Rudimental announce February 2014 UK tour
Story by Jack Foley
HACKNEY dance quartet Rudimental have announced plans for a UK headline tour in February 2014.
The run of shows will kick off with two nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on February 14 and 15, followed by performances in Manchester and Glasgow before wrapping things up in Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall.
Rudimental (Piers Aggett, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and Leon Rolle) have continued to win rapturous responses for their live shows. Their exhilarating sold out gig at The Electric in Brixton last month saw the four core members painting vibrant scenes from a varied pallet, joined by live brass and percussion.
In what has been a busy year for them, Rudimental kicked off the summer with a special Finsbury Park gig alongside Dizzee Rascal and Stone Roses and a 30,000 strong crowd at Parklife in Manchester.
The band since continued with UK festival appearances at Glastonbury, Latitude, Global Gathering, Bestival and V Festival.
In October, the band will round off their year by taking their carnival-esque live show on the road for their second UK headline tour of 2013 which is now sold out.
The February 2014 headline shows are…
14 – Brixton O2 Academy
15 – Brixton O2 Academy
22 – Manchester O2 Apollo
24 – Glasgow O2 Academy
25 – Wolverhampton Civic Hall
Tickets for these dates go on sale on August 23 at 9am.
