When it comes to all-out garage rock spectacle, nobody holds a candle to King Khan and the Shrines. Invariably dressed in an insane get-up involving underwear, a cape, and a headpiece, Khan takes the stage with his band the Shrines to deliver rollicking sets of stomping tunes infused with psychedelic elements. Whether he's leading the charge on favorites like "Born to Die" and "Bite My Tongue", soaring into the crowd with a stage dive, or egging on the band's resident go-go dancer Boombarella, Khan puts on a show ticket buyers won't want to miss on the band's latest tour.
Formed in 1999 by Canadian musician Arish Ahmad Khan, King Khan and the Shrines got an early popularity boost from their frontman's over-the-top antics at the band's live shows. They made their album debut in 2000 with Spread Your Love Like Peanut Butter, supporting the album with extensive touring that further established their reputation as a powerhouse live act. Critically acclaimed albums like Mr. Supernatural (2004) and The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines (2008) followed, as the band continued to generate buzz with their spectacular live shows. Riding high on the 2013 release of Idle No More, the band will deliver another series of epic performances on the latest tour.
