Enter Shikari confirm Download warm-up show

Enter Shikari have confirmed they’ll play an intimate warm-up show ahead of their appearance at this year’s Download festival.

They appear at the Motion Club, Bristol, on June 12, before headlining the Second Stage at Donington on June 14. Tickets go on sale on March 11 (Wednesday) at midday via the band’s website.

Frontman Rou Reynolds last month reacted to a video of him attacking a member of the band’s audience in Portsmouth by explaining: “The ticket price for an Enter Shikari show doesn’t include free access to my gonads.”

The band’s fourth album, The Mindsweep, was launched last year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
