How do I get tickets for the Birmingham concert?

Several ticket categories are available, and prices range from £45.25 up to £127.75.

All tickets bought for the two previous dates will be valid for this event.

What is the setlist?

The tour has yet to start, therefore figuring out the setlist for the tour is difficult.

However, this is a ‘Greatest Hits Tour’, the first that the band has ever undertaken, and therefore we can expect to see the group play the songs that are instantly recognisable.

The duo will likely play their new single ‘DreamWorld’ which was recorded with Years & Years, as well as some other tracks from their latest album.

Be sure to listen out for some of the group’s classics, however.
