• Third annual celebration of The Alarm "New York Gathering" confirmed for April 12 & 13, 2019


The Alarm, will ignite their 19-date North American tour promoting Equals (the critically lauded new album which has simultaneously put the band back on the charts on both sides of the Atlantic), by performing an acoustic set at Kulak’s Woodshed in Los Angeles on October 24th before appearing at the legendary Roxy Theater on Sunset Boulevard, the very next night on October 25th.  It’s been 31 years since The Alarm have performed at The Roxy, so this is sure to be a special night and exciting way to kick off the North American tour.


Prior to the tour, Mike Peters and The Alarm are also taking part in the Love Hope Strength Foundation fund-raising trek Rock The Canyons from Oct. 14-20, 2018 which will take the band, cancer survivors, supporters and musicians (including Robin Wilson of Gin Blossoms and Billy Duffy of The Cult), into the depths of The Grand Canyon to perform a unique concert followed by a Golf Day and finale event at the ARCIS Desert Pines Golf Club in Las Vegas on Oct. 20. One of the best natural wonders of the world on one of the best charity events imaginable!

The Alarm recently performed atop the LIVE Nation building in New York attracting over 100,000 Facebook Live viewers while announcing dates for the tour and their third annual New York Gathering which will take place April 12-13, 2019 at both the Gramercy Theatre and Irving Plaza.

Both events will feature two very special and unique Alarm concert experiences.

On Friday April 12, at the Gramercy TheatreThe Alarm will perform in full, the exact same set list as presented during their historic 'Spirit Of '86 Concert' that was broadcast globally by MTV on April 12, 1986. This anniversary concert will also coincide with the re-release date for The Alarm's STRENGTH album which is being re-mastered and made available in record stores around the world also on April 12, 2019. The title song 'Strength' gave it's name to the Love Hope Strength charity co-founded by three time cancer survivor, Mike Peters in 2007 that has since registered over 150,000 people to the International Bone Marrow Registry and potentially saved over 3,500 lives in the process.

On Saturday April 13The Alarm will perform a second full electric set at the prestigious Irving Plaza in New York, where fans can expect to hear all the very best Alarm music that has resonated with North American audiences since the release of The Stand back in 1983 and endured to the present day, through the release of new album Equals.
