By | Published on Thursday 17 March 2011


Japanese post-rockers Mono have announced that they will tour the UK in June, including a special performance with the 24-piece Holy Ground Orchestra at London’s Koko.

Explaining what fans can expect at the Koko show, the band say: “We have been playing music together as a band for over twelve years now and we feel we have come so far in that time, as musicians and as people. We want to push the boundaries of what is expected of rock musicians and draw upon those influences that heavily inspire us, namely Beethoven and other classical composers, and perform something very unique”.

They continued: “We really embrace the opportunity to perform this extremely special concert where we expand our sound with a 24-piece orchestra, for the first time ever in Europe. We are so happy to be able to finally share this highly emotional performance with our loyal fanbase in London and Europe as a whole, who have always been so good to us and we hope that it will be as spiritual and meaningful for them, as it is for us”.

Tour dates:

6 Jun: Brighton, Concorde 2
7 Jun: London, Koko
8 Jun: Bristol, The Fleece
9 Jun: Manchester, Sound Control
10 Jun: Glasgow, The Arches
