Friendly Fires Confirm 15th Anniversary Shows In Norwich And Hull For July

Tuesday, 14 February 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Friendly Fires have added two dates to their 15th year anniversary celebrations.

The St. Albans trio will head to Norwich's Waterfront on May 13 and Hull's Welly Club on May 19, following up their previously confirmed dates in Leeds and London later this month.

Each show will see the band commemorate their 2018 Mercury Prize-nominated self-titled debut album by performing it in full, with tickets for the new gigs on general sale at 10am on February 17. They said:

"Time is a flat circle, much like a CD or a record, and one such flat circle that completely reconfigured our lives has turned 15 this year.

"Friendly Fires only peaked at a modest #38 in the album chart, but momentum grew via the word-of-mouth of our small crew of proactive fans, and eventually we had a hit on our hands. So next year, we’re going to be getting out there and doing a special show to celebrate this, both for us and for the fans who made it a success.

"We’ll be blasting through the record in full along with a generous helping of other tunes, doubtless feeling a bit weepy and emotional throughout. It’ll be great to see the old gang, plus the newer heads who came on board (rimshot) later."

They released their second full-length, 'Pala', in 2011, and 'Inflorescent' in 2019. They'll also appear at Highest Point Festival and Get Together Festival in May, and Victorious Festival in August.

Friendly Fires Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Tue February 21 2023 - LEEDS Belgrave Music Hall
Fri February 24 2023 - LONDON HERE at Outernet
Sat May 13 2023 - NORWICH Waterfront
Fri May 19 2023 - HULL Welly Club
