Massive news is just emerging that The Streets will return for a greatest hits tour. Six dates have been announced for the ‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’ tour, all of which are in the UK at the moment.
According to NME here’s what Mike had to say.
“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. 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.”
Hopefully an Irish date will be announced soon.
Tickets go on general sale 9am Friday 13th October and will be available at www.gigsandtours.com
