TOUR NEWS: The Slow Readers Club March/April 2019 UK Tour, festival dates


THE SLOW READERS CLUB have announced their huge UK headline tour starting in March.

Coming hot on the heels of their sold-out headline gigs in December – which saw them play the biggest shows of their career so far – the band will be playing 16 dates across Europe ahead of their shows at Bearded Theory Festival in Derbyshire, Neighbourhood Weekender in Warrington and Mad Cool festival in Madrid. Tickets will be available on Friday at 9am.

“We’ve had plenty of fans making contact asking us to play all over Europe so it’s great to finally be able to do so,” says singer Aaron Starkie. “We had a great response at a few European festivals last year (Reeperbahn, Kaltern pop and Haldern pop) and think there will be a lot of people out there that would be into us.”

2018 saw a huge rise for the band, with their album Build A Tower going straight into the Official UK album chart Top 20, with extensive radio support from the likes of 6Music and Radio X. Closing the year, the band played three huge headline shows at London’s Scala, Glasgow’s School Of Art and a triumphant hometown show at Manchester’s O2 Apollo, all of which were sold out.
