Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Krept & Konan have confirmed details of an upcoming UK tour.
The newly announced tour kicks off in Nottingham on 24 November 2019, before heading to Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol, finishing with a huge show at The O2, London on 5 December 2019.
Pioneering London rap duo Krept & Konan are one of the most successful UK hip hop groups of all time.
The pair first enjoyed viral success in 2011 with a reimagined version of the Kanye West and Jay-Z collaboration track Otis, which before its removal was viewed over 5 million times on YouTube.
Commercial success for the duo followed in 2013 with the release of their third mixtape Young Kingz.
Featuring the hit single Don’t Waste My Time, the release peaked at No.19 on the Official UK Albums Chart, securing the duo a major label record deal with Virgin EMI.
Krept & Konan released their debut album The Long Way Home on the label in July 2015.
The album’s release was preceded by the top ten single Freak of the Week feat. Jeremih.
The Long Way Home, which features guest appearances from UK and US heavyweights such as YG, Wiz Kalifa, Rick Ross, Ed Sheeran, Skepta and Emeli Sandé, was a hit with fans, debuting at No.2 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
The duo made history in 2017 with the simultaneous release of their mixtapes 7 Days and 7 Nights. Both records debuted within the top ten on the Official UK Chart, a first in British chart history.
Recently, Krept & Konan have been teasing fans on the direction of their as-yet-unannounced new album with the release of singles Ban Drill and I Spy feat. Headie One and K-Trap.
The duo will be heading out on tour later this year including a huge hometown headline show at The O2, London.
