THE KING KHAN AND BBQ SHOW TO FINISH OUT 2008 ON NORTH AMERICAN TOUR!
King Khan and Mark Sultan (aka BBQ) get together to bring their show on the roadŠ
HEAR THE KING KHAN AND BBQ SHOW:
King Khan and BBQ join forces for a US tour hitting the road October thru early December 2008. Their electrifying live show, once again proves that rock and roll still has a beating pulse, it’s just harder to find under all the cumulative flab.
Lucky you, the King Khan and BBQ Show will grace our good shores and dumpy rock club stages, this time in support of their new Fat Possum released 45 rpm 7″ single, “ANIMAL PARTY” b/w “God of Raisins”.
The limited edition, one-of-a-kind single features a gatefold sleeve with a 15 page-coloring book featuring the artwork of renown Montreal Artist Mathieu Trudel, will be in stores during the first week of November. Khan (Vocals, guitar) and Sultan (Vocals, guitar, kick drum, and snare) two heavies in their own right, have been making music together and separately for over 15 years. Mark is known for his work as the one-man band extraordinaire BBQ, and Khan with his Fabulous Shrines. Years ago the two joined forces in the now legendary Spaceshits. As The King Kahn and BBQ show, the two bring their combined efforts on a cross-country tour that takes them from the mean city streets of Detroit all the way to the frozen barren plains of Ottawa.
Because they each stay busy with their own respective bands, recordings and tours, a King Khan and BBQ Show tour is about as rare as a Sarah Palin visit to an international departures terminal.
Mark Sultan, aka BBQ, currently resides in Montreal, and makes music as Mark Sultan. He has a completed new record, the follow up to his acclaimed “Sultanic Verses” LP(In The Red), due for release in the Fall. Mark has also played in Los Sexareenos, The Mind Controlls, The Spaceshits (With Khan) and as BBQ solo.
King Khan is currently living in Berlin with his wife and 2 children, and has a second music project, the famed King Khan and the Shrines, a 10-piece band complete with horn section and go-go dancer. They are working on a new record and toured the USA for the first time this Summer (Which included a show stealing spot at the Pitchfork Music FestivalŠyou shoulda been there).
