The King Blues / April and May 2009 UK Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 18th February 2009 at 9:18 pm
 

King Blues (side)The King Blues have announced a tour for April and May around the UK’s Student orientated venues.

Hailed as “The most exciting live band in Britain.” by Kerrang, but when it comes to describing their music The King Blues are a hard to pigeonhole semi-acoustic punk/rap outfit who sound like the Pogues one minute, the Streets the next, or like one of those US pop-punk bands who emerged in the wake of Green Day. Then again, sometimes they might sound like a skiffle band or a ska band, at others like an agit-prop electro-rock act like Asian Dub Foundation.

Tickets are on sale now for all dates, costing about £8 each it seems.

Tuesday 28th April 2009 – Derby Students Union
