U.K. band Bastille – introduced stateside last summer with intimate, sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ Troubadour and San Francisco’s Popscene – will be playing several arenas on its fall 2014 North American tour. In the past year, the band has completed three sold-out runs and scored a multi-format smash hit with its debut single, “Pompeii,” which has sold nearly three million downloads.

The band’s fall tour will kick-off on October 11 at the Patriot Center located just outside of Washington, D.C. The tour will also include shows at Canada’s two largest indoor arenas – Montreal’s Bell Centre (October 14) and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre (October 15) – and an evening at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati (October 17).

The store, which features exclusive fan bundles and more, is available at Tickets for the October dates will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, May 16. 

The band, which is currently on tour in the U.S., will perform on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on June 3. Bastille will play the Hangout Beach Music & Arts Festival (May 18), Boston Calling (May 25), the KROQ-LA Weenie Roast (May 31) and the Governors Ball Music Festival (June 6). Due to scheduling conflicts, the band’s May 30 show at the Madison Theater in Covington, KY has been rescheduled for October 17 at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. Ticket holders of the May 30th show may exchange their current ticket for a premium ticket for the new date prior to 10 p.m. on May 15. Otherwise, they may receive a refund at the point of purchase. Please note that tickets purchased at the Madison Theater box office must be exchanged or refunded at the U.S. Bank Arena box office.
