Oh blimey. Meet Me In St Louis are back for their first UK dates in 8 years. Yes. You read that right. It’s happening.
After a really-bloody-long hiatus, the much missed quintet are back for two shows this June.
Described as “the first (and possibly last) opportunity many fans will have to witness the band performing material from their seminal debut album ‘Variations on Swing’”, they’ll play Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on Friday June 17th then London’s The Dome a day later.
Drummer Paul Phillips says: “The planets have aligned and for the first time getting together to play these songs feels right. This opportunity may not come along again so we owe it to ourselves in this one life we have to do it, and do it to the best of our ability, and have a fucking good time in the process.”
The dates, on sale from Friday at 9am, read:
Friday June 17th : Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
33 Queen’s Rd, Leeds LS6 1NY
£12 adv – 7:00pm – 14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult)
Saturday June 18th : The Dome, London
2A Dartmouth Park Hill, London NW5 1HL
£14 adv – 7:30pm – 14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult)
Meet Me In St Louis formed in Guildford in 2005 and quickly gained a live reputation. They released one album – the afore mentioned ‘Variations on Swing’, via Big Scary Monsters. In the time they’ve been away, they’ve only gained in influence. Now they’re coming back as kings of the UK underground. Probably riding massive horses with crowns bigger than a large watermelon.
We know. We’re excited. We get a bit silly when we’re excited.
