King King have confirmed that Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin’ Stones will be joining them as the very special guest on their upcoming April 2020 UK tour.
Fronted by the eponymous 21-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Hannah Wicklund, last October Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin’ Stones wowed the UK on the Planet Rock Roadstars Tour with Piston and Gorilla Riot.
Prior to that, King King met Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin’ Stones on Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea Mediterranean Cruise in August 2019 and are now looking forward to hitting the road with them.

Opening at Cardiff Y Plas on Friday 3rd April, King King’s tour calls in at Salisbury, Bexhill, Bury St Edmunds, Sheffield, Glasgow, Manchester, York, Birmingham and Newcastle before wrapping up at London Electric Ballroom on Friday 17th April.

King King frontman Alan Nimmo says: “I am really looking forward to embarking on our 2020 Uk tour as it feels like ages since we have had the pleasure and opportunity to play on home turf for our amazing and loyal fans! I’m especially excited to get out there and properly showcase the new line-up too!
“There’s a great atmosphere and camaraderie among us in the band and we’re at our happiest when we’re together on the road so I know that energy will transcend outwards to the audience when we take to the stage.
“We’ve been working hard in Morse code studios in Glasgow putting together our new album which will be released later in the year, but we can’t wait to let our fans hear some new music live in April!
“I’m very pleased with how the new songs and album is shaping up and how the song writing quality and standard has gone up again. No matter what we do… the King King sound is always there! Can’t wait to see all those familiar King King family faces in the crowd!”
