The Kooks hit the road & announce their long awaited return to Belfast, playing the Mandela Hall on Sunday 1st March 2015.
After the success of their mini tour in May, complete with a sold out show at The Electric Ballroom, the band have already thrilled with a surprise slot at Glastonbury, an electric set at Ibiza/Mallorca Rocks and an all conquering appearance at Reading/Leeds.
The critics are already raving about the groups re-invention with Q saying in their 4* review that they are ‘back on track’, the Independent that they sound ‘fresh and thrilling’ and the Sunday Times Culture that the ‘radical, crash-and-bang R&B change of direction for Luke Pritchard and co. suits them’.
With production from rising star Inflo, ‘Listen’ has rejuvenated the band’s sound and purpose and spawned the radio favourites ‘Down’, ‘Around Town’ and latest one ‘Forgive and Forget’.
The Kooks are: Luke Pritchard – vocals and guitar, guitarist Hugh Harris, bassist Pete Denton and drummer Alexis Nunez.
