Athlete hit the track for UK tour in July
Date Posted: 25/05/11
Athlete are getting on the road again and touring the UK, performing all of their favourites from their three hit albums.
The Hits – Stripped Back will kick off in front of those booking Cardiff hotels on Monday July 11th at the city's Globe.
They will then go on to perform in Brighton, Coventry, Cambridge, Bristol, London and Newcastle, among others locations.
Athlete broke through eight years ago when they released their debut album Vehicles and Animals, which was subsequently nominated for a Mercury Music Prize.
They followed this up with Tourist and Beyond the Neighbourhood, with their three albums producing hits like Half Light, El Salvador, Wires and Hurricane.
As the tour title suggests, it will see the band take on a more acoustic and laid-back style, singing their hits in a way which has never been seen before.
It will also come on the back of their appearance at the Big Festival 2011, which takes place at London's Clapham Common on Sunday July 3rd.
