The Prisoners Announce London Roundhouse Show

And here's how you can get tickets...

Cult heroes The Prisoners will play London’s Roundhouse next year.

The band took hold of garage punk and British R&B aspects, constructing a deeply influential catalogue. Debut album ‘A Taste Of Pink’ became a word of mouth success, while follow-ups such as ‘The Last Fourfathers’ spawned a legion of imitators.

The Charlatans borrowed from the band’s keyboard drenched songwriting – frontman Tim Burgess cited The Prisoners and New Order as the best groups of the 80s – while Inspiral Carpets also named the Kent group as an influence.

Keyboard player James Taylor has enjoyed an incredible 30 year career in jazz and funk, while singer Graham Day has forged multiple groups – The Solarflares and Planet are worth checking out, while Graham Day & The Gaolers released an album through Damaged Goods earlier this year.

The Prisoners briefly reformed in the mid 90s, releasing two songs via super-fan Steve Lamacq’s Deceptive imprint. Re-uniting for a short flurry of shows just before Christmas, The Prisoners will now play their biggest headline show yet.

Hitting London’s Roundhouse on May 24th 2024, pre-sale for tickets has just opened. It’s priced at £40 for a floor ticket, and £50 for seated. General sale opens this Friday (July 28th).

Support on the night will come from a DJ set courtesy of Steve Lamacq.
