Royal Blood recently made their long-awaited return to the live arena, playing intimate shows in Bristol and Newcastle before headlining the Tramlines festival. NME’s review of the Bristol gig described it as “the kind of live show that will remind many fans of what they’ve been missing; and for some, perhaps, it’s an exhilarating first time.”
Now the duo add an underplay show at Lincoln’s Engine Shed on September 13th ahead of the following night’s headline set at the Eden Project. Tickets for Lincoln will be available here from 9am on Friday, August 13th while Eden Project tickets will be available here from 5pm that same day.

The success of ‘Typhoons’ heralds an exciting new era for Royal Blood, who are firmly established as one of rock’s biggest and most vital bands. The Brighton duo have completed a phenomenal hat-trick in which all three of their studio albums have immediately topped the UK album charts, a streak that commenced with their self-titled debut (2014) and then ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’ (2017). To date, they have achieved 2 million global sales, and won the BRIT Award for Best British Group, two NME Awards and a Kerrang! Award. Their debut album was also nominated for the Mercury Prize.
Also hitting the Top 10 in the USA and Canada, everything about the ‘Typhoons’ campaign has elevated Royal Blood’s status as one of the leading lights in the international rock scene. Meanwhile the critical consensus has praised their ability to add a fresh element to their sound without losing the visceral energy that first made them such an engaging prospect.
