The tour's changed, so it's no longer Dec 11, but Dec 12 at the Dirty Water Club, Boston Music Rooms, Islington, London. Then 13-Dec Old Blue Last, London, and 14-Dec Hoxton Bar and Grill, London.
From the press release:
King Khan & The Shrines have been spreading their love like peanut butter since 1999. A youngblood King Khan on his royal buddhistic journey decides to sow some wild oats in Germany, he finds true love and fulfills his life long dream of leading a super bad ass 10 piece soul inferno!!!!
“I didn’t just want the audience to have an aural orgasm… I wanted an EYEGASM too!!!” - King Khan.
The line-up includes 60 year-old Chicago-born, Ron Streeter (the live-percussionist of Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and many other Soul-Legends), a horn section consisting of Simon Wojan (the mastermind behind Kranky Records recording artists Cloudland Canyon), Ben Ra (Germany’s John Coltrane), and famous French rockabilly saxophonist Big Fred Rollercoaster. The rhythm section of the Sensational Shrines has been called “a German/French version of the Freak Brothers”.
