Read on to learn how to get tickets to their reunion tour.
What Is Pulp’s Reunion Tour?
“This Is What We Do for an Encore” is a reference to the title track to This Is Hardcore. In a statement, the band explained, “An encore happens when the crowd makes enough noise to bring the band back to the stage. “So… We are playing in the UK and Ireland in 2023. Therefore… Come along and make some noise. See you there.”
The 2023 tour begins in May with shows in Bridlington and Warrington, UK. From there, Pulp will perform in Dublin, Ireland, London, Glasgow, Scarborough, and more. The trek includes two dates at the Utilita Arena in the band’s hometown of Sheffield.
What Is Pulp’s Reunion Tour Lineup?
