Migos have announced a surprise London show, and it’s happening next week.
The rap trio will play Brixton Academy next Tuesday (20 March).
This is the group’s only UK live date thus far, aside from their slot at Wireless in north London’s Finsbury Park on Saturday 7 July.
Tickets for their Brixton show go onsale tomorrow at 10am. Buy them here.
The group recently dropped their latest album, ‘Culture II‘, with NME giving it a four star review, saying: “This follow-up to 2017’s rapturously received ‘Culture’ sees them cement their reputation for musical innovation, sly humour and louche delivery as they develop the short, triplet rhymes that have become their signature sound.”
Meanwhile, Jeff Goldblum has revealed an unexpected desire to collaborate with the group after the ‘Jurassic Park’ star was spotted with Quavo in recent months, saying he’d be “thrilled” to do anything with them.
The trio also got in a spot of bother recently when they were sued for allegedly inciting a riot, at a show back in 2015.
They’re accused of engaging in “reckless” on-stage behaviour at a show in Albany, New York, according to a suit filed by the owner of the venue. According to the suit, tensions were raised after the group failed to attend a planned meet-and-greet, eventually boiling over and resulting in patrons being “stabbed, robbed, and beaten.”
Migos member Offset also recently had to deny that he is homophobic, following controversy over recent lyrics.
January saw Offset team up with fellow Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci for ‘Boss Life’. The track sees Offset rap the lyrics: “60K solitaire / I do not vibe with queers / I got the heart of a bear / I bust ‘em down by the pair”.
Following the backlash over the lyric, Offset took to Instagram to claim that he wasn’t using the term “queer” in a derogative way, saying: “I didn’t write the line about gay people.”
