Back in October, we reported that The XX were due to go on a European tour. Following the release of new single Hold On last week (read our review here), my hopes for a UK tour announcement were increased.
Today, my hopes were met as they announced their UK dates. I for one cannot wait for this and will hopefully secure myself a ticket for the Nottingham leg in March. If you’re also going, I’ll see you there! And until then, Hold On and the new album due in January will see me through. Announcing these tour dates, the band cited:

We’ve been busy in the rehearsal room for the past few months, bringing our new songs to life. It’s been so much fun playing together as a band again and we’re getting ready to hit the road very soon!

Our European tour will start on February 8th 2017.
Pre-sale begins November 22nd at 10 AM GMT. Sign up to our email list to gain exclusive fan pre-sale access at
