About King King

Due to Allan Nimmo's vocal chord problems, this concert has been postponed to 26 January 2018.

“Hot, Blue and Righteous” Classic Rock

Having scored three radio hit singles on Planet Rock with the songs Crazy, Hurricane, and most recently, Rush Hour, King King received a nomination for Best New Band at the 2015 Classic Rock Awards. King King followed up with an UK arena tour supporting Thunder.

They are a multi-award winning rock/blues band with a back catalogue to die for. King King are a wonderfully talented bunch, with a reputation for a chemistry that lies, not only between band members, but also between band and audience. They work the audience like stadium pros, yet there is also an intimacy and genuineness to their performance that makes the whole crowd feel part of the show.

King King are no ordinary band. What makes them way above average is the powerhouse rhythm section of Wayne Proctor on drums and Lindsay Coulson on bass, coupled with the dazzling fingers of Bob Fridzema on keyboards. This band underscores Alan Nimmo, a virtuoso frontman possessed of an almost impolite level of charisma and the talent to back it up. Nimmo’s full-blooded style, technical brilliance and impassioned vocals are infectious and instantly recognizable. There’s no smoke and mirrors behind this groups rise: just killer songs, performed with true passion, by a fist-tight line-up.

“In footballing terms, King King are the musical equivalent of Real Madrid or Barcelona - supremely talented individuals who come together to produce a compelling performance” (Lancashire Telegraph)
