Slowthai announces shows to support small venues

By | Published on Tuesday 16 February 2021


Slowthai has announced a series of live dates that will – COVID permitting – see him go back to small venue stages, despite his ever-growing fame. Meanwhile, as his second album, ‘Tyron’, looks set to hit number one in the UK this Friday, he has 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”.

The shows are set to take place in August and September this year, with the rapper dubbing it the ‘Something To Look Forward To’ tour. Whether or not the venues will be allowed to host performances by then still remains to be seen, but I guess a little optimism can’t hurt.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday. Here are the dates:

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
