This event has been and gone.
Bloc Party have announced they will play their seminal debut album Silent Alarm live and in full at four huge shows across the UK this summer, including three outdoor shows in Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow, alongside a date in Brighton. It will be the first time they have performed in the UK since a one-off show at London’s Alexandra Palace - which sold out in minutes - in October last year.
Reared on a diet of pop culture and good music, Bloc Party met through the small ads of the music press to create a band who went on to make the headlines. After a short hiatus in 2013, Kele Okereke returned refreshed in 2015 with a new line-up: original guitarist Russell Lissack joined by new recruits Justin Harris (bass) and Louise Bartle (drums) Ask them their influences, and they say they've been influenced by it all. Live, Bloc Party '...rip through new classics...like they've written them 20 minutes before the gig - the ferocity and adrenaline of youth shines through the angular rhythms and layers of effects.' (bbc.co.uk). They also play regular DJ slots up and down the country.
