Fronted by Bobby Gillespie, Primal Scream are best known for their anthemic hit album 'Screamadelica' and epic singles Rocks Off', 'Come Together', 'Loaded', and 'Country Girl'. The band recently stormed the Pyramid Stage at this years Glastonbury festival, cementing them as live music legends and one of the most exciting live acts of all time.
Primal Scream's latest album 'More Light' was released in May 2013 to critical acclaim, with the first single "It's Alright, It's OK" being championed by Absolute Radio. Primal Scream recently announced a short UK tour in support of 'More Light', in December. The indie legends will play London's Brixton Academy and Glasgow SECC, before finishing at Manchester Academy.
The gig will continue the legacy of phenomenal live music at the rock and roll hallowed grounds of Hard Rock Cafe London, which has seen acts such as Mystery Jets, Ben Howard, The Lumineers, Travis and The Vaccines play as part of the Absolute Radio sessions.
Absolute Radio DJ Sarah Champion said: "I can't wait for this one. Primal Scream are such a great band and played a massive part in the soundtrack to my teenage years. They're one of the best live acts around and to introduce them and watch them at the Hard Rock Cafe will be very special."
Marc Carey, European Director of Marketing for Hard Rock Cafe International has said: "Hard Rock Cafe London is the ultimate rock and roll venue, the perfect match for Primal Scream - I'm sure this gig won't disappoint!"
