The xx announce European tour dates

The British band is set to make their long awaited live return ahead of the release of their heavily anticipated second album.

Back in November, famous and wonderful band The xx posted a short message on their blog saying they were working on the follow-up for their Mercury Prize-winning 2009 album ‘xx’.

It’s been over two years since the release of their debut album, and since then there have been few chances to witness one of their live performances.

However, today The xx announced that they will play three intimate London shows (for which tickets will be allocated with a special lottery) and an exciting list of European dates, in addition to the already confirmed Bestival appearance.
