Indie-rockers The Subways have announced new dates for the March UK gigs which had to be rescheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The band were part way through a run of shows celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut album Young For Eternity when the pandemic took hold, prompting the postponement of live music across the world.

Frontman Billy Lunn posted a video on the band’s YouTube page today where he said: “Given the seriousness of the risk of Covid-19 we postponed for very good reason our Young For Eternity 15th anniversary tour, which we were all so unbelievably excited about.

“It really didn’t help that the first three dates of the UK jaunt in Newcastle, Glasgow and Manchester were so incredibly special.

“Having to cut short the tour after these performances, during which we felt such a profound reconnection with our audience – having been away for a few years whilst I was at uni and also writing the upcoming new album – was actually pretty painful.

“Being back playing these songs from Young For Eternity was such pure bliss, but we’re adamant we’re going to bring it back to the stage for those who want it, and with that in mind we’ve rescheduled the tour for later this year, in September and October.”

All tickets purchased for the original dates remain valid and new tickets are on sale.  Customers are advised to retain their tickets and ticket confirmations at this time.
