Fresh from whirlwind tours with Mumford And Sons, Laura Marling and Noah And The Whale, the ‘Glam Folk’ hero of new music, King Charles is coming to Huddersfield to perform in legendary nightclub Tokyo.
Included in MTV’s Brand New For 2012 List and the first Brit to win Nashville’s prestigious international song writing competition, King Charles will be rocking Tokyo on February 24th with his unique brand of theatrical indie, to kick start a summer that is likely to see him making appearances at many of the UK’s major festivals.
Brought up in West London and overcoming a near fatal skiing accident to return to the music scene with new single ‘Loveblood’, (out on February 20th), this appearance is his first in Huddersfield since 2010, and will see him play ingsongs off his forthcoming LP, expected to have a summer release.
King Charles will be supported by some local talent in the form of Tokyo Corner and AUDIT control, a Huddersfield based five piece fresh of the back of a Yorkshire tour who are ready and raring to play their hometown:
‘‘Tokyo is a great venue for live music, we’ve had some messy night's downstairs a few years ago and some great times. We've been working hard this winter on a new set that’s sounding massive. We played with King Charles when he last came to Huddersfield, Love Lust is a great song and we’re really excited about the gig.’’ – Joe Sheldon, Guitarist in Audit Control
In the true spirit of Tokyo, ticket prices are a student friendly £8, great value for money considering the four band bill. This February event marks an increase in Live events for the club, who recently hosted Katy B and Shaun Ryder, and will be having a reformed Beautiful South next month.
