The Wombats renaissance is firmly underway following the #5 UK chart position of their third album ‘Glitterbug’ which also hit #2 in Australia. Following their recent sold-out tour that included an O2 Brixton Academy date, the band have been confirmed as Festival Republic stage headliners at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, as well as a T in the Park appearance. Now the trio can now announce their biggest London show to date at Alexandra Palace.
The Alexandra Palace date is The Wombats’ first 10,000+ capacity headline show in the capital.
