Rising UK alt-pop artists Alfie Templeman and Thomas Headon announced their co-headlining 2 British Friends 1 North America tour, kicking off this fall.
Alfie & Thomas Finally Tour Together
If you’re a fan of both Alfie and Thomas’ music, you just won the lottery. They are going on tour together! The 2 British Friends 1 North America tour starts on November 7 in Anaheim, and will continue through 11 cities across North America like Seattle, Washington, and Chicago until reaching its final stop in Toronto on November 21.
It turns out that these two artists are actually very good friends. Their friendship began during the pandemic as they each supported the other’s work online before meeting in person. Their bond grew stronger when they joined forces on Chloe Moriondo’s track “Dizzy,” which featured both Alfie and Thomas. After discussing a joint tour for a while, they are finally making it happen this November!
Alfie recently released his sophomore album Mellow Moon in May, so it’s very likely that he will play songs from this project live while on tour. On the other hand, Thomas released his new EP Victoria in March.
Tickets for the tour are available now here. Go get yours before they sell out!

A Little Bit About Them – First, Alfie!
Since the release of his debut single “Like An Animal” in 2018, the UK’s Alfie Templeman has pushed boundaries like no other teenager, deftly combining indie-boy-next-door aesthetics with peerless musicianship. Entirely self-taught and playing no less than eleven instruments, his love of universe building, both aesthetically and musically, shone through on 2021’s mini-album Forever Isn’t Long Enough.
Alfie has over 200 million streams worldwide and will be part of his hero Todd Rundgren’s forthcoming album.
Born in London and raised in Melbourne, Thomas Headon dreamed of moving back to the city to pursue music and was told by his mom that he had a year to get a “proper job,” otherwise he would have to return home. Arriving in London just before the pandemic hit, Thomas started to build a community online – blowing up on TikTok with 18M likes and nearly 450K followers to date – with his off-kilter live sessions, tongue-in-cheek charm, and remarkable songwriting ability.
Thomas was also handpicked by Elton John to support him at his BST Hyde Park show in London, recently supported Sigrid on her European tour, and played sold-out UK, Australian, and North American headline tours.
