Yeah Yeah Yeahs To Play First UK Show In A Decade
by Music-News.com on March 15, 2022
Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced their first UK tour in almost a decade.
Karen O and co haven’t toured on British soil since the New York band’s 2013 run in support of their most recent studio album, ‘Mosquito’.
That’s about to change this summer, as they will play headline shows at O2 Apollo in Manchester on June 5 and London’s O2 Academy Brixton on June 7.
The Manchester gig will see English Teacher support, while Dry Cleaning and Anika will warm up the London crowd.
What’s more, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are set to “try out” some new music at the pair of gigs.
Sharing her excitement at returning to the UK, Karen O wrote on social media: “OK UK! We are coming to lend our light to dark ages and holy s*** are we ready to play our hearts out for you!!
“Yeah it’s been 9 years since we’ve graced your club stages! Yeah we’ve got some tunes so fresh and so NEW to try out on you! Yeah the bill is so MAJOR with Dry Cleaning and Anika in London and English Teacher in Manchester.
“Dress up! Make a night of it! Support your fave band that you may have seen debut at Brixton back in ’02!! Yeah let’s not wait another decade to see each other again! CANNOT WAIT! They don’t love ya like we do!! Luv YYYs. (sic)”
YYY’s last performance in the UK was at All Points East festival in the British capital in 2018.
Meanwhile, Karen O previously admitted she was “ready” to record some new music, though nothing was in the pipeline at the time.
Speaking in 2020, Karen said: “I do not know the answer to that question.
“All I can say is that I feel ready to make some music. That’s pretty much all I could say to that.
“It feels like time to have something new out there. But that’s yet to happen, so we’ll see how this year goes.”

“Yeah it’s been 9 years since we’ve graced your club stages! Yeah we’ve got some tunes so fresh and so NEW to try out on you!”
Gracing the Stages
They have dates planned to perform in Manchester and London. The opening acts set to grace the stages include Dry Cleaning and Anika at the London show and English Teacher is set to open at their Manchester date. At venues including the O2 Apollo on the 5th of June and the Brixton Academy on the 7th of June, where they originally debuted back in 2002. The tickets are going to be available for eager fans on March 18th at 9am via Ticketmaster and See Tickets . The group have encouraged fans to “dress up” for the performance, in fear that they’ll have to wait another decade to perform. Per Pinknews , they are clearly enthused to make the most out of the night as they’re “ready to play our hearts out for you!!”
A Step Back In Time
The garage-punk, New York 2000s formed band is composed of vocalist and pianist Karen O, guitarist and keyboardist Nick Zinner, and drummer Brian Chase. But how did the legendary punk band merge their musical abilities into the world-wide known band they are today? The scene is set at Oberlin College in Ohio in the late 1990s, when Karen O and Brain Chase, as eager, young student musicians met. Chase was a jazz student at the Conservatory of Music, whereas Karen transferred to New York State University.
They kept their close ties. Karen at her new institution met the soon-to-be guitarist and keyboardist – Zinner, in a bar. Magnetically drawn by the power of music, they soon shared a loft together. The band was formed in 2000 in New York. Zinner and a friend of his referred to as Orzolek formed a duo called ‘Unitard’, but eventually got bored by the somber, acoustic genre they created, and formed a punk-rock duo. They based their inspiration on the avant-punk rock bands that Karen O was inspired by at Oberlin College in Ohio. Musical inspirations include The Strokes and The White Stripes.
The bands genre and style has is edgy post-punk, sort of a mix of Blondie and Siouxie and the Banshees. The original drummer they recruited left, and fate intervened, when Chase joined.
History Of Their Albums
Their first self-debut album was released in late-2001, entitled “ Shifty” . Which astronomically reached the UK Indie Chart’s top number 1. They began making their mark on the international stage in early 2002, through performing in the United States among other household names. Such as touring America with Girls Against Boys . Their debut album ‘ Fever to Tell ’ was released the following year, and sold up to 750,000 copies. With many more impressive and internationally praised singles, the band hit success.
The band’s second album “ Show Your Bones” was released in 2006. It was rated the 44th best album in 2006 by Rolling Stone magazine. With many more albums from ‘Is Is’ in 2006, and ‘ It’s Blitz! ’ in 2009. Getting together to perform throughout the years, and are ready to perform on March 18th in London and Manchester!
The band hasn’t recently released any new music; hence, the absolute excitement to be performing a headline show once again. As Karen O, the lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs told nme in 2020,
“It feels like time to have something new out there. But that’s yet to happen, so we’ll see how this year goes.”

