Where will The Enemy’s final Coventry show be held?

Coventry band The Enemy has disappointed local fans with the announcement of their final show.

The band, who announced their impending separation via frontman Tom Clarke last week, will play six farewell shows around the UK in September.

It was expected that the band – whose breakthrough debut album was a Platinum seller and went straight to Number 1 – would play a large venue such as the Ricoh Arena as a farewell and thank you to local and loyal fans.

This wasn’t to be, however, as it was announced that the Away From Here group would perform at The Empire on Far Gosford Street in Coventry, which holds less than 1000 people, instead of playing to a much larger audience. As well as this, performing in Coventry won’t be their last show as a band: they will finish their musical career as The Enemy in Glasgow.

A poll conducted by Coventry Telegraph found that 85% of participants would want to see The Enemy perform at Godiva Festival this summer – a festival they have headlined in the past. Headliners for this year are The Boomtown Rats, The Charlatans and Scouting For Girls. Godiva Festival is a free and ticketless event held from 1st – 3rd July this year, and welcomed The Enemy three times in consecutive years from 2006 to 2008.

The final Coventry performance will be on Saturday 17th September, with tickets available for sale from Friday (15th April) at 9am. For a full list of the final shows, see below.
