Kele: a gripping stage presence in Bloc Party and alone.
Kele Tickets – Buy Here
Kele Okereke is the singer of Bloc Party. Or was. No one is completely sure what is going on with the band after they went on indefinite hiatus almost a year ago.
Kele went his own way, and has recorded and released a new album – The Boxer. As well as a similar album title to The National’s 2007 LP, the lead single Tenderoni carries the same name as the Chromeo effort from the same year. Still, Kele has certainly gone his own way with his sound – it is unlike The National, Chromeo, or indeed Bloc Party.
The Boxer is a fine dance album, its electro ambition bursting at the seams. A new energy has been unleashed in Kele as a live performer too. Free of the shackles of holding a guitar in concert, he covers more ground on stage than a nervous comedian. His UK tour ought to be a spectacular series of concerts, and Kele tickets are on sale now for the following dates:
November 15th 2010 – Birmingham HMV Institute
November 16th 2010 – Glasgow Arches
November 18th 2010 – Manchester Ritz Ballroom
November 19th 2010 – London Electric Ballroom
November 20th 2010 – Bristol Motion
