THE STREETS have announced a comeback tour which features a show at Glasgow’s O2 Academy.
After officially disbanding in 2011 after the release of their final album Computers And Blues, the legendary garage/hip-hop project of wordsmith Mike Skinner that spawned a number of early noughties classics are aiming to make a triumphant return to the stage.
Dubbed ‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’, the upcoming run of shows will take place over the course of April 2018 and will conclude with two dates at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
Commenting on the decision to reconvene under the moniker, Skinner stated that:
“I’ve missed tour buses very much, which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again.he other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough.
“With my Tonga parties, the new rap and grime MC’s I have been producing and the DJing, I have been living with music since making The Streets for nearly as long as I made The Streets. I’m not the guy smoking in the car anymore though, I have become the guy in the club, so I hope I will be excused for putting on after parties in nightclubs after every show.”
