Live For The Last Time: The Farewell Shows

Second Manchester Date Added!


Due to phenomenal demand The Maccabees have announced a second date at the Manchester O2 Apollo on June 27th next year, in addition to the previously announced shows in Manchester and at London’s Alexandra Palace. Without doubt, these shows will be one of the highlights of 2017.


The must see shows will be a chance to bid farewell to this much loved band, following their announcement to split in August, much to the dismay of the musical community. This followed a brilliant 12 month period where the band scaled new heights; headlining Latitude Festival and getting their first number one album with the acclaimed ‘Marks To Prove It’.


Felix White says, “We're planning on these final shows being a huge celebration, thank you and goodbye to 14 years of writing, recording, playing and touring together.”
