Here's what fans need to know about his forthcoming dates.

Stormy has rescheduled his tour in support of his latest album Heavy Is The Head, the acclaimed follow up to Stormzy’s wildly successful 2017 debut album Gang Signs & Prayer.

The tour will now kick off in Newcastle on 7 April 2021, and includes three hometown headline shows at London’s The O2 on the 12, 13 and 14 April. He will also take to Leeds, Nottingham, Bournemouth, Manchester, Sheffield, and Liverpool as part of the run.

Heavy Is The Head was released in December 2019 and hit the top spot on the UK album chart, repeating the success of Stormzy’s wildly successful 2017 debut album Gang Signs & Prayer.

In November of last year, Stormzy released the Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy featuring Own It, taken from the record.

It’s been a whirlwind few years for the South Londoner who since the release of his debut record Gang Signs & Prayer has become one of the most celebrated UK artists of a generation.

Released in February 2017, the LP debuted at No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart and received huge critical acclaim, taking home the 2018 BRIT Award for Album of the Year.

Featuring the singles Big For Your Boots, Shut Up and Blinded by Your Grace, Pt. 2, the rapper followed up the release with a sold out UK headline tour, including a three-night stint at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.

Last summer saw the musician make history as he headlined the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival for the first time, becoming the first British rapper to do so. Stormzy won huge plaudits for his politically-charged set, cementing his place as one of the most vital live artists of a generation.

The Londoner wore a Banksy designed stab vest during his performance, which features on the artwork for Heavy Is The Head. 

Earlier this year, Stormzy picked up Best Male Solo Artist at the 2020 BRIT Awards, having seen his sophomore album reach No.1 on the official UK chart.

Stormzy will head out on his biggest headline tour to date in support of the new album next year.
