You Me At Six appear to be teasing the UK venues they are set to play on their 2025 farewell UK tour.

The band revealed earlier this year that they would be breaking up in 2025 after two decades together. At the time, they teased a run of gigs this year and next where they’d “say goodbye to fans”.

The trek is due to kick off in Paris on November 15 ahead of further dates in Hamburg, Copenhagen, Berlin, Warsaw, Prague and other locations throughout that month.

And although UK dates are yet to be confirmed, the band have teased a clip on their social media platforms showing various venues including Dublin Olympia, Glasgow Barrowlands, O2 Apollo Manchester, Nottingham Rock City, Cardiff Students’ Union and London’s OVO Arena Wembley. You can view the post below.

Speaking to NME previously about You Me At Six’s forthcoming split, frontman Franceschi explained that the two-decade milestone had “always been our finish line” for the band.

“This is like our childhood crush, that we’ve been together with for 20 years and grown up alongside,” he continued. “But it is so much bigger than us five. It’s completely out of our hands what this band means to others. Let’s have the opportunity to say goodbye properly, versus slipping out the back door.”

As for what to expect from the farewell shows, Franceschi told NME: “We’ve worked out that our final gig is going to be 20 years to the day since our first ever band practice, which is wild. It wasn’t even deliberate.

“The UK tour is gonna be pretty mad. It’s a couple of months until we announce those dates. We’re looking at going to America, Europe, Australia, and Japan.”

He went on to say that YMAS “want to play for over two hours” at their final gigs, adding: “We want to have about 40-50 songs that are all rehearsed so that we can mix it up every night.

“If you come to multiple nights, you’re gonna see a different show the next night. I think that will keep us on our toes.”

You Me At Six will play their last festival set at this year’s Slam Dunk later this month, with Franceschi telling NME that it’ll be “a really poetic ending to [their] great relationship” with the event. “It’s a great honour to go and play there,” he said.

The band’s eighth and final studio album, ‘Truth Decay’, was released in 2022.
