Bastille will kick off their "Wild, Wild World Tour" on March 24, 2017 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON. The extensive run will take the GRAMMY®-nominated U.K. band to arenas and theatres across the U.S. and Canada, including a March 30 show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
The band is touring in support of its sophomore album, "Wild World" (Virgin Records), which debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 and spent two weeks at No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart. Available HERE, Wild World is the follow-up to 2013's Bad Blood, which also debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart. Bad Blood has sold more than four million albums worldwide alongside 11 million singles.
"Good Grief," the first single from Wild World, has more than 39 million streams globally on Spotify to date, including seven million in the U.S. alone. In the U.K., the track reached No. 1 on Apple Music's Hot Tracks chart and the Shazam chart.
Dan Smith started Bastille alone in his bedroom five years ago, releasing 300 copies of debut single "Flaws/Icarus." Joined by Chris Wood (drums), Will Farquarson (guitar) and Kyle Simmons (keyboards), the band line-up was complete. Bastille's debut album, Bad Blood, contained the 5x Platinum single "Pompeii" and the Gold-certified tracks "Bad Blood" and "Flaws." "Pompeii" topped Billboard's Alternative Songs, Hot Rock Songs, Adult Alternative Songs and Dance Club Songs charts.
