Kula Shaker announce K anniversary tour (2016)

Story by Jack Foley

KULA Shaker have announced a major UK tour for December 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their massively successful album, K.

2016 marks 20 years since Kula Shaker exploded into the UK Britpop Scene with their million selling debut album K.

Their brand of rock with an esoteric mix of psychedelic riffs and ideas, full of Eastern mysticism and full-tilt performances made them the most unique (often termed eccentric) of the Brit Pop bands in the Nineties.

So far this year has seen the band back performing and every review of their live shows today, still revere their energy and intense live performances as witnessed at the Roundhouse earlier this year and subsequent dates.

Govinda sung entirely in Sanskrit, and the only Sanskrit top 10 UK single ever, is still chanted by the crowds that attend the shows. Tattva, Hey Dude through to the hit single Hush are all explosive tunes binding everyone in anarchic pogoing unity as the years fall away.

The current Kula Shaker line-up is comprised of Crispian Mills (vocals / guitars) / Alonza Bevan (bass) / Paul Winterhart (drums) and newer addition, Harry Broadbent (keyboards).

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 3 at 9am.
