Front 242 announce farewell tour

Front 242 have announced their final run of shows before they retire and bring their four-decade career to an end.

The electronic trio will be touring the world one last time throughout the rest of 2024, with dates set to take place throughout Europe and North America. Their last ever shows will take place in Brussels in January 2025.

In a statement posted to Instagram, the electronic body music pioneers wrote: “Front 242 will stop performing concerts.


“It is with a heavy mix of emotion that Front 242 announce their last concerts.

“We sadly close a great adventure of some 40 years amazing feelings shared with our wonderful audience. We realize that stopping now with a great image and full energy is what everybody would like to remember.

“Many thanks for your unfailing support.”

The tour includes festival shows as well as headline shows – the only UK date will take place at London’s Electric Ballroom on December 8.
