Royal Blood Announces Headlining U.S. Tour Dates for 2018
Royal Blood has announced their 2018 headlining tour dates in support of How Did We Get So Dark?, after spending this past fall on the road with Queens of the Stone Age.
The album that they described as "sexy" and "more confident" than their previous effort was released by Warner Bros. on June 16, and debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. charts, and sold more than 250,000 copies globally with more than 30 million streams. It's also produced a No. 1 single on the Rock Airplay chart, "Lights Out."
The duo will complete their next round of opening dates for Queens of the Stone Age on May 25, just before launching their own tour on May 28 in Brooklyn, N.Y. The U.S. run will finish in Richmond, Va., on June 15.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Dec. 8, at noon. You can see all tour dates below. The night prior, Royal Blood will perform their current single "I Only Lie When I Love You" on Conan.
"I feel like we are better at being in Royal Blood now," Mike Kerr, one half of the duo, said recently. "We started this band as a friendship so things like that come first. I think the reason we make good music together is because we are good friends."
