Enter Shikari have announced a show at Preston Guild Hall as part of their huge UK tour.Advertisement
The band will perform at the venue as part of their 28-date UK tour on Saturday, January 26, 2019.
Rou Reynolds, Enter Shikari frontman, said: “Our most recent UK tours have been of the ‘eight or nine shows in arenas / big sheds’ variety, so we consciously wanted to switch it up a bit going into 2019.
“Enter Shikari have always kept dipping back into more intimate venues over the years, no matter how big our headline shows have become. That’s where we cut our teeth. The heat-sweat-and-visceral-human-connection of smaller gigs is every bit the equal of the impressive-scale-and-expensive-production of arena shows.
“We’ve never seen the latter as an evolution away from the former. They exist on opposite sides of the same coin for us.

“It’s also no secret that austerity and the looming potential disaster of Brexit have seen people having to be a lot more careful with how they spend their money.
“With things being what they are right now, it doesn’t seem fair for only those who can afford the travel to a major city for a night out (plus the inevitable other costs that go along with it) to be able to see a show.
“Playing 28 dates across the UK is our way of taking what we do back to as many people as possible, in the most intimate and direct way.”
Tickets are £27 and go on sale on Friday, July 13 from here.
