The Irish folk band last month announced their biggest UK shows to date, which will see the group make stops in Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Bristol across March 2024.
The band will now also perform at the Roundhouse on March 22, 2024 to wrap up the tour. Tickets are due to go on sale for the new date at 9:30am GMT on Friday (December 15) from here, while tickets for the rest of the shows are already on sale.

They performed a string of UK dates through November and are touring Ireland and Scotland for the rest of December.

The band spoke to NME back in July around the release of their new single ‘Wexford’ about how they were looking to challenge perceptions of Irish folk music while making it more accessible.
“I suppose part of the craic of it is that so many different ages come to our gigs,” guitarist Charles Hendy said. “The songs are actually painfully relevant. We sing about landlords, about property, about the cost of living in general – and they resonate with younger people… [But equally] some of the songs are about 400 years old!”
“We touch on a wide range of emotions too… some are funny and some of them are more serious,” he added. “It’s nice to have people crowd surfing to Irish music.”
Back in October, The Mary Wallopers also shared the stripped-back video for ‘The Idler’, a track which condemned figures of greed in society.
