Roots Manuva announces UK tour

Jaunt supports new 'Slime And Reason' album

Roots Manuva has announced a new UK tour, set to take place in October.

The gigs are in support of the hip-hop artist’s new album ‘Slime And Reason’, out on August 25.

Beginning in Gateshead, the tour takes in cities including Glasgow, Coventry and Bristol, before ending in Plymouth later in the month.


The tour is set to feature more of an electronic, ‘soundsystem’ feel as opposed to some previous tours, where the set-up relied heavily on live instrumentation.

Gateshead Sage 2 (October 7)

Edinburgh Liquid Room (8)

Glasgow Arches (9)

Manchester Warehouse (11)


Nottingham Rock City (12)

Coventry Kasbah (13)

Preston Club 53 (15)
