Enter Shikari UK Tour

Enter Shikari have announced their longest UK tour ever, kicking off in December 2018 with shows running into next year.

Following their Best Album win at the Kerrang! Awards for Top 5 album ‘The Spark’, the alt rock band have announced a huge 28-date ‘Stop The Clocks’ tour, including stops in stops in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and more.

Lead vocalist Rou Reynolds had the following to say about the extensive tour, “Our most recent UK tours have been of the “eight or nine shows in arenas / big sheds” variety, so we consciously wanted to switch it up a bit going into 2019. Enter Shikari have always kept dipping back into more intimate venues over the years, no matter how big our headline shows have become. That’s where we cut our teeth. The heat-sweat-and-visceral-human-connection of smaller gigs is every bit the equal of the impressive-scale-and-expensive-production of arena shows. We’ve never seen the latter as an evolution away from the former. They exist on opposite sides of the same coin for us. It’s also no secret that austerity and the looming potential disaster of Brexit have seen people having to be a lot more careful with how they spend their money. With things being what they are right now, it doesn’t seem fair for only those who can afford the travel to a major city for a night out (plus the inevitable other costs that go along with it) to be able to see a show. Playing 28 dates across the UK is our way of taking what we do back to as many people as possible, in the most intimate and direct way.”

So far this festival season has seen Enter Shikari rock crowds at the likes of Germany’s Rock Am Ring / Rock Im Park and Vainstream festivals, Austria’s Novarock and Czech Republic’s Rock For People. Alongside a string of sold out intimate warm-up UK shows, they also performed a headline set at 2000 Trees Festival and will hit Boomtown Fair next month.
