The Gaslight Anthem London 2022: how to get OVO Arena Wembley show tickets, UK tour dates, possible set list

American rockers include London to their whirlwind UK tour.

New Jersey indie-rockers The Gaslight Anthem recently announced the schedule for their upcoming European tour , with a handful of dates in the United Kingdom.

The band, who in March 2022 announced the end of their “indefinite hiatus”, have included London as a stop  in August as it makes its wayacross mainland Europe and the United Kingdom.

It’s been four years since the group last toured the UK, with their London show their biggest UK headlining slot to date - so here’s how to get tickets to avoid missing out.

When is The Gaslight Anthem coming to London?

The New Jersey band will be performing at the OVO Arena on August 18 2022, with support from iconic 2 tone London group, The Selecter.

The last time The Gaslight Anthem performed in London was back in July 2018 at the Eventim Apollo, across two nights - so the band’s performance next month has been long awaited by English fans.

Where else is The Gaslight Anthem Playing?

It’s quite the whistle stop tour in the United Kingdom, with the band’s entire European dates condensed into August.

After a six-date stint in Germany, the foursome head over the UK for a mere five dates:

  • August 18: OVO Arena Wembley, London
  • August 19: O2 Academy, Manchester
  • August 20: O2 Academy, Edinburgh
  • August 21: O2 Academy, Birmingham
  • August 24: Telegraph Building, Belfast

The group will also be performing in Ireland on August 23 at the National Stadium, Dublin.

How do I get tickets for their London show?

Tickets for the show are currently for sale through Ticketmaster and Vivagogo.

Tickets can also be purchased through AXS, which offers a number of alternative hospitality packages including lounge packages and disability access.

So what’s The Gaslight Anthem’s set-list going to be?

That question is an interesting one.

After coming out of their hiatus, the band had mentioned that they would be returning to the studio this year (via. Instagram), so this might be the opportunity for the band to trial some of the new tracks to live audiences.

But for those that simply have to know what to expect, here’s the last set list from the band’s homecoming/return performance from June 18 in New Jersey - including a sneaky Nirvana cover.

  • Great Expectations
  • Old White Lincoln

  • We Came to Dance

Great. But who are The Gaslight Anthem?

The Gaslight Anthem is an American rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey, formed in 2006. The band consists of Brian Fallon (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Alex Rosamilia (lead guitar, backing vocals), Alex Levine (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Benny Horowitz (drums, percussion).

The band have released five studio albums since 2007, with their third album, Handwritten, peaking at number three in the Billboard 200 and the lead single from the album, “45” becoming their most successful single to date.

On July 29, 2015, the band announced an indefinite hiatus following their European summer tour, which concluded at Reading Festival on Sunday 30 August.

The band temporarily reunited for a string of shows in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The ‘59 Sound, before resuming their hiatus.

In March 2022, the band announced that they had reunited and returned to "full time status", and that they had begun writing their sixth studio album.
