[So Solid Crew[/A] have announced their return, confirming that they will play a headline show in London this March.

The grime collective, who had a chart topping single in 2001 with '21 Seconds' will perform at London's IndigO2 on March 21. Original members of the crew including Megaman, Romeo, Lisa Maffia, Oxide & Neutrino, Harvey and Asher D will appear. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 18 at 9am.

Though they never officially split, So Solid Crew last released an album 2006 and have proven influential on a new generation of grime stars finding success in the pop charts. Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder and Ed Sheeran have all mentioned So Solid as influences on their music.

So Solid Crew have also found themselves as unlikely reality TV stars with the majority of the members taking part in programmes including The Games and Celebrity Big Brother. Meanwhile, Megaman was cleared of a murder conviction in 2006 after originally being found guilty of encouraging producer Carl Morgan to shoot a man named Colin Scarlett in November 2004. Morgan was jailed for 30 years at an earlier trial. On that occasion the jury failed to reach a verdict against Megaman, prompting the retrial.

Tickets go onsale on Friday January 18. To check the availability of So Solid Crew tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
