The Streets are back! Yep, Mike Skinner and co. are reuniting for a comeback UK tour, touted as a greatest hits run - and set for April 2018.
Six dates await the band, finishing up with two Brixton Academy shows in London.
“I’ve missed tour buses very much,” Mike Skinner says in a press release. “Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again.
“The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough.
“With my Tonga parties, the new rap and grime MC’s I have been producing and the DJing, I have been living with music since making The Streets for nearly as long as I made The Streets. I’m not the guy smoking in the car anymore though, I have become the guy in the club, so I hope I will be excused for putting on after parties in nightclubs after every show”.
