NOFX Announce Final London Shows at O2 Academy Brixton

Legendary punk rock band, NOFX are set to end their musical journey after 40 years. However, before they go, Fat Mike and his band have announced two very special London shows. NOFX will perform at the O2 Academy Brixton on Tuesday, June 11 and Wednesday, June 12, 2024. During these dates, they will play three different albums each night and will be part of their final tour.

On Tuesday 11 June, the band will perform Punk In Drublic, Wolves in Wolves’ Clothing and Pump Up. With support from Descendents, Codefendants and Pulley and Last Hounds. Alternatively, on Wednesday 12 June, they’ll play So Long & Thanks, White Trash and The Decline, with support from Circle Jerks, SNUFF and The Meffs and The Last Gang.

Well renowned as one of the world’s most controversial and significant punk bands of their era, NOFX have a reputation for boundary-pushing live shows. Their second leg of the final tour promises to be no exception. Each night, the band will perform a huge set list of around forty songs from the aforementioned albums, plus some favourites and rarities. The band want to ensure that both performances will be unique. Therefore they will not play the same songs on both nights giving fans a unique experience whichever night they choose.

The announcement also follows their latest single I’m A Rat which is taken from their upcoming album Half Album. Which is due for release on Friday 19 April via Fat Wreck Chords. Their new single was also accompanied by a video. In the video we can see the band make full use of Mickey Mouse coming into the public domain with a comedic homage to the classic Steamboat Willie Cartoon.

Frontman Fat Mike said of the likely last album. “Was it worth it? Was it worth spending five years finishing the five songs on my double album project that I thought were the worst of the bunch?” asks Fat Mike. Was it a good idea to spend so much time raising the runts of the litter? Was it an error in judgement when I wrote a song about the magnitude of my arrogance? I think the answers to all of these rhetorical questions might be found by listening to this half-sided album… but I seriously doubt it.”

A few of the songs from the new album may feature in the London Shows. However, the primary focus will be more on their older albums as the band has already stated. This return to the iconic London venue, will mark over 20 years since they first performed there. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at Ticketmaster and from the official 02 Academy Brixton site.
