K's Choice Plays World Cup

Belgium's K's Choice went global for a performance of its new single, "Everything For Free," as part of last weekend's festivities celebrating the opening of the 1998 World Cup at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.

A TV audience for the international soccer tournament tuned in to K's Choice via Canal Entertainment, the largest TV network outside the U.S., and a press release immodestly estimated that some 30 billion watched the band.

K's Choice will play to considerably smaller audiences during a promotional tour of Canada in support of its new album, "Cocoon Crash," which is in stores now. The band will then headline Lilith Fair's second stage for the first two weeks of the tour, which launches in Portland, Oregon, on June 19 (see "K's Choice Wraps Album, Prepares For Lilith").
