The War On Drugs at O2 Apollo, Manchester 13 November 2017 Tickets from £25.00 — Book now

Philadelphia’s The War On Drugs stop off at the Apollo for two dates during a mammoth two-month tour. The psychedelic six-piece are touring A Deeper Understanding – their acclaimed fourth album, and first since 2014.

Established in 2005 by singer and guitarist Adam Granduciel and Kurt Vile – who left in 2008 to pursue a solo career – the group broke through to the mainstream with last album Lost in the Dream, which made the Top 20 on its release in 2014, significantly elevating the band’s profile in the process.

A Deeper Understanding is The War On Drugs’ first ‘band record’ – featuring a now-fixed membership alongside Granduciel. This time, the record peaked at #3 in the charts, while also reaching the Top 10 in their native US.

The band’s growing popularity is further evidenced by these back-to-back dates at one of Manchester’s largest venues – with only balcony tickets remaining for the first date.
