Enter Shikari finally hit No.1 in the UK Official Charts with the band soon to head out on their biggest UK arena tour 

2023 is a big year for Enter Shikari. With their brand new LP ‘A Kiss for the Whole World’ recently dropping, the band are now announcing a huge UK arena tour to celebrate the release. 

They will be heading across the UK, hitting huge venues such as Wembley Arena, the First Direct Arena, Leeds and Cardiff’s International Arena. Despite these massive venues, the band is not losing sight of where they started. For every ticket sold, £1 will be donated to the Music Venue Trust in support of grassroots venues in each of the cities they travel to. 

‘A Kiss for the Whole World’ is the band’s 8th album and their first Official UK No. 1. Joining Enter Shikari on their epic tour will be Fever 333 and Noahfinnce. Reynolds expressed his excitement: “We cannot wait to step things up and present a huge new show to everyone. And we’re really looking forward to playing Wembley Arena for the first time! (Enter Shikari are on their way to Wembley. Can you imagine what we’re gonna do to it?).”

Tickets go on sale at 10am BST on Friday 5th May here.
