Krept & Konan have announced that they are rescheduling their upcoming tour dates as Krept continues to recover after being attacked in Birmingham earlier this month.

The rapper was “slashed” backstage at a BBC Radio 1Xtra live show three weeks ago, resulting in the event being ended early and the last two acts of the night not performing at all. In a message to fans on Instagram, he explained that ongoing “complications” related to his injuries meant that he would be unable to perform the upcoming shows as planned.

“I’ve been having complications with my leg since and have been back and forth to the hospital and doctors, my doctor has told me if I tour next month I could risk more complications”, he wrote. “I need to make a full recovery because you know on tour it gets wild and what we have planned requires 100% strength”.

“My health is priority so I know you’ll understand”, he went on. “Seven shows back to back in November is not physically possible for me. I don’t wanna collapse on stage. So I’ve had to move the tour to January”.

A show at the O2 Arena in London on 5 Dec, originally intended to close the tour, will remain unmoved and will now be the first date of the rescheduled run. The rest of the dates will now kick off at Stylus in Leeds on 21 Jan. All tickets will remain valid.

Here are the full revised dates:

5 Dec: London, O2 Arena
21 Jan: Leeds, Stylus
23 Jan: Manchester, Albert Hall
24 Jan: Nottingham, Rock City
25 Jan: Birmingham, Academy
26 Jan: Bristol, Academy
29 Jan: Glasgow, SWG3
30 Jan: Dublin, Academy
