Last week we alluded to the reveal of the latest #5GumExperience, and it gives me the warm and fuzzies to announce that it is official. On 19 April in Jozi and 20 April in Cape Town, The Kooks will headline the #5GumExperience and travel to our fine country for their first South African gig.
As with any previous #5GumExperience, tickets are not available for purchase, you can only apply for them via the 5 Gum Facebook page – www.facebook.com/5GumSA – adding a product barcode will grant you a double entry!
The Kooks are an English rock band formed in Brighton, East Sussex, in 2004. Signed to Virgin Records in 2006, the band released their debut quadruple platinum selling album “Inside In/Inside Out” followed in 2008 by their second album “Konk” which debuted at number one in the UK. The Kooks released a third album ‘Junk Of The Heart’ on September 12th. Having sold in excess of 3 million records worldwide”, this latest album sees the band reach new, soaring heights of musicianship.
The Kooks gained mainstream media attention with the band winning the award for Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2006, and picking up a nomination at The Brit Awards for the single “She Moves in Her Own Way. Looks like we are in for a treat as 5 Gum welcomes Luke Pritchard, Hugh Harris and Peter Denton to South Africa!
