Stormzy

^^

When: Monday 24th July
Where: Enmore Theatre

Following the release of his UK chart-topping debut album Gang Signs & Prayer featuring hits “Big For Your Boots” and “Shut Up”, South London MC Stormzy is thrilled to announce he’ll head to Australian shores in July for a headline tour. Alongside a slot at Splendour In The Grass 2017, the multi-award winning UK grime phenomenon will treat his ever-growing audience to debut shows in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne. 23-year-old Stormzy, aka Michael Omari emerged onto the grime scene in 2013, appearing on his record-breaking YouTube freestyles series WickedSkengMan. Omari’s debut EP Dreamers Disease was released the following year, trading in straight up raps for a broad range of musical styles that showcased his artistic and open mindset. Dreamers Disease furthered Stormzy’s climb to worldwide acclaim, when he received Best Male Act & Best Grime Act at the UK MOBO Awards and Best International Artist at the BET Awards. Dreamers Disease soon caught the attention of legendary British TV presenter Jools Holland. Holland invited him as a guest on his renowned live music program Later With Jools Holland, making him the first unsigned rapper to appear on the show, which Stormzy describes as “the most nerve racking thing he’s ever done”. Ahead of performing at UK festivals Glastonbury, Wild Life and TRNSMT Stormzy makes his long awaited visit to Australian shores in July. Don’t miss the chance to see London’s most prestigious grime star on his long awaited return to Australia. To sign up for exclusive access to pre-sale tickets visit Handsome Tours.
