No extra security required for the notorious collective's show at Queen's University...

So Solid Crew played a rare live show in BELFAST last night (May 10) in a performance without trouble or incident.

The collective, barred from every venue and festival they have attempted to play on the UK mainland, stripped back to a core of four for the show at Queen’s University as part of the May Ball.

Members Skat-D, Mac, Timeless and Face played an hour-long set that included So Solid Crew chart-topper ’21 Seconds’ as well as MOP’s ‘Ante Up’ and Wu-Tang Clan ‘s ‘Gravel Pit’.

Despite the possibility of trouble being used as the reason So Solid Crew have been banned from playing live elsewhere, there were no extra security measures in place last night.

“It hasn’t been any different to any other big night to be honest,” Rod Martin, the Ents Officer responsible for booking the band said. “Things have been going really smoothly. I’ve been with the guys all night and I can’t understand where all the hype’s coming from.”

“That’s how we like it of course, nothing but love for the whole night,” the band told NME.COM before their show. “We want to spread nothing but love to Northern Ireland and any island.”


headlined the show last night. Both acts move to Dublin tonight for their second Irish date.
