Review: Bad Touch / King King – Mick Jagger Centre

Review: Bad Touch / King King – Mick Jagger Centre

April 29th 2017

Reviewer: Dan Mann

Well it was great to be back at the Mick Jagger Centre, always a nice venue for gigs. Kicking off the evening’s proceedings was Norfolk band Bad Touch. This was my first opportunity to see them live, really like their releases, their latest being ‘Truth Be Told‘, so I was really looking forward to hearing their material live.

And boy they didn’t disappoint. If I’m honest I’d say that they were even better live. Yes they’re likened to The Black Crowes etc but they certainly have their own style. I did wonder how they went down with certain sections of the crowd as they bordered on hard rock at times rather than blues rock. However talking to friends that were also there, they found the band as entertaining as I did.

It was good to see how many people made the effort to watch the support band rather than just prop up the bar.

A worthy opening act and one that’s on the rise.

And so to the headliners, King King.  After the issues that have affected front man Alan Nimmo‘s vocals, there wasn’t much evidence on the night, Alan himself stating that he was meant to be taking it easy!

King King should be huge, consummate professionals with some great albums already under their belts/kilt and with a new album on the way, they entertained the audience 110% without any let up for the whole set. With an enthusiastic crowd singing along, the band delivered one of the best gigs of the year for me so far.


KING KING Announce April/May 2017 UK Tour

King King - Live

King King are pleased to announce a raft of new UK tour dates in April and May 2017. The tour kicks off on Thursday 20th April at The Cube in Corby, Northants. All tickets are priced £20, are on sale on Monday 12th December from www.thegigcartel.com and the 24 Hour Box Office: 0844 478 0898.

The tour dovetails the release of a brand new single taken from King King’s upcoming fourth studio album, and follow up to 2015’s multi-award winning Reaching For The Light. The new album is scheduled for release in early September 2017.

King King’s first-ever live album ‘King King – Live‘ was recently voted #1 at Blues Rock Review’s “Top 5 Best Live Albums of 2016”.

The live album triumph follows King King’s recent win of five awards at the British Blues Awards including Best Male Vocal (Alan Nimmo), Best Bass Player (Lindsay Coulson), Best Song (Rush Hour), Best Album (Reaching for the Light) and Best Songwriter. October 2016 saw the release of King King’s first live album “King King Live” which hit the No.1 spot in Amazon’s Best Sellers Blues Chart.

Says King King’s frontman, Alan Nimmo, “We’re really excited to perform the new single live. It’s rockier than our previous material, but it still has an inherent King King sound to it. The new single is a nice taster from the upcoming album.
