Excited about the MTV EMA awards hitting our Nation’s capital? Worried you might not get a ticket? Reckon you could do a better job than Gaga or the Chili Peppers anyway?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above then have WE got a treat for you……
Strap on your air guitar, select your favourite anthem…..THE One and Only Rockaoke are coming back to Belfast!
A professional rock band consisting of session musicians who have played alongside the likes of Jarvis Cocker and Def Leppard, Rockaoke has revolutionalized the world of karaoke! Choosing to work without a lead vocalist they instead invite members of the audience on stage to perform a set of classic rock covers with a sprinkling of disco and cheese thrown in for good measure.
Rockaoke first hit the road in 2003 and have since performed with a staggering 30,000 + individual lead singers. They made national headlines in 2006 when Kaiser Chief, Ricky Wilson jumped on stage with them to sing his very own “I Predict a Riot.” The band are well known on the international music festival circuit having played everywhere from Bestival to V, Latitude to Leeds. They have also toured the UK as house band for the BBC Radio 1 Chris Moyles Breakfast Show (featuring an array of celebrity guest vocalists including Justin Lee Collins, James Corden, Alexandra Burke and Patrick Kielty)
The 12th November marks Rockaoke’s fourth show at Belfast’s Empire Music Hall, having sold out three times before and performed there with some of their favourite singers of all time. Describing the Empire as one of their top places to play Rockaoke can’t wait to return to our shores to take to the stage with old friends and new.
Referred to as “Karaoke’s much cooler, older brother,” the second best thing to do in London by THE TIMES and “the best night out in Belfast in ages” by GO Belfast magazine, with Rockaoke satisfaction is ALWAYS guaranteed. With a firm fan base in Belfast this gig is sure to be another memorable and supersonic occasion. So…whether you are looking for your five glorious minutes of fame or just want to lend your support to those brave enough to take to the stage, make sure you join us for the return of Rockaoke,
