Obama books out Two Door Cinema Club show

The US President has previously expressed his fondness for Two Door Cinema Club, but now reports have surfaced he’s bought almost every ticket to the Irish band’s upcoming gig in Washington.

By snapping up the lion's share of tickets, supposedly as a treat to his staff, Barack Obama has forced the trio (Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird and Sam Halliday) to add an additional October date in the American capital.

A source (reliable we’re sure) told The Sun: “Alex was delighted to hear their US gig had been practically booked out by Barack and his team. He thinks it’s mad the President of the United States has their tunes on his iPod. You can’t get a much bigger fan than that.”

Two Door Cinema Club are touring Australia for the Falls and Southbound festivals near New Year's, and are set to release sophomore album Beacon this Friday, August 31. You can stream the album at The Music Network.
