American Football / September 2017 UK/Irish Tour

By on Tuesday, 21st February 2017 at 9:00 am

American comeback band American Football have announced a short list of UK and Irish live dates for later this year, on the success of their second self-titled album ‘American Football (LP2)’.  The band broke up almost immediately after releasing their self-titled debut LP on Polyvinyl in 1999, but Polyvinyl was also instrumental in American Football’s recent re-emergence. Following a deluxe edition re-release of their debut album, American Football played a series of well-received live shows in their hometown of Champaign, Illinois and in New York City. Seventeen years on from their first album, American Football dropped their sophomore full-length release last October, also on Polyvinyl. You can sample the understated semtimentality of album track ‘Desire Gets in the Way’ just below the tour date listing.

Tickets for the following shows are available now. You can find a complete listing of American Football’s upcoming live dates on their official Facebook.

Friday 1st September 2017 – Brighton Concorde 2
Saturday 2nd September 2017 – Manchester Albert Hall
Sunday 3rd September 2017 – Edinburgh Summerhall
Monday 4th September 2017 – Dublin Button Factory
