Ever since, Brendon Urie and Patrick Stump's live web stream announcing plans to tour the US this fall together, both act have been the subject of many "COME TO ENGLAND", "Y U NO PLAY UK?" tweets/comments/sad Tumblr blogs (yes I'm guilty of writing the odd one here on Buzznet too). Well today the wishes of many fangirls have been granted (well partly) anyway as Panic! At The Disco have officially revealed a (much rumoured) UK tour for 2012. Can I get a yay please from the fellow Brits?
The dates are as follows:
Newcastle, O2 Academy (2000 capacity) - January 25 Leeds, O2 Academy (2300 capacity) - 26 Manchester, Academy (1800 capacity) - 27 Glasgow, Barrowlands (1900 capacity) - 28 Birmingham, O2 Academy (3000 capacity) - 29 Bristol, O2 Academy (1600 capacity) - 31 Southampton, Guildhall - (1750 capacity) - February 1 London, O2 Academy Brixton (almost 5000 capacity) - 2
But is Patrick Stump joining the duo? Probably not. Back in May P!ATD brought Love Letters along to their shows while Patrick Stump enjoyed a sell-out two day 'mini-residency' at Monto Water Rats with Lonsdale Boys Club and Proxies. But fear not, Patrick fans because he may do the same next year (but hopefully not clashing - and hopefully with more dates than last time). Or maybe, he'll play Gym Class Heroes or Cobra Starship as he did so the other night for KISS.FM - who knows?
All I know is that this UK tour is going to be snapped up quickly (with or without special guests) so make sure you put an alarm for this Friday (23rd September) for 9am so you can get buying those tickets!
For now here's the on tour video for "Let's Kill Tonight":
While at the Pomona stop of Warped Tour this year, Echosmith took some time to chat with us about being on the tour two years in a row, what new bands we should check out, their gratitude for signing to Warner Bros. Records, and what to expect from the band for the rest of the year. Watch the full video PV Q&A above.
