Chase and Status and Tinie Tempah – two of the defining artists of the past 5 years coming back with new albums and bigger shows plus one of the most important guitar bands of the decade, Franz Ferdinand. Four chart-topping exceptional live acts for back-to-back headline shows in the Balearics.
Having first smashed the charts with their killer hit Take Me Out and their self-titled debut album in 2002, Glasgow boys Franz Ferdinand are back, and Balearic bound. They’ve ticked off a Mercury Music Prize, BRIT Awards for Best British Group and Best British Rock Act, NME Awards, multiple Grammy Award nominations, sold over 3 million albums worldwide and are soon to release their hugely anticipated fourth studio album. This band were a huge influence on Ibiza Rocks, helping fuel the concept of promoting gigs for 'dance kids who rock and rock kids who dance.' Rocks is exceptionally proud to be bringing one of the world’s best live bands to make their debut on the famous open-air Rocks stage in Mallorca and Ibiza this summer.
Alex Kapranos said: “This is the first time we've been to Ibiza Rocks, so are looking forward to it. Paul's been and told us all about it, so we're expecting a great crowd there and Mallorca.”
Chase and Status are undoubtedly one of the most exciting and successful British bands of the past decade. Their double platinum, second album No More Idols sold over 600,000 copies in the UK alone and spawned over 2 million single sales. They were the biggest selling band in the UK in 2011, behind Coldplay, sold out tour after tour in the UK, Europe, US and Australia and played live at 36 festivals around the world last summer. Phenomenal track Big Man with Liam Bailey has provided a taster of what’s to come from their highly anticipated third album, due for release in summer.
Chase and Status said: “We’re excited to bring our live show to Ibiza Rocks again this summer – the crowds at Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks are always amazing!”
