K’s Choice – 25 Year Anniversary Tour (sold-out)

K’s Choice komt in december terug naar Nederland voor een serie optredens. De shows staan in het teken van het vijfentwintigjarig bestaan van de band. De kaartverkoop voor deze bijzondere concerten start op zaterdag 25 maart om 10:00 uur.

K’s Choice, de Belgische band rond Sarah en Gert Bettens, bestaat dit jaar vijfentwintig jaar en is meer dan ooit alive and kicking. Er wordt uitgebreid stilgestaan bij het naderende jubileum. Naast de uitgebreide tour door Nederland verschijnt op vrijdag 24 maart het verzamelalbum ’25’. Naast alle bekende hits bevat dit album ook een gloednieuwe versie van wereldhit ‘Not An Addict’, opgenomen met niemand minder dan Skin van Skunk Anansie.

K’s Choice debuteerde in 1993 met ‘The Great Subconscious Club’. De doorbraak naar het grote publiek volgde twee jaar later met het verschijnen van ‘Paradise In Me’ met daarop de zeer succesvolle hit ‘Not An Addict’. In totaal heeft de band zeven studioalbums uitgebracht, en een aantal live- en verzamelalbums. Daarnaast werkten broer en zus ook aan een eigen solocarrière, en brachten ze onder de naam ‘Bettens’ de soundtrack ‘Waving At The Sun’ uit.
K’s Choice was founded in 1992 in Antwerp by sister and brother Sarah and Gert Bettens, and is still considered one of the biggest bands from Belgium. Over the years they scored numerous Top 10 Album positions, including ‘Paradise In Me’, ‘Cocoon Crash’, ‘Echo Mountain’ and ‘The Phantom Cowboy’ which went straight to the #1 position in Belgium and were rewarded with multiple gold and platinum awards. Their big break came in 1995, when they released ‘Not An Addict’, a single that was very successful and brought international fame. It can’t be argued that this single was their most popular hit, and even two and a half decades later it still receives great airplay in major markets.

Yes, 25 years! In 2017 the band celebrates it’s 25th anniversary and is still alive and kicking, more than ever. In March they will release “25”, a career spanning album including all their biggest hits and a new recording of ‘Not An Addict’ featuring Skin from Skunk Anansie! Later in the year the band will be performing in Europe to bring a mix of their greatest hits.
