End of the European Festival Tour & Fifa Interview
End of the European Festival Tour & Fifa Interview avatar

Hello everyone,
yesterday the band played at Lollapalooza Berlin, marking the offical end of their European Festival Tour. They are now headed to the US for their Fall Tour.

They will play 15 Shows before going to South Africa for two festival appearances.
On the 20th September the band will play at the Tricky Falls in El Paso, Texas and afterwards they will DJ the Afterparty at The Perch. You can now buy tickets for that event.

Earlier this week they performed at the Popaganda Festival in Sweden and the GlavClub in Russia. There some of you had the idea to hold up Gameshow hearts which made for a beautiful sight!

Holy shit! Moscow you were crazy last night. We felt the love. Hope you felt it too.

Three days ago an interview with Kevin and Sam got published by Fifa. Over the years the band has been featured in the Fifa Game Soundtrack three times with Undercover Martyn (Fifa 11), Sleep Alone (Fifa 13) and Are We Ready ? (Wreck) (Fifa 17).


The Interview is mostly about footbal, but they still talk a little bit about the Tour, including the time they spotted Ronaldo at their São Paulo gig.

Talk Soon,

Reading & Leeds

Hello everyone,

sadly summer and Two Door Cinema Clubs Gameshow Tour are slowly coming to an end.
These past two months the band has played around 20 festival shows in (mostly) Europe and Australia and have just another four left before going back to the US for 15 additional gigs that are part of their US Tour.
Afterwards they will finish the Gameshow Tour with 2 final shows in South Africa in October.

The guys have been on and off the road touring the record for 18 months now, including multiple festivals all over the World, a UK, Europe and (mini) Australia Tour and 4 US Tours.

One highlight of this summer has been Reading & Leeds festival. Back in 2010 Reading & Leeds was one of the first big festivals that the band played at and this year marks the 5th time that they were there.

Backstage they were interviewed by Gary Ryan from NME where they talked about the Tour and also their next album.
Because of the constant touring they haven’t had a chance to go into the studio yet, but Alex said that they have a big spectrum of ideas at the moment and that the 4th record might even go into yet another different direction from their old music.

If you live in the UK remember that you can watch their performance at Reading festival on the BBC iPlayer. Sadly the rest of us can’t enjoy it, but maybe we will get lucky and one of the songs gets uploaded to the BBC Youtube channel like it was the case at Big Weekend.

Update:
Check out this video from the BBC Newsbeat Twitter that shows the band just as they go on stage, including their pre-show High Five!


AND make sure to watch the bands performance of Bad Decisions

I hope you all had a nice summer!

Hello everyone,
it´s been such a long time since my last post and quite a few things have happened.
First of all on behalf of all of us I´d like to wish Sam, Kevin and Ben a belated Happy Birthday!

The guys have been really busy this July playing at Festivals and doing their mini Australia Tour. I saw them at the Cruïlla Festival in Barcelona on the 7th July. Previously to their show Sam and Kevin visited the Camp Nou Stadium where they got their own custom TDCC Football Jersey which Sam even wore at the gig!

Més que un band! Gracias @fcbarcelona

While in Australia for Tour one very exciting thing that has happened is that the guys decided to adopted a Dingo.
It’s called Jira the ‘Two Door’ Dingo and I hope we will get some more pictures of it from future visits!

Thanks for having us Australia, we will be back soon to see Jira and you all as soon as we can.

After taking a small week break the guys will go back to playing shows today, starting at the Boardmasters Festival in the UK.

If you have already gone to a show or plan on going but missed out on buying some merchandising be sure to check out the bands online Store (UK / US) this week, because up to the 17 of August you will get 25% OFF of any purchase using the promo code SUMMER.
