SKINDRED ANNOUNCE OPENING ACTS FOR UPCOMING UK HEADLINE TOUR & WEMBLEY ARENA18th September 2023
Fresh from the massive success of their hit album Smile – which entered the official UK album chart at no.2 last month – Skindred’s upcoming UK headline tour is now almost completely sold out, with just a handful of tickets remaining for Newcastle and Belfast.
With Black Gold already announced as the main support for the tour, with the exception of the two shows in Ireland where Raging Speedhorn will take their place, Skindred has just announced that they will have a variety of the best upcoming bands in rock and metal opening their shows.
Skindred drummer Arya Goggin Said “Skindred is always about supporting the next wave of exciting new artists coming through and on this tour we wanted to try and help shine a light on a few amazing new bands that we are excited about and that we think our fans will love too. We want to encourage people to come to our shows early and to get into the party atmosphere and to enjoy the likes of Lake Malice, Cody Frost , Graphic Nature, Saint Agnes, Archives and Idle Discourse. With of course main support Blackgold too.”
Tickets for all shows are already Sold Out with the exception of Newcastle and Belfast which both have a limited amount of tickets left and are similarly expected to sell out soon.
Skindred has also announced the addition of the brilliant new alternative metal band As Everything Unfolds to their London Wembley OVO Arena show on March 15th 2024 too.
Regarding headlining Wembley Arena for the first time, singer Benji Webbe commented: “Standing on that stage is a mark of sheer hard work. We have stood upon that stage supporting many truly great acts. Now it’s Skindred’s time to take the headline slot.
You may think you’ve seen us, however, this is our opportunity to rise, and to step up like never before! My Sound we come to take over and truly come to rock Wembley with a heart full of gratitude and a set full of the most rockin’ tunes that we have ever played live. Unity, love and togetherness. Let’s ‘ave it. Quadruple XL.”
