The National said: “We’re excited to be returning to London next summer, a city we’ve always loved. Crystal Palace is a new neighbourhood to us, although not to the football fans in the band.” 

The National create nuanced, alternative rock of the highest order spanning across ten deft studio albums. Known for their inimitable live performances the band recently played two sold out shows at Alexandra Palace in London to their ever-expanding, loyal fanbase, resulting in “An era-defining band at the peak of their powers” (The Guardian). 

Formed in New York in 1999, The National’s last five albums have all been in the Top 5 in the UK charts, with 2017’s Grammy award-winning Sleep Well Beast hitting Number 1. In the US, the band have scored five top 10 albums on The Billboard 200, supporting the quintet’s globally acclaimed status. Earlier this year The National released their new record First Two Pages of Frankenstein, which was swiftly followed five months later by the surprise release of the follow-up album, Laugh Track, in September. With a penchant for epic shows with ever-changing setlists, The National at Crystal Palace Park is set to be one of the most anticipated shows in London next summer.
