Louis Tomlinson’s UK and European tour support announced as Only The Poets

The unsigned band previously shared the stage with Louis for his intimate BRITs week gig - so who are Only The Poets?

Louis Tomlinson’s UK and EU tour support has been announced as indie-pop band Only The Poets.

The Reading four-piece were handpicked by Louis to open for his BRITs week performance on February 13, and are now being whisked away to join the former One Direction star on the 11-date European leg of his massive world tour beginning in March.

The unsigned band made up of Tommy (vocals), Jarred (guitar), Marcus (drums) and Andy (bass) proudly built an army of loyal fans through relentless touring, house party gigs, Wetherspoons meet-ups and acoustic campsite shows at festivals across the UK.

The last two years have seen the band sell out venues across the UK, including London’s iconic Scala.

They’ve also had great support from Radio 1, including promo for their house party tour from Scott Mills and Chris Stark, and were Tune Of The Week in 2018 with signature song Even Hell.

With their big sing-along indie tunes, these guys are definitely one to watch. To date the group have racked up 1.2 million streams in the UK alone, according to Official Charts data.

Tickets for the UK leg of Louis Tomlinson’s tour are sadly sold out, but you can still catch Only The Poets at their homecoming show in April at Reading’s Sub89.
