Royal Blood have added a new date to their upcoming Typhoons UK tour: their first show of the run will also be the first show ever at the new Swansea Arena.

The Brighton duo – with support from The Amazons – will help open the new 3,500-capacity venue in style, with Swansea Arena manager Lisa Mart enthusing: "We are really excited to be announcing our eagerly anticipated first act!

"Royal Blood are absolutely incredible and their stage shows are renowned for being full of energy and light."
