Students' Union

School of Rock ft. The Kopycat Killers

It's the return of the biggest rock night on campus! With an appearance from The Kopycat Killers, expect to jam out to all of The Killers hits including Mr Brightside whilst you're a few VKs deep. After their performance, DJs will be dropping rock tunes all night long. Expect air guitar competitions and of course, a lot of head-banging. If your neck needs a break, fear not - we'll also have a second room playing all the hottest chart tracks.

The Kopycat Killers formed when frontman Stuart was told for the 200th time at one of his own gigs (in his originals rock band Lux Lisbon) that he 'sounds just like that bloke out of The Killers' and, being a huge fan, thought, "well why not!" He set about assembling his band from his contacts in both the London and Newcastle rock scene, all of the highest calibre and to a man incredible and hugely experienced rock musicians with university degrees in their respective instruments. 

In Lux Lisbon, Stuart sold out shows at venues that The Killers themselves have played, such as Bush Hall and London Scala. The Kopycat Killers attention to detail is intense, featuring authentic tones and sequenced studio sounds to emulate The Killers' own. Backing musicians, along with the stage wear, instruments, set choice and decoration (including the Killers own famous 'K' keyboard stand), it's all present and correct.

Above all though, the musicianship, energy and  atmosphere created is top tier - and as huge fans, they take recreating The Killers wonderful songs and amazing shows very seriously indeed.
