At the end of February, Catfish and the Bottlemen announced a concert at Cardiff Castle and the pre-sale sold out within one minute. A second Cardiff Castle date was added, and now the Welsh indie rock band are playing their biggest show to date at Liverpool’s Sefton Park.


With the pre-sale going live this morning, the Going Out team are on hand to ensure you secure tickets in that (potentially) one-minute window.

Catfish and the Bottlemen’s comeback track, Showtime, marked frontman Van McCann’s first song in five years, following the band’s last album, 2019’s The Balance.

The 2024 shows are a welcome return for former indie kids like the Going Out team; the Welsh band had us in the palm of their hands during the mid-to-late 2010s — we remember cornering the frontman Van McCann before their set at Derbyshire's Y Not Festival to sign his name on our arms, and driving for almost two hours at university to see them perform live. But we know we’re not alone.

Catfish and the Bottlemen's debut album, The Balcony, raced into the top 10 in the UK Albums Chart, and achieved Platinum status in 2016. Also in 2016, the band's second album, The Ride, shot to the number one spot in the UK Albums Chart, and has sold a whopping 300,000 units since its release.
