The sixty-date tour will kick off in Dublin at the 3 Arena which doubles up as an album launch party on November 16 before stretching through to Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe Arena on May 21.

The six month run routes the band up and down the UK followed by a brief stop in the US and Canada ahead of Christmas.

In January, they head over to Australia and New Zealand (including the first Gentlemen of the Road show of the campaign in Auckland), before heading back over to the US for a more substantial run of shows, concluding with sixteen dates across Europe.

The Delta world tour will include a night at London’s O2 Arena on November 29 and their debut at New York’s Madison Square Garden on the December 10.

Support in the UK and the US (2018 dates) comes from Maggie Rogers and Michael Kiwanuka in support for Australia.

Tickets will go on sale from 9am local time on Friday 12th October via & Sons release Delta on November 16 through Gentlemen of the Road/Island Records.

Introduced by the frenetic, persistent rhythms of first single Guiding Light, it’s a wildly experimental record that effortlessly marries the intimacy and jubilance of the band’s first two records, with the scope and stadium-sized dynamics of 2015’s Wilder Mind. It was produced by Paul Epworth in London.
