Two Door Cinema Club - Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird and Sam Halliday - have now added a second date in the city to give fans a chance to see them too.

"Alex was delighted to hear their US gig had been practically booked out by Barack and his team," a source told The Sun.

"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 release new single 'Sleep Alone' on August 27, followed by their second studio album Beacon on September 3.

They recently announced plans for a headline UK tour in 2013.
