Frontman Rou Reynolds released the following statement about the tour: “Before booking an ‘arena-sized’ tour we wanted to wait until we were able to book as many ‘flat-floored’ standing venues as possible up and down the UK, as there’s nothing rock ’n’ roll about sitting at a gig 100 meters from the stage. As much as is possible, these venues should feel like normal Shikari shows but swollen in size – the communal aspect of the shows should still stay intact.”

“I also can’t tell you how much we’re looking forward to getting back into the sweet shop of production and lighting so we can make this a total assault on all the senses.”

Enter Shikari will play:

Glasgow, O2 Academy (February 18)
Edinburgh, Corn Exchange (19)
Nottingham, Capital FM Arena (20)
Bournemouth, International Centre (22)
Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena (23)
Manchester, Victoria Warehouse (25)
London, Alexandra Palace (27)
