Stormzy announces Newcastle tour date as part of huge world tour
In what’s set to be one of the most-anticipated tours of 2020, Stormzy has announced a Newcastle arena tour date.
The British grime star today announced a huge 55-date H.I.T.H. World Tour with a date at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena on Friday, September 11, 2020.
In his biggest live offering to date, the tour kicks off in Dubai on February 7 and concludes in Africa in October playing a date in his homeland of Ghana, before ending the world tour with a show in Lagos, Nigeria.
The touring news comes straight off the back of a phenomenal few weeks for 26-year-old Stormzy.
Kicking off the month announcing his hugely-anticipated album Heavy Is The Head, last week the musician also announced his brand new single Own It featuring musical heavyweights Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy which is on course to become Stormzy’s 7th top 10 single in today’s Official UK Charts.
Executively produced entirely by the rapper, the album also features additional vocals from some of the most exciting musicians of this generation - all of whom have been hand-picked by Stormzy including Aitch, Burna Boy, Ed Sheeran, Headie One, H.E.R., Tiana Major9 and YEBBA with production from Fred Gibson, Fraser T Smith, T-Minus and others.
To date, Stormzy has unveiled four of the sixteen album tracks, leaving twelve unheard tracks still to come.
In April he made his return to the spotlight where he unveiled Vossi Bop, his first release since 2017. Vossi Bop broke the record for the biggest week one streams for a British Rapper, ever, with streams accumulating to over 12.7 million.
The single saw a combined sales total of 94,495 and subsequently earnt Stormzy his first ever UK No. 1 single, holding the top position for two consecutive weeks! Shortly after he unveiled Crown and his latest release Wiley Flow – where he paid homage to British MC, Wiley.
