The Boxer Rebellion tickets

The Boxer Rebellion tickets - The Boxer Rebellion Tour Dates

Tour/Concert Schedule

The Boxer Rebellion has become one of the most talked about groups in the country. They have been topping the charts since 2001, and have continued to make their mark on the music world with every album release and over-the-top performance. This English brotherhood of spectacularly gifted musicians and vocalist from across the pond are proving their chart-topping success was no fluke. They have produced one EP and five studio albums. They are currently on tour, performing their latest music from their newest album, Promises, which has become a great success for the band. Although the band seems unassuming and may look like the typical indie band from the outside, The Boxer Rebellion is so much more.

While their recorded music can sometimes be understated as it seeps into your psyche, their live performances are decidedly different. They are full of energy and have fans up on their feet, swaying to the best this indie band has created. They have been bringing their killer music to the masses since 2001, and have toured all over the globe. They have made stops in the US, Europe and have been featured performers at some of the biggest music festivals in the country. The Boxer Rebellion is currently touring the US, with one stop in the UK.


Trivia

When TBR was first starting out, they were performing in contests, backing up legendary musicians like Lenny Kravitz and earning the praise of critics and fans. The attention they received for their early projects made them a hot commodity in the music business. They were soon signed by Alan McGee of the Poptones label. The band released their first single "Watermelon," their first self-titled EP and the LP Exits through the label. But, unfortunately the label soon imploded, leaving the band without the support it needed to support its sophomore effort. After the catastrophic blow to their the funds, the band decided they would self-produce their albums from now on. They began by lining up support gigs for the Editors, Lenny Kravitz and Gary Numan, while still working on their own music. Eventually, their hard work paid off, and they have continued to remain a self-sufficient band to this day.


About the Artist

The Boxer Rebellion was born out of a friendship between vocalist Nathan Nicholson and guitarist Todd Howe who met through an online posting for musicians. Nicholson had just moved to London after the death of his mother, and was looking for another musician to help him start a band. After meeting Howe, the two began working on the beginnings of what would later become TBR. They began performing around London and soon attracted the attention of local drummer Piers Hewitt. He had just graduated from London Music School and was looking for his first project. The band added Nicholson's childhood friend Rob Loflin, who played bass. Loflin was later replaced by the current bassist Adam Harrison, who is also a graduate of London Music School.

The band released a few EPs as Slippermen, but found little success. With little to show for the work they had put into the project, the band decided to re-invent themselves and become The Boxer Rebellion instead. And it wasn't just their name that changed. They also developed a new sound that had greater mass appeal. They started to build a fan base and began booking gigs. They opened for A Perfect Circle in 2003 and Lenny Kravitz and The Cooper Temple Clause in 2004, which made critics and fans take notice. Soon after the band signed with the Poptones record label and released their first self-titled EP. Their star continued to rise, and they were soon producing more projects.

Although their label soon went under, the band remained loyal to the cause and continued to write and record their music, earning money from support gigs and appearances. They were soon embarking on their first headlining tour and releasing their first studio album. They've never looked back, and their music has never been better. Their latest album, Promises, "promises" to be a major addition to their amazing repertoire. The only thing better than listening to them on your iPod, is listening to them in person.


Breakthrough Performance

While music fans in London had already taken notice of The Boxer Rebellion before 2003, the band was not widely known before that time. They struggled to find their footing, performing wherever they could land a gig. But their luck changed when they earned support gigs opening for A Perfect Circle, Lenny Kravitz and The Cooper Temple Clause in 2003 and 2004. They became almost an overnight sensation when critics caught wind of their tremendous talent. It was these performances that served as the turning point in TBR's career. Today, they are one of the most sought-after musical groups in the world, and they have never been better.


Fan Experience

Although The Boxer Rebellion can sometimes be thought of as the mellow, understated indie group, they are so much more than that. When they take the stage, they become a larger-than-life stage show with all of the energy and grandiosity of bands like Coldplay. They are like a rock band in an indie band's skin. Lead singer Nathan Nicholson can belt out the band's signature songs like any number of chart-topping rockers. And how many indie guitarists can wail on their guitar while it dangles precariously on the back of their shoulders? Not many. This one-of-a-kind band promises a unique concert experience that will have even the most cynical music fan believing in the power of a great performance.
