Glass Animals ‘Tour of Earth’ for UK November gigs

Today, Human Music Group Sensations Glass Animals announced their 2024 global Tour of Earth.

Promoted by Live Nation, the 41-date tour sees the band headlining the biggest venues of their career with stops across North America, Europe, and the UK. The Diamond-selling British band will be joined by The Big Moon on all dates across Europe and the UK.

The tour will see the band playing many iconic venues around the world for the first time, including Madison Square Garden in New York, Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, The Gorge Amphitheatre in Seattle, Kia Forum in Inglewood, 3Arena in Dublin, The O2 in London.

Yesterday, Glass Animals announced details of their highly anticipated fourth studio album, I Love You So F***ing Much, set for release on July 19th. The album is introduced by the band’s new single, “Creatures in Heaven”.

I Love You So F***ing Much is the follow-up to 2020’s critically revered Dreamland, which sold over 12 million copies globally and gave life to “Heat Waves,” the record-breaking song that became the biggest international hit from a British band in almost 30 years.

It was the first song by a British band since the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” in 1995 to claim #1 for five consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, and the first song to reach #1 with a single writer and producer since Pharell’s “Happy” —leading to the pop world’s biggest acts, including Florence Welch, all wanting to work with Glass Animals frontman, songwriter, and producer, Dave Bayley. But the birth of I Love You So F***ing Much was an existential crisis. Dave found himself struggling to make sense of this newfound global stardom, having watched it all happen while the world was in lockdown.

Dave Bayley:

“Life can change dramatically, but sometimes you aren’t able to change as quickly on a personal level. You end up feeling like a spectator. And then you are asked and expected to be a certain type of person, a different person. But…I wasn’t sure how. It confused me to the point of not knowing who I was or if anything was real.”

It took being stranded on a cliff in a wooden house on stilts during one of California’s biggest storms in history to push that feeling into a full existential crisis. In forced isolation, watching trees tumble down mountains and assuming “death was coming,” Dave began asking questions of himself, of the universe, and of the human experience: namely, love. As he came to accept himself as an introvert, Dave realized that “human connection and the love between us is much bigger, more important, and more complex than anything else”. “Creatures in Heaven” is the sublime first glimpse into ten intimate love stories set against the backdrop of the universe.

Europe and UK, tickets will be available starting with a Glass Animals Album Pre-Order Presale beginning Tuesday 9th April at 10 AM local time. Visit glassanimals.com. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general onsale beginning Thursday 11th April at 10 AM.
