BASTILLE Kicks Off North American Tour Tonight at The Met in Philadelphia

Bastille will kick off its North American headline tour tonight at The Met in Philadelphia. The extensive run will include shows at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City (September 24) and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (October 12). See below for itinerary. Tickets are on sale HERE. Bastille will perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, September 25.

The GRAMMY®-nominated, Brit-winning band is touring in support of its new album, Doom Days (Virgin Records), available everywhere. Bastille launched the album a show in New York City’s Central Park as part of ABC’s “Good Morning America” Summer Concert series. Check out their performance of the single “Joy” HERE. Last month, fans around the world were awestruck when front man Dan Smith posted a video of himself singing “Flaws” on a giant roller coaster during a recent show at a Stockholm amusement park. View the clip HERE.

Doom Days takes listeners on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Album Sales chart and in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200. In a four-star review, NME said, ‘Doom Days’ is a vivid snapshot of humanity and an imaginative, adventurous levelling up from one of Britain’s most influential bands. If the end times are coming, you could do a whole lot worse than taking its lead and gathering up all your friends, pressing play and partying like it’s 1999.” “Joy” has amassed more than 70 million combined streams globally while lead single “Quarter Past Midnight” is Bastille’s third single to hit No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative chart.

Smith performed a stripped-down version of the track “Bad Decisions,” accompanying himself on piano, as part of Rolling Stone’s “How I Wrote This” series. View the interview and performance HERE.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “Britpop’s new crown princes,” Bastille has sold over eight million adjusted albums and amassed more than 11 billion cumulative streams globally. The band was introduced internationally with the single “Pompeii,” which is now 6x Platinum in the U.S. alone. Marshmello and Bastille’s hit single, “Happier,” has topped charts around the world, with cumulative streams exceeding 3.5 billion. It is certified 5x Platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than 15 million units in the rest of the world. “Happier” held the No. 1 position for three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s BDS and Media base/Top 40 Radio Airplay chart. It has spent 50 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic songs tally.
