The Grammy-nominated band spent the week preparing for the album’s release. On Tuesday, iHeartRadio held an album release party for the sophomore LP. They performed songs off of Wild World, including singles “Good Grief” and “Send Them Off.” But a Bastille show isn’t complete without a performance of “Pompeii,” right? They performed the hit song, as well as others from Bad Blood.
Today (9/9/16), the group performed for fans in New York City on the Today Show’s ‘Citi Concert Series.’ If you missed it on television, or want to view some of the performance, click here.
Earlier in the week, Dan Smith announced a series of pop-up shops that would occur in Los Angeles, New York City and London. At these shops, fans can meet the band, receive signed merchandise and purchase items from the “Wild World.” The first one occurred in LA on Wednesday and the second one in New York City is happening today. The third pop-up shop is set for September 13th in Shoreditch, London. It is free for everyone.
