The Vaccines

Aside from dissing Rihanna – and, by default, her ‘Princess Of China’ collaborators Coldplay – for lacking all “artistic merit”, forthright Sony/Columbia signings The Vaccines have also been busy booking a pretty ambitious headline tour in promotion of their new LP, ‘The Vaccines Come Of Age’.

Most ambitious of all is a date at London’s Alexandra Palace, as will also feature ‘special guests’ in Canadian hardcore vets Fucked Up. Yes, Fucked Up are playing warm-up act to The Vaccines. No comment. Diiv, Deap Vally and Pale will take sub-billings across other dates, which look thus:

15 Nov: Plymouth, Pavilions
17 Nov: London, Alexandra Palace
19 Nov: Leicester, De Montfort Hall
21 Nov: Manchester, Apollo
22 Nov: Liverpool, Su Mountford Hall
23 Nov: Doncaster, Dome
25 Nov: Glasgow, Academy
27 Nov: Newcastle, Academy
29 Nov: Birmingham, Academy
30 Nov: Bournemouth, Academy
