NEWS… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Stormzy’s much-delayed UK tour in support of his 2019 album Heavy Is The Head will take place with shows on dates in March and April 2022.
The 28-year-old grime star has repeatedly postponed the concerts in response to the pandemic but finally confirmed the new dates on Tuesday with extra tickets now on sale.
The tour, his biggest in the UK to date, includes three nights at London’s O2 Arena as well as shows in Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Glasgow.
The tour will begin on Sunday March 13 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff and end on Monday April 4 at The OVO Hydro in Glasgow.
The grime artist is also performing in Newcastle Upon Tyne on March 15, Leeds on March 16, Sheffield on March 18, Manchester on March 19, Liverpool on March 20, Nottingham on March 21, Birmingham on March 23, and Bournemouth on March 24.
His three-night residency at London’s O2 Arena will cover March 27, 28 and 29.
Stormzy will also hop across to Dublin for two shows on April 1 and 2 before returning to finish his tour in Glasgow.
His initial tour was among the biggest touring casualties of the pandemic, with Sir Elton John, Genesis and The Rolling Stones also among acts forced to delay live dates.
Originally from Croydon in south London, Stormzy rose to fame with his song Shut Up, which was initially released as a freestyle and posted on YouTube.
His 2017 debut album, Gang Signs And Prayer, was the first grime album to reach number one in the UK and was named album of the year at the 2018 Brit Awards. It was followed two years later by Heavy Is The Head.
December 2020 saw him sign with influential hip hop record label Def Jam after leaving Atlantic Records, joining some of the biggest names in rap music, including Kanye West, Nas, Pusha T and Public Enemy.
