Slowthai has announced a series of live shows that will see the British rapper - who rose to popularity in 2019 for his gritty and rough instrumentals and raw, politically charged lyrics - return to small stages despite his now huge fanbase.
Covid permitting, the ‘Something To Look Forward To’ shows are set to take place in August and September later this year.
Slowthai’s second album Tyron looks set to hit number one in the UK this Friday, and the Northampton-raised artist has also just released the video for new single, Vex.
“I miss you all so much and we need something to look forward to, so I’m taking it back to the smaller venues that need our support more than ever”, he says. “Love you. Can’t wait to see you in those sweaty box rooms.”
Tickets go on general sale on Friday, with the confirmed dates as follows:
31 Aug: Glasgow, G2
1 Sep: Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
2 Sep: Birmingham, The Hare And Hounds
7 Sep: Oxford, The Bullingdon
8 Sep: Southampton, The Joiners
9 Sep: London, The Underworld
