Rap collective will warm-up for tour by letting punters pick price
Goldie Lookin Chain are set to announce details of a full UK tour for March 2009 soon – and have declared that they will play a ‘pay-what-you-like’ warm-up show for the jaunt in London in January.
The one-off gig will take place on January 14 at the London Metro. Entry to the show will be free, with fans asked to pay as much or little as they like on the way out of the show.
In a statement rapper Eggsy said, “All donations will be welcome, obviously during these times of credit crunching, just bring some spare change and prepare for a high energy work out.
“You’d never see Thom Yorke wigglin’ out on stage and then asking you for money at the end of the show. It wouldn’t surprise me if we inspired him to play Wembley like this.”
The band will make a new song, ‘New Day’, available for download from January 1 from major download services. They will release a new album, ‘Asbo4Life’, in 2009.
