London Grammar to Tour North America This Fall
Buzzed-about band London Grammar have made a few trips stateside over the course of the past eighteen months, and now they’re coming back for a short jaunt, all in support of last year’s If You Wait. The band will run around Europe for the summer, playing festival dates at Electric Park and Bestival before landing on North American shores on November 7 for a show at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. From DC, the trio will head to Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY (at Terminal 5); Portland, ME; Boston, MA; Toronto, ON; Montreal, QC; Indianapolis, IN; and Portland, OR; among others. The tour will culminate in a show at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA on November 29. For more information about ticketing, visit the band’s website.
London Grammar is made up of Hannah Reid, Dot Major, and Dan Rothman. The band was formed during Reid and Rothman’s salad days as students at the University of Nottingham. Joined by Major soon after, the band began playing gigs at local bars. They picked up steam quickly on YouTube, where their video for “Hey Now” received over 1.5 million views. An LP, Metal & Dust, was released in February 2013, and their debut studio album hit the shelves in September of the same year.
