Last August The Maccabees split, much to the dismay of the musical community. This followed a brilliant 12 month period where the band scaled new heights; headlining Latitude Festival and getting their first number one album with the acclaimed ‘Marks To Prove It’.
Now we have the chance to bid this much loved band a proper farewell with two must see nights at London’s Alexandra Palace and one show at the Manchester Apollo next summer. Without doubt, these shows will be one of the highlights of 2017.
Felix White says, “We’re planning on these final shows being a huge celebration, thank you and goodbye to 14 years of writing, recording, playing and touring together.”
Tickets for the Live For The Last Time: The Farewell Shows will go on general sale at 9am on Fri 9 December.
Wed 28 June 2017 – MANCHESTER O2 Apollo
Fri 30 June 2017 – LONDON Alexandra Palace
Sat 01 July 2017 – LONDON Alexandra Palace
The Maccabees made four seminal albums: ‘Colour It In’ (2007), ‘Wall of Arms’ (2009), ‘Given To Wild’ (2012) and ‘Marks To Prove It’ (2015).
The Maccabees are: Orlando Weeks – vocals, Hugo White – guitar, Felix White – guitar, Rupert Jarvis – bass and Sam Doyle – drums.
