In addition to the LISTEN OUT circuit, SKEPTA has just added new dates to his Australian tour. He will also be playing headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney. From unleashing his rapid-fire flow on pirate radio stations in his hometown Tottenham to selling out venues worldwide, London’s ground-breaking grime veteran makes his Australian headline debut this September.
Creating his own blueprint in grime, the accomplished artist, MC, producer and record label owner heralded a new era of UK street music. Combining an inspired DIY philosophy with his raw lyrical flow, the 35-year-old has proved an anomaly in the major label music machine of one-hit wonders and TV competition stars. Following the release of his chart-topping album Konnichiwa including breakthrough singles ‘That’s Not Me’ and ‘Shut Down’, Skepta has catapulted his career into the mainstream taking out the coveted 2016 Mercury Prize, several BRIT and NME Award nominations while garnering high profile admirers including Drake, Kanye West and Pharrell.
In a landmark performance as the first grime artist to ever hit the Concert Hall stage, don’t miss Joseph Junior Adenuga aka Skepta bring his ferocious rhymes and grinding basslines for a raucous celebration of British rap culture.
