The The have announced their first live performances in sixteen years to take place next June in Denmark and London.
The band have confirmed that they will preform for the first time since their farewell at David Bowie‘s Meltdown Festival in 2002 with two dates next year.
The first is a headline appearance at the Heartland Festival in Denmark on June 1st and the other at the Royal Albert Hall on June 5th.
Accompanying this will be a brand new three-album box set from the band. The box set contains three albums, The End Of The Day (featuring songs, interpretations and performances), The Inertia Variations (featuring poetry, soundscapes and spoken word), and finally Midnight to Midnight (with electronic scores, political commentaries and broadcasts).
The return follows on from The The‘s first release in fifteen years on Record Store Day earlier this year with “We Can’t Stop What’s Coming“, featuring former The The guitarist Johnny Marr.
