King King to release 3-disc live collection (and tour in November)

king-king-king-king-liveManhaton Records are pleased to announce the release of King King’s very first live album “King King Live” – released on Friday 21st October 2016. King King’s first-ever live album dovetails the band’s upcoming November 2016 UK tour with special guests Broken Witt Rebels.

A Deluxe Edition 3-disc set, available now to pre-order at, includes two CDs that captures the live energy of King King’s sold-out hometown concert at O2 ABC in Glasgow on 14th May 2016, plus a bonus DVD film of the band performing to a sold-out crowd at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on 13th April 2016.

The wife and I attended that Glasgow show and, aside from the stifling heat in the venue which meant that we had to leave towards the end of the encore or melt into pink puddles, it was an absolutely incredible evening of entertainment. We’re looking forward to hearing the album as much as anyone!

Says King King’s lead singer and guitarist, Alan Nimmo:

We are excited about ‘King King Live’ because it’s the first time we’ve ever released a live album. It’s a great testament to how our audiences drive us on to perform to the best of our abilities. The audience reaction to the live performances is amazing. This release couldn’t have been possible without them.

King King Glasgow 2016 1King King recently won five awards at the 2016 British Blues Awards including Best Album (“Reaching For The Light”), Best Vocalist (Alan Nimmo), Best Bass Player (Lindsay Coulson), Best Song (“Rush Hour”) and Best Songwriter.
