The Wonder Years have announced a European tour for January and February 2017 which will see the band, who released their latest album No Closer To Heaven this year, perform at Manchester’s Ritz.

The band played a handful of intimate shows in the UK this summer, but this tour will be the first chance many fans have had to see the band headline since the release of the album.

The Wonder Years’ vocalist Dan “Soupy” Campbell elaborates “When we came to the UK in July to do small, intimate shows, we did it because we knew we wouldn’t be able to come back until around February. Those shows sold out in a matter of hours and we know that a lot of people were bummed they couldn’t get tickets but we told everyone to sit tight because we knew this run with PUP and Tiny Moving Parts was on the horizon. We’re going to bring the same energy we just brought in those tiny venues to these rooms with sets that span years of releases and a few tricks up our sleeves.”

The UK and Ireland tour listing:
28 January   –   Dublin, Workmans Club
29 January   –   Belfast, Empire
31 January   –   Leeds, Uni Stylus
1 February   –   London, Koko
3 February   –   Birmingham, O2 Institute
4 February   –   Glasgow, QMU
5 February   –   O2 Ritz

Tickets for The Wonder Years performing at Manchester’s O2 Ritz on 5 February 2017 go on sale at 9am on Friday 30 September.
