Making his highly anticipated return to the live music circuit Skinner’s The Streets 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’. Having last toured back in 2011 with the ‘Computers & Blues’ UK tour, it will be the first time that The Streets have performed live in seven years.
Mike Skinner’s career marks a significant moment in musical history, described as the voice of his generation, the ground-breaking mix of beats and street poetics of ‘Original Pirate Material’, led to a Mercury Music Prize Nomination, and both critical and commercial acclaim. The 2004 album ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ saw him break into the British mainstream and spawned the UK No.1 ‘Dry Your Eyes’, as well as a host of Top 10 singles.
Speaking on the 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. 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.
