To celebrate a decade together as a band, The Kooks have announced their ‘Best Of’ UK Tour to take place in 2017. The run of seventeen headline shows will kick off on 21 April in Manchester, before visiting cities such as Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Nottingham and Bristol, and will conclude with a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace on 13 May.
Since they burst onto the scene in 2006 with their unstoppable debut Inside In/Inside Out, which went 5x platinum last month, the Brighton based four-piece have gone from strength to strength.
Now, with three more studio albums, a number of massive world tours, awards and critical acclaim under their belts, it was clear that the indie rockers’ ten-year anniversary is a significant occasion to celebrate their momentous career so far with a tour of all of their greatest hits. Fans will be given the chance to see performances of classic hits, B-Sides as well as brand new music that the band have been dedicating time to in the studio this year.
Additionally, The Kooks have been warming up on the live circuit recently by hitting the road to perform shows across Europe and South America amongst various other international summer festivals.
