Catch Little Simz on her upcoming UK tour, “NO THANK YOU”, with dates across Manchester, Glasgow, and London.
Introversion’s out of the picture for Little Simz, as she announces a UK tour and her first headline show at Alexandra Palace. Kicking off in November, the ‘No Thank You’ tour will begin at Manchester’s 02 Victoria Warehouse. It’ll then move through to Glasgow and Birmingham before the final night in north London.
The news follows Simz’s recently-announced set of North American tour dates throughout September. Word of her US excursion is music to the ears of our fellow fans across the pond after the star was forced to cancel last year’s tour – put down to financial issues birthed by an unsupportive industry. Even after over a decade of artistry and some may say an ironic Best New Artist award at last year’s Brits, touring the US would have left her in a financial deficit.
On ‘NO THANK YOU’, her fifth studio album, Simz takes the opportunity to blast the industry that claims to have created her success. Released in December through independent label Forever Living Originals, it is a hip-hop album infused with elements of gospel, soul, funk, and electronic music.
