What is important to note about last night’s O2 Shepheard's Bush Empire show, is that it is the group’s first London headlining gig in 19 years. It was booked around the same time that the band went on a very successful Star Shaped Festival tour.
The O2 Shepheard’s Bush Empire headlining show had support from Silver Suns (not to be confused with Silversun Pickups) and Yassassin, with Starshaped DJs playing music before, between, and after the show.
Even with tickets priced at £22.00 (excluding booking fees), the show was sold out. Fans as far as America flew in just for this reunion gig.
The other thing worth noting is that Sleeper will be doing a full headlining UK tour in 2018. Some dates have already sold out.
Also: Sleeper’s first camping music festival will take place at Spring Gathering at Catton Park. Although the festival lasts over the weekend, Sleeper is only playing Friday night.
