King Khan and BBQ Show bring their bad news Down Under
The raucous rock ‘n’ roll legends that are The King Khan & BBQ Show have announced Australian side shows to their Splendour In The Grass festival appearance.
They’ll play gigs in Sydney and Melbourne in celebration of their recently released album “Bad News Boys”, their first in five years.
The fabled duo of singer/guitarist King Khan and drummer/singer/guitarist Mark Sultan made their Australian debut at the request of Lou Reed & Laurie Anderson for the 2010 Vivid Festival - and promptly hit the wall.
The band infamously broke up at that Sydney Opera House show with the venue and event organisers branding their show, and Khan in particular, a security threat! Arguments ensued and well, that was that. They managed to reconvene some three years later though, and returned to Australia in 2013 for a series of sold-out shows.
“Bad News Boys” brings the manic-duo into the present.
Geelong's newly crowned garage-kings The Living Eyes will guest on both sideshows with further support from Los Tones (Sydney) and The Pink Tiles (Melbourne).
“Bad News Boys” is available now via In The Red via Rocket distribution.
