On a day when bands with monikers devoted to two wheels have tickets on sale (OK, two of them anyway), Crouch End's famous sons Bombay Bicycle Club are back on the road in the summer, no doubt spurred on by their impending Ibiza Rocks appearance in June - the lucky bleeders.
It's back to Blighty for the BBC in July with a tour that begins in Manchester (12th) carries on towards Bristol (14th), Birmingham (15th), Gateshead (16th), Norwich (20th), Brighton (21st) and finally the splendid Union Chapel on the 23rd. Tickets cost £13.50 - £15 and are on sale right now.
After winning the Road To V (Festival) competition in 2006, and playing the first slot at the damned thing, BBC has been busy plugging their debut album "I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose" - until now that is. The boys have decided to unplug and get acoustic for these dates AND for the upcoming album, released on the 12th July.
In their own words they explain, "We are going on a tour of some beautiful venues which don't smell of piss and serve piss for beer, so you should come and enjoy that". It certainly looks like the local clergy have their work cut out, judging by the venues chosen.
