King King Bring Classic Rock Back to The Atkinson

4th May 2017

The multi-award winning rock/blues band is back at The Atkinson this May with a back catalogue to die for, three radio hit singles, a nomination for Best New Band at the 2015 Classic Rock Awards and a UK arena tour supporting Thunder all behind them.

With 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 is 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

The special guests are a young UK based rock band, Bad Touch.

Like most bands the early years were spend toiling away in local pubs playing covers of some rock classics whilst at the same time introducing some of their own compositions into an ever expanding set.

They were awarded an Exposure Music Award in 2012 for their live show. All in all things are looking very bright for these hard working guys. So if you’re into live music at its finest with the vibes of Led Zep and Black Crowes check them out whenever they play in your town or city – you will not be disappointed.
