The Kooks Fresh into their mammoth ‘comeback’ tour of the UK, The Kooks presented a night of nostalgia, rock ‘n’ roll and explosive energy at their sold out gig at Birmingham’s O2 Academy on Saturday night. The pop-rock band made up of Brighton boys Luke Pritchard, Hugh Harris, Alexis Nunez, and Peter Denton, are playing 17 gigs to coincide with the release of their current single ‘Be Who You Are’ whilst they ready us for the release of their fifth album, treating us to a taste of what to expect.

The Kooks Walking into spacious venue of the o2 Academy, I fight my way through the crowds, as this jam packed setting is fit to burst. With a bevvy in hand I hear a thunder of screams as The Kooks enter the stage! Pop rock at its best, the band kick starts the night with ‘Around Town’ which instantly sets the audience off, singing and dancing along.

The Kooks Hit The Road I very clearly remember the year The Kooks brought out 'Inside In / Inside Out'. It was the summer I went to my very first music festival (Oxegen, Ireland) and I recall them playing the NME stage in frightening detail; a highly rowdy crowd, pints flying everywhere, teenagers pushing and shoving each other around to the point the band had to stop playing to calm everyone down. Boys and girls were all there to bounce along to the ridiculously catchy, summery, pop-rock. They were a completely accessible indie band with boy band good looks. It was cool to like them, and most people actually really did. It was no real wonder that album performed so well, putting them firmly on the map.
