Yungblud just never stops. Least of all in the lead-up to his hotly anticipated sophomore album! Not even a world pandemic can slow down our favourite Doncaster wild card, and he’s just pulled even more out of the bag by announcing a world tour. That’s right, a world tour – virtual, obviously, but he’s taking the show to London, Manchester, Glasgow, and Dublin as well as a host of offshore dates. It’ll be a personal experience each night, so whether you’re in the north of England or the sunny Sydney sands, you’ll get your Yungblud fill.
The tour news supports Yungblud’s upcoming album Weird!, a glorious cross-genre treatise on what it’s like to be Dom in this strange and scary world. From brit-bubblegum anthem Weird! to the raucous punk of Strawberry Lipstick, from the sultry Lemonade to the simply huge god save me, but don’t drown me out, there’s treats from across the board in store.
As with all great tours, there’s a killer selection of supports. Bittersweet favourites Wargasm make a fierce appearance; down at the other end of the spectrum is the delightful Baby Queen with her simultaneously down-to-earth and off-in-space pop magic; and finally, we’ve got the transcendental Royal and the Serpent to haunt us all.
It’s not promised yet what kind of setlist Yungblud will be playing, whether it’ll be sneak peeks at new stuff or a greatest hits bill packed with our favourites (probably both!). But what is absolutely guaranteed is that you’ll be able to feel the energy right through your screen – Yungblud has never failed to deliver a complete riot of a set whether he’s on the mainstage at a festival, in a sweaty basement, or somewhere hundreds of miles away in front of a camera, and the Weird Time Of Life tour is sure to be no different. As we navigate our own weird times of life, we need something to rely on – let it be Yungblud.
UK presale is available tomorrow if you preorder Weird! here, and tickets go on general sale on Friday here.
