Earlier this week, The Streets announced their return!
Mike Skinner and co are set to take the band out on the road next April for a comeback tour, playing six dates including two at London’s Brixton Academy. Or at least, it was two. They’ve added a third show at the venue, which will take place on 27th April.
Tickets for all of the dates are set to go on sale from 9am on Friday 13th October.
Speaking of the tour, Mike Skinner recently said in a press release: “I’ve missed tour buses very much […] 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”.
