The War On Drugs - Greenwich via Brixton

14 Dec 2018

The War On Drugs performed a very special gig to 20,000 capacity at The O2, London on Thursday 13th December 2018, 10 years after performing to 166 at The Windmill, Brixton.

Their fourth album, the 2017 release A Deeper Understanding, garnered huge critical acclaim and praise for the Philadelphian band, picking up from where their 2014 masterpiece Lost in the Dream left off, and winning them a Grammy Award in the process. This European arena tour wraps up a triumphant 2018 for Adam Granduciel and his band.

Their O2 arena show came after a long sold out show at Alexandra Palace in 2017, and a massive outdoor performance at Victoria Park this June with The National.

They were joined by very special guests, Slowdive; the British shoegaze legends who last year made one of the greatest recent comebacks with their fantastic self-titled album Slowdive, their first release since 1995’s Pygmalion.
