Chris Hawkins from BBC 6 Music reveals new live music night ‘Awesome Friends’, headlined by The K's!

If you haven’t encountered The K’s impassioned bangers, catch up: In 2023, they sold out a UK Tour and every ticket for their Manchester Academy show in 24 hours. They opened the Main Stage at Neighbourhood Festival, opened the Isle of Wight Festival Main Stage, as well as the Leeds and Reading & Kendal Calling Festival Main stages. They tore the roof down at Tramlines, with hundreds unable to get into the big top to see them play and have played before Liam Gallagher in Greece, as well as supporting Mancunian stalwarts James in Spain and US icons Blondie on a large UK outdoor show.

This pulsing live reputation shouldn’t overlook the sophistication that gives The K’s their immediately identifiable blueprint though. Their debut single Sarajevo is one of the few rock & roll songs to namecheck Austro-Hungary, whilst notching up over 4 million streams in the process. and their 2023 release ‘Hoping Maybe’ has become a phone-lights-on live anthem that reached No.2 on the iTunes chart, kept off the top spot only by the unbudging Miley Cyrus’ record breaking single ‘Flowers’.

With each new release The K’s keep growing. A cult sensation, an irresistible, irrefutable spirit, welcoming to anyone who wants to join and escape into a better, more hopeful world. After all, they’ll be playing all your favorite songs.. “put em on, put em on, put em on, put em on”.
