Catfish and the Bottlemen are back. Marking their return with the announcement of eagerly anticipated 2024 live dates.
Fronted by charismatic Van McCann, the band have always united people around their music and live performances. Freed from opinion and expectation, fans flock in their hundreds of thousands to see and hear the band in concert, exercising joyful release, in communion, as the rest of the world appears to fight with itself on the outside. Catfish and the Bottlemen possess a magnetic and dynamic focal point in McCann, renowned for posing everyday, easily-identifiable observations through his lyrics.
The band’s activities supporting their double platinum debut album The Balcony quickly brought festival main stages and US late night television appearances. Platinum-certified The Ride and gold-certified The Balance propelled them further into UK sell-outs at Don Valley Stadium, Manchester and Wembley Arena, Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park and Cardiff Castle.

Significantly, it also invited more quality time with global fans on tours to the USA, South America, Australia and Japan. Audiences from Manchester to Melbourne, Tokyo to Los Angeles, Berlin to New York, and everywhere in between have been engulfed by the swell of eager sentiment propelled from a vociferous fanbase.
