WIN: Guest list passes to see Enter Shikari on the Grand Pier
PUBLISHED: 09:55 24 January 2013
ONE of the hottest bands in Britain today will be playing a gig on Weston’s Grand Pier in April – and we have guest list passes to give away.
Enter Shikari are renowned for their incendiary live shows, and have enjoyed a meteoric ascent over the past 18 months.
Their third album A Flash Flood Of Colour was named Kerrang Magazine’s album of the year, and end-of-year acclaim from a number of other respected music experts.
They also played a sell-out UK tour which earned them two Kerrang awards for their live shows, and saw them named Best Band Of Reading/Leeds by NME readers.
Now, ahead of a break from touring to begin work on a new album scheduled for a 2014 release, Enter Shikari have revealed a final wave of dates in a new Off The Beaten Track tour.
Among them will be a debut date in Weston – part of a strategy to get closer to the fans who have catapulted the St Albans quartet to such stellar heights.
The band said: “We speak to a lot of people who come to the big shows and we’re very aware that a large number of them travel distances to come and see us.
“Not everyone lives in a major city, so we figured it was time we went out and tried to visit some people a little closer to home.
“It’s going to be awesome to be in small rooms and up-close-and-personal with crowds again, plus visiting some new places along the way.”
Tickets for their Grand Pier gig on April 10 are now on sale, priced £16.50, from www.seetickets.com
