Some of our favorite show memories have happened while IDLES are rocking – from lifting Lee as he crowd-surfs to watching Joe part the sea for a conscientious “Colossus” collision. We’re psyched to hear that the Bristol band will return for their first U.S. tour in nearly two years this fall, including a stop over at NYC’s Terminal 5 on Friday, October 15th. It will be extra cool to witness some in-person Ultra Mono – the supercharged #1-charting album that made 2020 considerably less sucky.
Artist presale begins today (Wednesday, April 28th) at 12pm ET and their tickets go quickly, so don’t miss out. Fans can access artist presale by signing up for the band’s mailing list. General sale begins this Friday, April 30th at 12pm ET. Openers Gustaf and Lithics will join IDLES throughout this run; check out the 2021 U.S. tour dates below. As you await the chance to grab your tickets today, check out our coverage of their last Terminal 5 show – a sold-out explosion of joy – and our interview with frontman Joe Talbot. “I think we just draw empathetic scumbags to the table,” he told us, “and it feels great, you know? I’m in love with it.”
