New Dates announced for the 40th Anniversary Concerts at Rhyl and Cardiff

The 40th Anniversary celebration concert with Mike Peters and The Alarm – The Gathering @ St. David’s Hall , Cardiff will now take place on January 21st 2022.

The 40th Anniversary Celebration [Acoustic] Gathering Concert with Mike Peters at Rhyl Town Hall will also now take place on January 14th /15th 2022.

NB: All original tickets for both these completely SOLD OUT events will remain valid for the new dates.

The new date for St. David’s Hall, Cardiff (one of the fastest selling shows in the band’s history), will allow fans to see Mike Peters and The Alarm in concert for the first time in almost 2 years.
Imagine the feeling when the house lights go down and together we all get to participate in a Gathering and experience The Alarm’s music live on stage after nearly two years silent “says Mike Peters. “We have all waited patiently to see if government protocols would allow the original Gathering show dates to continue but unfortunately, time and the pandemic have worked against us. The promoters have worked hard to secure new dates for January  2022 (which now takes us back to a more familiar Gathering time), and given all we have been through together this past two years, January 2022 allows us to not only celebrate The Alarm’s 40th Anniversary, but also to give thanks for the life and freedom we will hopefully have attained by then. I have a feeling that it’s going to be the greatest Gathering ever! Bring it on.”
