The band was offered to play as a warm-up for the Spice Girls during their reunion world tour 2007-8, but declined the offer, feeling that it would be "too weird" to suddenly play in front of a very large audience unfamiliar with the band's music.
It has often been associated with the Wonky Pop movement - having played the Wonky Pop Tour and DJ'd various Wonky Pop events. It is currently penned to play the Wonky Pop Xmas party in London.
Alphabeat performed at T in the Park 2008 on "Camper's Friday" and were announced in the line-up for the 2008 Roskilde Festival. It also performed at T4 on the beach, and at the "Summerfestival" in Klaksvik, Faroe Islands, in early August 2008, and also in October 2008, along with many other bands at the NEC in Birmingham for hundreds of young girlguides.
During late 2008, Alphabeat began a 22 gig tour of the UK and Holland, with many shows sold out.
In 2008, the band was planning to play select shows with American singer Katy Perry on her 2008 world tour. However, in March 2009, Alphabeat cancelled its appearances in support of her US tour. Its management has stated that it is instead working on its second album and will be touring the USA later in the year.
