A pretty big venue for a band that feel like they've been around for all of five minutes. Nothing short of huge for the newcomers. (this article contains affiliate links)
Rising stars The Last Dinner Party have announced a brand-new headline tour around the UK and Ireland in support of their debut album, including a truly massive Manchester gig.
One of the biggest up-and-coming names in the music world, having secured multiple festival slots and made their TV debuts on the likes of The Late Show and Graham Norton, The Last Dinner Party haven’t even put an album out yet but once they do, they’ll be embarking on their biggest run of shows to date.
With their debut record, Prelude To Ecstasy, set to release on Friday, 2 February, their rapidly growing fan base are already gagging to hear more and the album title will no doubt have lived up to its name as the band confirmed they will be playing a 16-date tour from late September to mid-October.
The London-based five-piece made sure to get Manchester on the list too, of course, scoring a gig at one of the city’s biggest and best venues: the legendary O2 Victoria Warehouse.
Charting with their hugely popular single ‘Nothing Matters’ and even working their way onto this year’s FIFA soundtrack (a huge honour in its own right, even if they have changed the name), the indie rockers are quickly becoming one of the most talked about artists going.
Having also won BBC Radio 1’s Sound Of 2024 award, it’s actually little surprise they’ve already managed to earn themselves a spot at the 2,500+ venue and former Warehouse Project base.
The all-female and non-binary British lineup actually began back in 2021 but they only only started releasing music in April of 2023.
Safe to say it’s been a whirlwind journey for them in less than a year on our radars. You can hear their latest single, ‘Caesar on a TV Screen’, here:
- ‘We ran out of road’ – Manchester’s hidden late-night piano bar Sonata announces closure
- Gary Neville to perform back-to-back DJ set with Tim Burgess at Kendal Calling 2024
- Liam Gallagher and John Squire reveal album release date and debut tour dates
Set to play Victoria Warehouse on Friday, 11 October, you can well and truly expect the Manc crowd to be well and truly up for it after months of getting their teeth stuck into the upcoming 13-track album.
Tickets for their gig here in Manchester go live on Friday, 9 February at 8am and we sincerely advise you to jump on them as quickly as possible as the buzz around this lot is so big that they’re going to absolutely fly.