Early 21 st century New York rockers the Yeah Yeah Yeahs — singer Karen O , guitarist Nick Zinner and drummer Brian Chase — have announced new music and tour dates in the summer and fall. The group, which recently signed with indie powerhouse Secretly Canadian, say they will have new music in the fall.

It seems likely more dates will be added.

Formed in 2000, the group was one of the leading lights of the turn-of-the-century New York City rock scene that also included the Strokes, Interpol, LCD Soundsystem, TV on the Radio, the National, Liars, the Rapture and many others. Their unusually spare lineup created a very full sound, dominated by O’s shape-shifting vocals and wild stage presence, Zinner’s effects-laden guitar and Chase’s propulsive drumming; their self-titled debut EP displayed an unexpectedly versatile sound and, in “Our Time,” an anthem for the burgeoning NYC rock scene of the era, which has since been documented in the Lizzy Goodman’s “Meet Me in the Bathroom” memoir and film.
The group signed with the formidable major label Interscope in 2002 and released their debut full-length, “Fever to Tell,” the following year, which spawned the alternative hit “Maps” and launched Karen as a major media figure. An equally strong sophomore effort, “Show Your Bones,” followed three years later and the more electronic-based “It’s Blitz!” three years after that, and the group finished out the decade as a major festival headliner and one of the biggest alternative groups in the business, outlasting the impact of most of their contemporaries. However, they embarked on solo projects and reunited for a final Interscope album, “Mosquito,” in 2011, which finished out their contract with the label. All three were musically active throughout the 2010s, Zinner with production work most prominently with Karen’s 2019 excellent “Lux Prima” collaboration with songwriter-producer Danger Mouse, which sonically recalled ’60s artists like John Barry and Serge Gainsbourg and showed yet another side of her musical talent.

I saw the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in Camber Sands in 2006. At the time I didn’t know much of their music, but was interested in them enough to check them out. I’ve tried to see them again a couple of times since then, but tickets for their shows always seem to sell out really fast so I realised now how lucky I was to see them when I did! If I remember rightly, they actually curated that festival, and their choice of line-up was excellent too. Although the gig in question was several years ago now, I remember their performance was really tight and Karon O in particular has a very commanding stage presence and an incredible voice. There were no “gimmicks” in the show – no back-projected films or glitter balls or confetti, or any of that stuff – just the band, standing up there, doing their thing. And they do it very, very well indeed. Even as someone who was not particularly familiar with their songs, I thoroughly enjoyed their set, and although I wouldn’t describe myself as a big fan, I’d definitely love to see them again, and have bought all 4 albums they have released to date.
So if you’re thinking about going to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, don’t hold back. Go and see them the first chance you get!

I've always enjoyed a little bit of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but till I saw them live; I don't believe I knew the true meaning of falling in love with a band, or the true extent of my capacity to have a full on lady-crush. Karen O's stage presence is beyond electric, and she commands deep respect and awe the moment she steps on to the stage. The set they played was very carefully crafted, and they took the crowd through the classics dotted with a couple of the more recent tracks very subtly weaved in, so as to make sure the beat was always up, and the crowd was buzzing. Everyone went wild for most songs anyway, which for someone like myself (who was well acquainted with their older stuff but not so much their newer work) was a definite positive. Yeah Yeah Yeah's are a truly amazing and inspirational band, and I can't wait to see them live again soon... this time though, I will know every lyric to every track and I will belt along with the rest of their super-fans!
Every howl, yelp, screech was delivered perfectly and flawlessly by Karen O.
Perfect show, they played all their classic songs, and it sounded just like the albums. Plus the band kept playing from one song to the next without stopping. Everything about this show was pure raw energy and awesomeness.
Definitely would recommend and I am definitely going again.
Absolutely fantastic. I travelled from Denver to see them. Great venue. Great setlist and order. Awesome finale. The huge confetti guns were out of this world. Love you Karen. Keep rocking. Can't wait for the next tour. Come to Denver and play Red Rocks.
