Blossoms have announced a FOURTH Manchester gig at the O2 Apollo due to overwhelming demand.

The band announced two dates at the venue last week, before quickly adding a third.  They have now confirmed details of a fourth gig in Manchester on their UK and Ireland tour.

The shows, which include four nights at Manchester’s O2 Apollo and one night at London’s O2 Academy Brixton are on sale now.

Blossoms originally announced that the tour would be 21 dates including the Manchester gigs and a Liverpool gig at Mountford Hall.

The announcement comes after Blossoms played a string of huge gigs over the summer including sets at Y Not?, Truck and Glastonbury.  The band have also been on the road with The Killers, supporting them on several of their UK stadium shows.

Blossoms’ recent UK number 1 album Ribbon Around The Bomb was centred around a character known as ‘The Writer’.  The album, their fourth studio album, was produced by frequent collaborators James Skelly and Rich Turvey.  The creative direction for the album and its videos was developed by Edwin Burdis, Arctic Monkeys’ Creative Director who worked with the band on their Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino and AM albums. Burdis also directed an accompanying film for Ribbon Around The Bomb which featured performances from the band and premiered at Stockport Plaza around the album’s release in April.
