Funeral For A Friend have announced their last ever live dates with the ‘Last Chance To Dance’ Tour, which will include shows across Australia, Europe and the UK. Full dates and ticket details are below.

The tour will act as a curtain call on the band’s prolific fifteen year career, with each city they play being treated to two shows. Matthew Davies-Kreye spoke on the band’s farewell to their fans.  

“It's the natural end," he said. "We've done everything we set out to do and way more than I could ever have hoped so I'm not upset that it's run its course. We all felt that ‘Chapter And Verse’ was a pretty decent full stop on an incredible fourteen and half years of making music together.   So, how do you celebrate a huge part of your life? You play some shows! For me it seemed obvious to go out with both ‘Hours’ and ‘Casually Dressed..’

"I feel that both those records distill what Funeral is to a whole load of people more definitively than just piecing together a set from all the records we've made. It seems to me that those are the records that matter most and ‘Hours’ to me is my proudest achievement in music with Funeral. I don't know why but it fills me with an overwhelming sense of pride.”  

The ‘Last Chance To Dance’ Tour will feature an ‘Hours’ show one night followed by a ‘Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation’ show the next in each and every city the band play.

Tickets are on sale Friday 18 September at 10am.
