IDLES have announced a homecoming outdoor headline show, set to take place on The Downs in Bristol on 3rd September 2021. The one-off event, organised by Team Love and Simple Things, will be IDLES‘ first outdoor headline show in Bristol. The rest of the line-up is yet-to-be-announced.
“It’s an amazing feeling to announce the IDLES homecoming show for September this year,” says Dave Harvey from Team Love and Simple Things. “We have been huge fans of the band for years and have watched them grow from playing very early on the bill in small venues for Simple Things to becoming one of the world’s biggest and most important rock bands. There simply isn’t a venue in Bristol now who can hold all the people that would want to see them, so we found an outdoor venue instead!
“It feels all the more important to put on a show with them now, we really feel like this is the light at the end of the tunnel for all of us, to be able to be back standing in the audience watching one of Bristol’s best bands play their number one album live for one of the very first times in front of their hometown fans. It’s going to feel really special.”
Tickets for the show are priced at £39.50 (plus booking fee) and £45 (plus booking fee). Pre-sale tickets are available now through the sign-up link HERE, with general tickets on sale on 2nd April 2021 at 9am BST. Please note: the show is open to all ages, but under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
