Milestones have just announced that they are to support Canadian band Simple Plan on their EU/UK tour in June. They will play their biggest shows thus far as a band, including London’s O2 Forum on 9th June. The tour starts in Switzerland on 31st May, and finishes up in Milan on 16th June. Guitarist Eden says of the tour, “From late May until June, we will be playing the biggest venues we have to date in the UK/EU with Simple Plan. We all grew up in the scene that bands such as Simple Plan/Sum 41/Good Charlotte dominated, so to be given the opportunity to tour with arguably one of the biggest pop punk acts of the decade is incredibly humbling. This is surely one of the biggest steps we are to take as a band.”
Tonight, the melodic pop-punk band play a show at Manchester’s O2 Ritz, supporting emo-rockers, Taking Back Sunday. Milestones then head off on tour supporting Australian pop-punk band With Confidence next week. The tour will start off at London’s Underworld on 24th February, working its way around the UK before heading to Cologne for the European leg on 8th March. The Better Weather tour will finish up in Eindhoven on 18th March. Tickets are on sale now, here.
Milestones have also recently announced that they will play Cheltenham’s 2000 Festival in the Summer, alongside bands such as Slaves and Nothing But Thieves. The band have been holed up in the studio recording their debut album, which is to be released later this year through Fearless Records. 2017 is set to be a very busy but exciting one for Milestones!
