Rock duo Royal Blood announce arena tour - here's how to get tickets

Rock duo Royal Blood have announced a new tour to coincide with their new album – including a date in Nottingham.

Tuesday, 27th April 2021, 11:59 am

The band – Mike Kerr on vocals and bass and drummer Ben Thatcher – shot to fame with their eponymous debut album, which topped the charts on its release in 2014 and featured UK rock chart number-one singles Out of the Black and Little Monster.

Follow-up album How Did We Get So Dark? also topped the charts on its release in 2017, with the band having high-hopes for a hat-trick with the release of their third long-player, Typhoons, on April 30 – the title single has already reached number two in the UK rock chart.

And now, to coincide with the album’s release, they have announced a huge 2022 UK arena tour, including a date at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday, March 29, – their first full UK tour since 2017, when they sold-out three consecutive nights at London’s Alexandra Palace.
