slowthai announces £5 tour across UK venues

Oh boy!

slowthai is going on a five-date tour of the UK this autumn, with tickets priced at £5 each.

The Northampton rapper, who released his debut album ‘Nothing Great About Britain’ last week, will play a handful of dates to promote his record as part of his ‘Bet Ya A £5er’ tour.

It follows this month’s 99p tour, which saw the MC play small venues including South Shields’ Trimmers Arms in the north east of England.

In a four-star review of his album, NME’s Natty Kasambala wrote: “The Northampton rapper’s unique debut album is authentic and honest in all its garish glory, an indication of the sprawling possible paths for his career to grow into.”
