Bastille Makes Fall Plans

Oh, be still my heart! Bastille has announced another road trip through the States. Currently playing the U.S. on its spring tour, the act will return to our shores in October.

The British synthpop/indie rock band is continuing to support its debut, 2013’s Bad Blood. Earlier this year the LP was reissued in the U.S. as All This Bad Blood, a double album featuring B-sides, tunes from the group’s two mixtapes and a few new tracks.

 More fans will get the chance to see Bastille this fall because it’s moving up to bigger venues. Rather than taking the stage at rooms like the 2,100-capacity House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., where the band will be Friday night, this fall the guys are playing the 4,500-capacity Aragon Ballroom in Chicago and the 8,000-capacity Agganis Arena in Boston.

Bastille has also lined up gigs at Canada’s two largest indoor arenas – the 19,800-capacity Air Canada Centre in Toronto and the 21,500-capacity Bell Centre in Montreal.

Here’s the itinerary:

Oct. 11 – Fairfax, Va., Patriot Center          
Oct. 13 – Boston, Mass., Agganis Arena     
Oct. 14 – Montreal, Quebec, Bell Centre     
Oct. 15 – Toronto, Ontario, Air Canada Centre       
Oct. 17 – Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S. Bank Arena          
Oct. 19 – Saint Paul, Minn., The Roy Wilkins Auditorium  
Oct. 21 – Chicago, Ill., Aragon Ballroom     
Oct. 23 – Detroit, Mich., Masonic Temple Theatre       
Oct. 24 – Rochester, N.Y., Main Street Armory

Fans who’ve signed up for Bastille’s North American mailing list or made a purchase through the U.S. online store will get first dibs on tickets during a presale that begins Wednesday, May 14 and Thursday, May 15.

The general public onsale for most dates begins Friday, May 16. Toronto’s onsale is scheduled May 23.
