East London quartet, Rudimental, comprised of Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor, and DJ Locksmith, are currently on a run of direct support dates for multi-Grammy nominated singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran on his X Tour of North America. The tour is in support of Ed's latest album X, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features a collaboration with Rudimental titled "Bloodstream," which they performed together at this year's Glastonbury Festival.
Rudimental have also had a big year winning the BRIT award for Best British Single for their song "Waiting All Night" featuring Elle Eyre. The #1 single was off their debut Home (Big Beat/Atlantic) which peaked at #1 on UK album charts and had another #1 single for "Feel the Love". Home also received the Mobo Award for Best Album and was nominated for the Mercury Prize for Album of the Year. Their breakout festival appearances at Coachella, Sasquatch and EDC NY were raved about by the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard and Wall Street Journal to name a few, for their dynamic and energetic live performances that feature an array live of musicians and give the feel of a soul revue more than a dance music show. They are now taking their exciting sets to arenas across the US.
Rudimental opens for Ed Sheeran locally at the Auburn Hills Palace on Wednesday, Sept. 17. Tickets are now on sale.
