.

Expect mayhem, debauchery and for your tiny mind to be blown.  All eyes on IDLES. 

Tickets for Manchester’s IDLES show are 100% sold-out.  Cop yourself a place on one of the bands’ remaining October UK tour dates here
