Krept & Konan postpone ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ tour after backstage assault

"I need to make a full recovery."

Krept & Konan have postponed their forthcoming UK tour after Krept was slashed backstage at a recent show.

The rapper has confirmed that their November will now take place in January 2020, after he sought advice from his doctor.

He revealed how he has been “back and forth” from hospital after he was attacked backstage at the BBC’s 1xtra Live show in Birmingham earlier this month.


The duo will still perform their biggest show to date at London’s O2 Arena on December 5.

Krept wrote: “My doctor has told me if I tour next month, I could risk more complications. I need to make a full recovery because you know on tour it gets wild and what we have planned requires 100% strength.”

He added: “My health is priority, so I know you’ll understand. 7 shows back to back in November is not physically possible for me. I don’t wanna collapse on stage lol.”

The rescheduled dates can be viewed in full below.

January 2020


21  – LEEDS Stylus
23  – MANCHESTER Albert Hall
24  – NOTTINGHAM Rock City
25  – BIRMINGHAM O2 Academy Birmingham
26  – BRISTOL O2 Academy Bristol

Meanwhile, their second album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ will arrive on November 1. It follows the duo’s highly politicised song-and-film release ‘Ban Drill’, shared back in June.
