Explosions In The Sky are back!

Explosions In The Sky’s last London show was at a sold-out Brixton Academy in early 2012, and the Roundhouse the year before that. The band’s incendiary and emotional live performances are the stuff of legend and fans will doubtless be thrilled to see the band’s much-celebrated mini-symphonies within the setting of the Royal Albert Hall.
