slowthai by Sharon López

The Northampton rapper has announced plans for five shows to celebrate his newly-released debut.

Fresh from the release of his debut album ‘Nothing Great About Britain’, slowthai has announced plans for a five-date UK tour.

Always one to offer up a bargain - as demonstrated by his recent 99p jaunt - there’s a particularly thrifty twist to his live plans: tickets for each show will be just £5, hence him dubbing the tour ‘Bet Ya A £5er’ tour.

He’ll play five shows this October, kicking off in Newcastle and wrapping up with a massive show at London’s Brixton Academy. His dates are as follows.

13 Newcastle University, Newcastle
14 SWG, Glasgow
16 Manchester Academy, Manchester
17 Bristol O2 Academy, Bristol
18 Brixton O2 Academy, London

Tickets are due to go on sale this Friday (24th May) at 10am.
