Psychedelic rockers Kula Shaker will play Norwich next month as part of a two-show warm-up ahead of a 2023 UK tour.
The four-piece – who burst on to the scene in the 1990s with anthems including Govinda, Knight On The Town and Hey Dude – released their sixth album, 1st Congregational Church Of Eternal Love And Free Hugs, earlier this year.
A 14-date UK trek starts in January, including a show at Cambridge Junction, but before that they play The Waterfront, Norwich, on Wednesday, December 7, and Shepherd’s Bush Empire the following night.
Kula Shaker have had a stable line-up over the years. Apart from a four-year hiatus around the turn of the century, Crispian Mills, Alonza Bevan and Paul Winterheart have been ever-presents, while keyboardist Harry Broadbent has been in the band since 2006.
