First Aid Kit and The Staves are set to make a dream-pop dream come true with their new tour
First Aid Kit have announced their Rebel Heart tour and they are taking the amazing acapella sisters, The Staves on the road with them. Is there likely to be a better round of live shows this year? We doubt it!
The tour kicks off in Belfast on 22nd of October and takes in dates all over the UK including shows in Glasgow, Brighton and Cardiff.
First Aid Kit have announced their 2018 UK Rebel Heart headline tour. Kicking off on October 22 at The Telegraph Building in Belfast, the tour includes a date at London’s Brixton Academy on October 31.
The Swedish sisters will be joined by UK sister trio The Staves. Speaking about the tour Klara and Johanna said, "we're thrilled to announce our Rebel Heart Tour in the fall. We'll be returning to our beloved UK for our biggest tour there to date. With us on the road we'll have the incredible sister trio The Staves. We've been friends and mutual fans for years and finally we get to tour together. We can't wait to get your rebel hearts beating with us!"
The Staves were equally as thrilled, saying, "we met Johanna and Klara backstage at Glastonbury just before singing together with Mumford & Sons for their finale back in 2013, and since then we’ve met in many different dressing rooms in cities and countries across the world. Now we’ve finally managed to fulfil our dream of touring with another band of SISTERS! Gigging is always great, but when it’s with a band you admire and people you love and folks you can harmonise with, it’s the best. We can’t wait to see you out there on the road.”
