Bloc Party Announce 20th Anniversary Shows

Bloc Party have announced details of two Irish shows to mark their 20th anniversary in July.

The Kele Okereke-fronted outfit will perform their seminal debut album Silent Alarm and their greatest hits at the Telegraph Building in Belfast on Thursday, 4th July and 3Arena in Dublin on Friday, 5th July.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, 16th February at 10am.

In a statement, Okereke said: “We’ve been having so much fun playing shows over the past year, so it makes sense to do something special for old and new fans, celebrating twenty years of Bloc Party.”

“We heard from a lot of people that they couldn’t get tickets for the Silent Alarm gigs, so a one-off summer party playing that and the bangers feels like the right thing to do.”
