A POPULAR band whose music is heavily influenced by their Polynesian roots will tour Fiji next month.
The US-based band Common Kings is being brought to Fiji by Broadway (Fiji) and their first performance will be at the Vodafone Arena in Suva on October 31.
The second concert would be held at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on November 3.
In a statement, Broadway (Fiji) said the events had been conceptualised and they would be managed by its sister company "Infinity Events Group".
"Broadway (Fiji) believes that the time is right for a live concert as Fiji has not had one with a high profile act in a few years," the statement said.
Common Kings is a band out of the Orange County in US and is made up of four members who have their roots from the Pacific region.
Sasualei Maliga (JR King), who is the lead singer, has his roots from Hawaii and Samoa; Taumata Grey who is the lead guitarist is from Samoa; bassist Lui Kirumaua (Ivan) has his roots from Fiji and Kiribati while drummer Jerome Taito (Rome) is from Tonga.
The band was born during a jam session at Kirimaua's house and has produced some pop hits with rock, reggae, R&B and classic music that have been rocking the Fijian airwaves for some time now.
Some of the band's singles are No Other Love ft J Boog, Wade in the Water, Fly, Alcoholic and Sickness. The statement said the ticket prices and other details would be available this week.
