Cage The Elephant’s UK tour this month, which includes their biggest London show to date at Brixton Academy, has now completely sold out.
Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage The Elephant truly lived up to that billing at Reading and Leeds Festivals last year, completely packing out the Radio 1 / NME stage at both events and for many providing one of the most ‘’talked about’’ sets of the weekend.
Cage The Elephant’s current album ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’ has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the ‘Best Rock Album’ category. The album, their second to be nominated for a Grammy, was recently certified Platinum in the US.
Cage The Elephant tour dates:
- Mon 16 Jan Dublin Academy
- Tue 17 Jan Glasgow 02 ABC
- Thu 19 Jan Manchester Albert Hall
- Fri 20 Jan London 02 Academy Brixton
Cage the Elephant released their new single ‘Trouble’ through Columbia Records last month. ‘Trouble’ is taken from the band’s critically-acclaimed new album ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’, which was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys & The Arcs, mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Florence + the Machine) and recorded at Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, TN.
The band whose last sold-out UK tour featured numerous venue upgrades also appeared alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers in Belfast and Biffy Clyro in Glasgow as well as their storming Reading and Leeds appearances.
‘Trouble,’ the second single from Cage The Elephant’s fourth studio album ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’, topped the Alternative radio chart in US. In reaching #1, ‘Trouble’ became the band’s historic 7th Alternative #1.
They sit alongside the elite artists in radio format history – Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Green Day, U2 and Linkin Park – as the biggest airplay bands since the 1988 chart began and score the most Billboard Alternative Songs No. 1s (all seven) since 2010; Muse & The Black Keys follow with four #1s each in that time span.
In addition, Cage The Elephant extends its lead of most Alternative #1s in the past decade and becomes the first act to land three consecutive #1 Alternative singles in eight years, since Foo Fighters in 2007-08.
