Enter Shikari add extra show to UK tour

Enter Shikari have added a date to their upcoming UK tour.

They play Wrexham’s Central Station, Wales, on February 24, with support from Welsh band Falls.

Enter Shikari added the gig to their list of arena dates after drummer Rob Rolfe put pressure on the band to schedule more shows.

The band say in a tatement: “Rob hates a day off. He thinks they’re for the weak. The tour had too many days off in it, so he cracked the whip and now there’s a 500 capacity show in Wrexham, nestled between two arena shows.

“It’s not an ‘intimate warm-up show’, because the tour’s already started by then. There’s no purpose to it at all, other than giving the nice people of Wrexham a night out, seeing the awesome band Falls, and keeping Rob happy.

“This is Rolfy’s world, we just live in it.”

Last week, the band released footage of an acoustic performance filmed at London’s Alexandra Palace.

They also issued the official music video for single Redshift ahead of their UK tour, which kicks off in Glasgow on February 18. In March, the band head to Europe for a run of shows.
