The Streets Announce Special Reunion Tour For April 2018 | Music News


Veteran British hip hop and garage band The Streets have announced a special reunion tour titled The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light, to take place in April 2018. Seven years after the band was last on tour for their album Computers and Blues (2011), Mike Skinner is back making his highly anticipated return to the live music circuit.


On this special UK tour, the British rapper will perform all the greatest hits from his extensive back catalogue of iconic albums including The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living, Everything is Borrowed, Computers and Blues, A Grand Don’t Come For Free and Original Pirate Material.


Speaking about this huge comeback Mike Skinner said “I’ve missed tour buses very much. Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again. The 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“.


He continued saying, “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“.


The tickets for this awaited tour will be available on general sale from 9am on October 13 at
