The Naked and Famous are going on a pretty substantial tour of the UK next month (yeah, tomorrow is November…can you believe it?!?) and we want to celebrate the Kiwis coming over with giving away tickets to three of their shows. If you recall, we gave away tickets to TNAF’s London and Manchester shows a couple week ago, but this time, we’re giving away a pair each of their Birmingham HMV Institute (Saturday 19th November), Cambridge Junction (Sunday 20th November) and Norwich Waterfront (Monday 21st November). Want to win and feel lucky? Then you’ll want to enter…

First, enter your name and email address in the form below, so we have a way to contact you if you win. Second, choose which show you want to win tickets for. Third, tell us the name of the Naked and Famous’s debut album, released in 2010. We’ll choose the winners from all the correct entries. Entries must be received by noon British time on Thursday, 10 November 2011. Good luck!

To buy tickets to the shows not sold out yet, use this Gigs and Tours link.

This contest is now closed and the winners will be contacted by email shortly.
