the streets, UK, tour

The Streets set for 11 date tour in early 2019

In Grime, Hip Hop by Nick Russell

The living legend Mike Skinner announced that his pioneering act The Streets will be touring the UK in January and February 2019. Following his sold out tour ‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’, it seemed inevitable that a follow up tour would be well received.

This was especially true since Mike dropped five brand new tracks over the past few months (‘You Are Not The Voice In Your Head’, ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ feat Jaykae, ‘If You Ever Need To Talk I’m Here’, ‘Burn Bridges’ and ‘Sometimes I Hate My Friends More Than My Enemies’) with new album is in the works, which is set to be used  as part of a soundtrack to a film he is working on!

The eleven shows announced will kick off in his home city of Birmingham on 18th January 2019 and will close with three shows at the O2 Brixton Academy. Full dates are listed below. Tickets are available from
