The Enemy announce major 2022 reunion tour


We’ll Live And Die In These Towns

With the 15th anniversary of their debut album ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’ approaching, Cov’s indie saviours The Enemy have announced an extensive UK reunion tour that will take place in 2022.

The tour features the band’s original and only line-up, Tom Clarke (vocals/guitar), Andy Hopkins (bass) and Liam Watts (drums) and represents the first chance for fans to see the band in action since they played three sold-out farewell shows in their hometown back in 2016. 

 The news follows Tom Clarke’s sold-out solo show at Coventry’s HMV Empire, where he invited Andy Hopkins and Liam Watts on stage. The trio then announced that they will return to the venue to perform together as The Enemy on October 28th 2022. Fans in attendance were given the chance to immediately and exclusively buy tickets for the show, via QR codes displayed throughout the venue, resulting in the gig immediately selling out.   

 The Enemy commented, 

2022 marks the 15th anniversary of ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’ and six years since we all played together. Over the last decade-and-a-half we’ve watched fans begin to really treasure those songs and we’re asked on an almost daily basis if there is any chance of the three of us getting back on stage together, so we know how much this will mean to the fans. What we weren’t expecting was quite how excited we would all be to play together again. There’s a lot of anticipation and excitement from the three of us to go out and play, just us, the songs and the fans. We really can’t wait!” 

 ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’ featured the Top 10 singles ‘Had Enough’ and ‘Away From Here’. 

NME’s review described it as being 

Blisteringly frank, frequently inspiring, consistently brilliant and, most importantly of all, the only way out they know.” 

 It was followed by another two hit records: 2009’s ‘Music For The People’ (#2) and 2012’s ‘Streets In The Sky’ (#9), plus their final album‘It’s Automatic’ from 2015. They’ve continued to command a following in recent years, with tracks from We’ll Live And Die…’ amassing almost 40 million streams at Spotify alone, along with strong ticket sales for Tom Clarke’s solo shows. 

The dates will see also recently reformed Sheffield band Little Man Tate and also Wide Eyed Boy supporting.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday 10am for O2 Priority pre-sale and Friday 10am general sale.
