Academy Events Present Electric Six at O2 Academy Liverpool
Plus Special Guests
The notorious six-piece rock band from Detroit, Michigan, Electric Six are coming over to the UK for a series of tour dates that see them playing shows in Sheffield, Edinburgh, Manchester and in Liverpool on Thursday the 4th of December at The O2 Academy. The UK shows follow an extensive journey round the US, Russia and other European countries that is in celebration of their newest album ‘Human Zoo’.
Famed for their, high energy fusion of punk rock, garage, disco and many other styles, Electric Six have had major success with singles like ‘Danger! High Voltage’ and ‘Gay Bar’, both of which have reached the top 5 in the UK Singles Chart when they were released on their debut album ‘Fire’ in 2003. This album went Gold and paved a way for their further 10 albums and a handful of other successful singles likes ‘Dance Commander’ and ‘Radio Ga Ga’.
The energetic style Electric Six have become reckoned with is inspired by the likes of The Talking Heads, Freddie Mercury, Devo, Queen and KISS amongst a plethora of other musical influences. Usually awash with dirty, macho flippant lyrics and themes that the band have described themselves as about ‘absolutely nothing’, their music might be meaningless, but it sure is powerful and a lot of fun.
