Enter Shikari to play Christmas double-date in Birmingham
Never ones to let the grass grow under their feet, Enter Shikari have announced a run of UK dates to see out the year.
These shows will see them play multiple dates in Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, London, Norwich and include two dates at Birmingham’s HMV Institute.
Following a summer of high-profile festival slots across Europe, including mainstage appearances at the likes of Rock Am Ring / Rock Im Park in Germany, T In The Park in Scotland, Frequency in Austria, Pukkelpop in Belgium and not forgetting Reading-Leeds, where the band play their biggest festival spot of their career thus far; the band will return to Australia for headline dates and then the USA for six weeks, before rounding off 2012 with a brace of Christmas shows in the UK.
Enter Shikari Christmas events have become somewhat the proverbial ‘stuff of legend’ over recent years (with the 2010 event having also been immortalised on the band’s Live From Planet Earth DVD/CD set from last year), so the decision was made to this year take the show out to the rest of the country, rather than dragging the rest of the country down to Hertfordshire.
According to promoters, “These dates are Enter Shikari’s first proper UK headline dates since a sold-out short run in March which culminated in a packed and triumphant show at London’s 5000 capacity Hammersmith Apollo.” The band will be joined by special guests for the all the dates are Toronto, Canada’s Cancer Bats and Brighton’s Engine-Earz Experiment.
