Bastille After two moderately successful single releases in 2012, Bastille finally found major success in 2013 with the release of their fourth single, Pompeii, which charted at number two and was shortly followed by their number one debut album, Bad Blood. Following the release of further hit tracks Of The Nig ht - a mash-up of the Rhythm of the Night by Corona and Rhythm is a Dancer by Snap! - and Things We Lost in the Fire, the band are stopping by legendary venue Somerset House Summer Series for a one-night gig this July.

 

About Somerset House

Somerset House, once the site of a spectacular Tudor palace, now includes a magnificent 18th century art gallery housing celebrated collections belonging to the Courtauld Institute Gallery, as well as the Embankment Galleries (which replaced the Hermitage Rooms and The Gilbert Collection - the latter re-opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in June 2009).
