Bastille’s October 9 show at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall quickly sold out, so a second show has been added on October 10. The October 15 concert at Air Canada Centre in Toronto is nearly sold out and additional tickets are being made available for this night due to high demand.Special guest Grizfolk will open on all October dates and Ella Eyre will support in November. Bastille will wrap up the outing on November 20 at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles in an evening that will feature opening sets from both Grizfolk and Ella Eyre. See below for itinerary.

 

Bastille has been touring non-stop in support of its debut album, Bad Blood, which entered the U.K. albums chart at No. 1 and has sold more than 900,000 units in the U.S. The band’s breakthrough hit “Pompeii” has now been certified four times Platinum by the RIAA in the U.S. It is certified Platinum (or multi-Platinum) in a total of seven countries, including the U.K., Australia, Canada and Italy. “Pompeii” is the most-streamed track of all time in the U.K. and one of the most-streamed tracks of 2014 on Spotify. The track has ruled at radio, topping Billboard’s Alternative Songs, Hot Rock Songs and Adult Alternative Songs charts and entering the Top 5 at the Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Top 40 formats. The official video has more than 125 million views.
