Beginning next September, the tour will comprise four major gigs across the UK, including a performance at London’s iconic Alexandra Palace on 28 September. The first show is slated for Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on 25 September, followed by a stop at the Wolverhampton Civic on 27 September. The tour will conclude at The Apollo in Manchester on 30 September.
Tickets for the general public will be available from Friday, 13 October (tickets available here), with a pre-sale on 11 October for those who sign up for the band’s newsletter (which you can do here).
Although The The has been a revolving ensemble around founder and sole permanent member Matt Johnson, the 2024 shows promise to feature a cast from various periods of the band’s history. While details are currently limited to UK shows, the band has assured fans that a global ‘Ensouled’ world tour will be announced soon.
The 2018 ‘Comeback Special’ tour was a significant milestone for the group, marking their first live performances in 16 years. It was later immortalised in a multi-format project featuring a live album, film, and book documenting their 2018 Royal Albert Hall concert.
