The Kooks wrap up US tour with sold-out shows

Brighton foursome a hit in New York

The Kooks will wrap up their US tour tonight with a show at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club.

The band performed the second of two sold out shows at New York’s Fillmore on Friday (May 11) in front of Brit-packed audience.

Hotly-tipped openers Illinois amply warmed-up the crowd, performing a string of tracks from their debut EP ‘What The Hell Do I Know?’ including ‘Headphones’ and ‘Bad Day’ before making way for the headliners.

Taking to the stage at around 10pm, The Kooks opened with mini-track ‘Seaside’ and tore through hit after hit from ‘Inside In/Inside Out’ such as ‘She Moves In Her Own Way’ and ‘See The World’.

Watched by an audience that included We Are Scientists bassist Chris Cain and Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows, the band wrapped up their set with ‘Sofa Song’.

They played:


‘See The World’

‘Eddie’s Gun’


‘Ooh La’

‘Come On Down’

‘Time Awaits’

‘She Moves In Her Own Way’





‘Always Where I Need To Be’

‘You Don’t Love Me’


‘Make Love’

‘Sofa Song’
