The Maccabees return with October Tour

21 Sep

When procuring gig tickets today..

Do you hate paying insulting “admin fees”? Yeah me too.

Don’t you just hate paying £4.85 for the postie to drop through your door two tickets, combined weight 0.08g? So do I.

How much of your life will you never get back while you have either:

a) waited in for above mentioned postman to arrive, so you can provide your autograph in exchange for the tickets or;

b) had to physically go yourself to the local sorting office to retrieve the tickets you’ve shelled out to be delivered to you in the comfort of your own home.

If, like me, this kind of thing really grinds your gears, then you will be simply thrilled to hear that Brighton’s finest, The Maccabees, have made a tour announcement that takes us back to a more innocent time, a simpler time, a time before the internet.

Tickets for the below shows will go onsale through a variety of local indie record stores. They are taking the process back to its most basic form:

1. Want a ticket.

2. Go to shop.

3. Exchange payment.

4. Walk out with ticket.

Its so simple, why hasn’t anyone thought of it before?

These much anticipated shows are onsale from this Saturday, and provide fans with an early opportunity to hear material from the band’s forthcoming, as yet untitled third album.
