RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Alternative rock indie band, Rainbow Kitten Surprise (RKS), is currently touring across 11 countries and has 34 upcoming concerts, and tickets go on sale Tuesday for the band’s summer 2023 performance in Richmond.

In addition to RKS, Richmond concert-goers can expect to see a performance by New Jersey-based singer and songwriter, Carol Ades.

The performances will take place on June 13 at Brown’s Island. Gates will open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Public tickets for the event go on sale Friday, Feb. 3, but if you’re nervous the hotly-anticipated show of the summer may sell out, several presale options are available.
