BIGkids announce UK headline tour
"It's madder than Madness. It's so catchy, Rizzle Kicks will kick themselves" - Guardian
"Just what predictable pop music needs!" - Independent
"Picking up the tempo at any party, BIGkids' hi-NRG, toe tapping beats feel good" - i-D Magazine
After selling out their debut headline show at The Ballyhoo in London last month and setting tongues wagging with their performances at Camden Crawl and The Great Escape Festival, the excitement and expectation around BIGkids continues to grow. Today, as the countdown continues to the release of their much anticipated new single 'Superhero' on June 17th, the duo announce their debut UK headline October tour.
Kicking off in Birmingham at The Rainbow on October 11th, the tour will take in Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol and Southampton before heading back to London's Hoxton Bar and Kitchen for the closing night on October 17th. Tickets will be available from June 15th - ticket links below.
With their debut album poised for a late summer release, the October tour will follow high-profile festival slots at Lovebox, Lee Festival, Standon Calling, Bestival, Nass Festival, Secret Garden Party and Y-Not - see full festival dates below.
Back in October the DIY duo, Ben Hudson and Rosie Bones, posted their homemade video for debut single 'Drum In Your Chest' online causing a huge stir across the blogosphere. In the few months that have followed, BIGkids' star has continued to rise exponentially with support from the likes of the Guardian, Independent, Evening Standard and NME, sell out headline shows and festival performances, a high profile support slot with Panic! At The Disco at Brixton Academy and an exclusive sync for Stella McCartney’s Olympic fashion range campaign.
This summer BIGkids will be bringing the party to somewhere near you, and it's not one to be missed!
