Two time Grammy award winning band, Living Colour, are on the way back to our shores in May 2017 and fans will no doubt welcome their return. Last here in 2014, they were part of the Soundwave line-up and performed to packed out shows and rave reviews.
Their music is a creative fusion influenced by free jazz, funk, hard rock and heavy metal and their debut album, Vivid eventually became a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning success.
Living Colour’s instrumental prowess gave them a level of critical respect most other bands of that ilk were not afforded. Politically driven in their lyrics and eclectic & experimental in their sound, the band built up quite the following in their original eleven year run, picking-up two consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Hard Rock Performance and three MTV Video Music Awards.
Living Colour had gone on hiatus and the band was re-energised in 2003. Since then, Living Colour have remained an active unit, releasing two albums of new material and receiving raves for their incendiary live performances
Living Colour still stands as one of today’s finest hard rock, metal, funk, fusion bands – make sure you check them out.
