Fresh from their triumphant headline performances at the BBC Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds, WOLF ALICE have announced their final shows of 2018, celebrating their second album VISIONS OF A LIFE at the Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse and London O2 Brixton Academy. Since the album’s release, which debuted at #2 in the UK charts, the band have toured throughout the world, including a sold-out London Alexandra Palace, stadium supports with Foo Fighters, Liam Gallagher and Queens of The Stone Age, and festivals including NYC Governors Ball, Lollapalooza and Tokyo Summer Sonic.
Speaking about these new shows, singer Ellie Rowsell said: “The reception to Visions of a Life has been extremely humbling and with an itch to write new stuff, we will be rounding off the campaign with a big hurrah and party at Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse and London Brixton Academy”.
