Bastille coming to Plymouth Pavilions in 2014

Alt-pop combo Bastille will visit Plymouth Pavilions in 2014 as part of their biggest UK tour to date.

Following the success of the sold-out Bad Blood Tour earlier this year and in response to overwhelming demand for their autumn tour which sold out in a day, Bastille have announced a 2014 UK tour.

The band have had a packed summer seeing them on some of the biggest stages on the festival circuit, including performances at Radio 1 Big Weekend, T in the Park, Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, and headlining stages at Wakestock, Blissfields and Standon Calling.

First formed in 2010, Bastille began as a solo project by singer-songwriter Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band.

The four-piece consists of members Dan Smith, Chris ‘Woody’ Wood, Will Farquarson and Kyle Simmons.

The name of the band derives from Bastille Day – an event celebrated on Smith’s birthday, July 14.

In February this year, ahead of the release of their debut album, Bad Blood, the band’s fourth single, Pompeii, was released to huge demand, charting at number two.

Bad Blood was released in March and debuted at number one in the UK Albums Chart.

It’s gone on to become the biggest-selling debut album of the year with nearly platinum sales and one of the top ten biggest-selling albums of the year.

Having conquered the UK, Bastille are now set to storm America with Pompeii being released Stateside and a string of headline shows planned.

Bastille hit Plymouth Pavilions on March 3, 2014. Tickets go on sale at 9am on August 30, 2013.
