Australian grime fans are sure to be excited with the announcement that British rapper, Skepta has added a further four shows for his Australian and New Zealand tour in September. The dates have been added following his Sydney, Mebourne, Brisbane, Auckland and Perth shows selling out in minutes. It was not too long ago since Skepta was down under for a run of festival dates alongside RL Grime, Boys Noize and Anna Lunoe at the beginning of the year. The grime lord is truly at the top of his game, with his huge 2015 single, Shutdown, sitting at over 30 million listens online and his most recent album, Konnichiwa receiving rave reviews across the board.
Skepta also announced his main support for the tour and will be joined by his fellow label mate, FRISCO. The fellow grime artist, who hails from Tottenham, released his highly anticipated debut album, System Killer, in April which also features Skepta and fellow label mate, Wiley. For a little teaser of what you can expect for Skepta’s upcoming tour, take a listen to Skepta’s remix of Jamie XX’s I Know There’s Going To Be (Good Times) which also features FRISCO.
