To celebrate a decade together as a band, The Kooks have announced their ‘Best Of’ Tour.
A self-described “indie pop” band, their music is primarily influenced by the 1960s British Invasion movement and post-punk revival of the new millennium. With songs described as “catchy as hell”, The Kooks have experimented in several genres including rock, Britpop, pop, reggae, and ska, at times being described as “a less severe Arctic Monkeys”.
Signed to Virgin Records just three months after forming, The Kooks broke into the musical mainstream with their debut album Inside In/Inside Out (2006). The album was ultimately successful, achieving quadruple platinum status in the UK within a year and also overseas in the form of a platinum certification in Australia and two times platinum in Ireland. The Kooks found themselves entering into mainstream media attention, with the band winning the award for Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006 and picking up a nomination at The Brit Awards for the single “She Moves in Her Own Way.
Now, with four studio albums, a number of massive world tours, awards and critical acclaim under their belts, it’s clear that the indie rockers’ ten-year anniversary is a signiﬁcant occasion to celebrate their momentous career so far with a tour of all of their greatest hits.
For the very first time in Israel, fans will be given the chance to see performances of classic hits, B-Sides as well as brand new music that the band have been dedicating time to in the studio this year.
