With their first No. 1 album on the Official UK Albums Chart in the bag, Enter Shikari announce a huge tour, with £1 of each ticket sale going to the Music Venue Trust.
The ‘A Kiss for the Whole World’ tour, set for February 2024, sees the band embark on their largest UK tour yet. Promoting their new album, after which the tour is named, the band are once again set for success, with the album landing them their first stint at the top of the UK album charts.

One key difference with the upcoming Uk tour is that the band have pledged that £1 per ticket sold will be donated to the Music Venue Trust in order to support grassroots venues in the cities the band tour through. Ensuring that grassroots venues are supported is a great step for the band, supporting smaller venues even when headlining arenas.
Commenting on the initiative, lead singer and producer Rou Reynolds states “Grassroots music venues in the UK are under existential threat. Every time we lose another one we lose a vital part of our culture. Bigger venues that benefit from the productive pipeline that grassroots venues provide need to support to these smaller venues, as do the artists that have come up through them. Enter Shikari stands with Music Venue Trust in their efforts to bring more solidity and community to our brilliant UK live music scene.”
Noted for their incredible live performances, including multiple awards for ‘Best Live Band’ from the likes of the Kerrang! Awards, AIM Awards and Heavy Music Awards, the band recently sold out a run of residency shows in the UK, Europe, USA and Japan, with tickets selling in minutes. Tackling some of the largest stages in their history as a band, Enter Shikari are sure to put on an exhilarating edition of the live show they are known for.
Joining Enter Shikari on the tour are Fever 333 and Noahfinnce, both of which have history with the band. Fever 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler first toured with Enter Shikari with his former band LetLive in 2011 on a tour of Europe. Noahfinnce, on the other hand, supported the band on one leg of their February 2023 UK residency shows.
Regarding what the tour has in store, Reynolds says “We cannot wait to step things up and present a huge new show to everyone. And we’re really looking forward to playing Wembley Arena for the first time! (Enter Shikari are on their way to Wembley. Can you imagine what we’re going to do to it?)
I’m buzzing to see the supports every night, too. We’ve known Jason for many years now, so we can’t wait to see the next step for Fever 333, and we had a great time with Noah on our residency tour earlier this year so simply had to have him back.”
