Enter Shikari announce HUGE UK tour

Now this is how you tour the UK!

Enter Shikari have announced a massive UK tour which included 28 dates in smaller and intimate venues including The Welly in Hull and the Cheese & Grain in Frome kicking off in December and finishing up in February 2019.

This tour is the first for a while from Shikari that’s not only big venues in major cities across the UK with lead singer Rou Reynolds explaining “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”

It’s a refreshing change of pace to see a big band such as Shikari take to the smaller venues and we definitely think other bands should look at following in their footsteps!

Fatherson announce Autumn tour
