The Music Announce Farewell Shows / August 2011 English Tour

By on Wednesday, 13th April 2011 at 9:00 am

After starting as a band in high school, 3 albums and over a decade in the business, the Music have decided to play their final shows together ever this summer before going their separate ways. The band had this to say on their official Web site:

We’ve come so far together and now it’s time to end things the right way and in the place we love the most – onstage playing live. We’re going to give it our all for these last times together and it’s going to be emotional, but were really glad to get back to Japan one last time where people have been so good to us over the years, and we send our love and thoughts to everyone there who has been affected by the terrible events of March 11th. We’ll be saying thankyou [sic] to so many people over these dates and we’ll start now by saying thanks to anyone who’s been with us on this incredible trip. We’re all looking to the future and what comes next, but we’ll always be grateful for the years, times and experiences we’ve shared. We’re going to make these shows as much of a party as we can, and we hope people turn up to celebrate with us.

Tickets are on sale now.

Thursday 4th August 2011 – London Brixton Academy (upgraded from Shepherds Bush Empire)
Friday 5th August 2011 – Leeds Academy
Saturday 6th August 2011 – Leeds Academy
