slowthai Announces Inflation-Busting £1 Intimate UK Shows

UK rapper slowthai has announced details of an inflation-busting £1-a-ticket UK shows. Get all the details on these intimate gigs here.



Having announced his return last week with details of his third album UGLY, UK rapper slowthai has announced news of a short UK tour.

Following his release from an extended period of time inside a custom built room fitted floor to ceiling with 2-way mirrors (watch the live stream back here), slowthai has announced details of his first shows in a year in partnership with world-famous spirit brand Jägermeister.

Check out the new single “Selfish” here:

Dubbed the ‘Best Night of Your Life’ tour, the gigs will see the rapper making quite the jump from 5,000 capacity Brixton Academy to the 150 capacity George Tavern pub in London as he goes back to basics with 6 intimate shows in local pubs across the country with tickets costing just £1.

Speaking of the dates, slowthai says:

“I make music for myself but I wouldn’t be where I am without my fans. It’s important to me that people can have access to me and my music so I wanted to go to some new places and play this album first. Times are tough for a lot of people and working with Jägermeister has helped me keep tickets to only a quid.”

Keeping tickets at an inflation-busting £1 (1p up from his famed 99p tour in 2019), slowthai wants his very hardcore supporters to get the chance to see the carnage that’s undoubtedly going to unfold in these tiny, sweaty rooms. The pub tour is also very fitting with slowthai’s tweak in direction musically – bringing his love of rock, indie and punk to the forefront on new album UGLY, and local pubs are where many fledgling bands cut their teeth on the live circuit – a vital stepping stone for many.

Tickets go on pre-sale on February 13th at 10:00am with general-sale from February 15th at 10:00am from here.

Tour Dates:

02/23 – Independent – Sunderland
02/24 – Bootleg Social – Blackpool
02/25 – Craufurd Arms – Milton Keynes
03/01 – The George Tavern – London

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
