The countdown has begun.
You have exactly one week to get hold of your Crystal Castles tickets for when they play the Canadian duo play the Powerstation next Thursday night, and after a painful 18 month hiatus, you are not going to want to miss their grand return.
While others will be standing in a field at Coachella and Bonnaroo (I know, gross right?) we are lucky enough to be able to catch them at their most intimate – an intimacy that is unlikely to be experienced by any Crystal Castles fan ever again.
Tickets can be purchased here, but before you go splashing your cash, remember it’s 18+.
