Miles Kane, & Palma Violets: NME’s Legendary Awards Tour Visits Brighton

Django Django, Miles Kane, Palma Violets And Peace are on the bilol for the legendary NME Awards Tour 2013, which visits Brighton Dome, on Thursday 21st February.


The NME Awards Tour has been instrumental in launching the careers of some of the biggest acts in music today, including Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and Florence and the Machine, and 2013 is set to be one of the best years yet.

Critically acclaimed Django Django will be headliners following a self-titled debut album that has been widely praised and was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize, and they"re ready to bring their modern psychedlia to the masses.

One of the stars of 2012, Miles Kane takes the main support slot on the NME Awards Tour, bringing his boundless energy and charisma to the stage in advance of his forthcoming second album.



Having made a huge name for himself in the past year, Miles has established himself as a tour de force in the live arena, performing tracks from his Top 20 debut, "Colour of The Trap", including singles "Rearrange", "Come Closer" & the frenzy-inducing "Inhaler".

NME editor, Mike Williams said:

"2012 has been an incredible year for music, and 2013 promises to be even better, not least for Django Django, Miles Kane, Palma Violets and Peace, the four amazing bands heading up the NME Awards Tour 2013.

"This is undoubtedly one of the strongest and most exciting bills we"ve ever put together, and I can"t wait for it all to get started!"


South London"s Palma Violets emerged from nowhere in 2012 to become one of the most hyped and exciting new bands in a decade, and after a few shows in their basement and fewer on the road, they"ve proved that they"re worth it.

Singles "Best of Friends" and "Last of the Summer Wine" are taken from the band"s forthcoming album, which is currently being recorded with Pulp bassist Steve Mackey.



Taking the prestigious NME Awards Tour opening slot are Birmingham"s Peace.

The band gained high praise for clever, confident and ambitious debut EP Delicious, and have recently toured with Manic Street Preachers and The Mystery Jets. The band"s brand new single "Wraith" is released on Columbia Records on 13 January.

Tickets are on general sale now. See brightondome.org for more details.
