Joey Bada$$ has been confirmed as the main support for Disclosure's upcoming UK tour.
Booking is an art form. Bringing the right artists together in the correct cities at the most appropriate venue... a lot has to be taken into consideration.
Even though, this seems - on the surface, at least - to be a little bizarre. Disclosure have confirmed plans for a short headline tour next year, playing a number of dates across the country. In a fresh announcement the brothers have confirmed that support will come from Joey Bada$$.
Bringing the Golden Age sound into the 21st century, the Beast Coast rapper has earned critical acclaim for his playful-with-a-punch approach.
Hip hop and dance are never the most natural of bedfellows, but the two will bring the noise at three UK cities next year. Opening in Edinburgh on March 5th, the tour hits Manchester for two shows before ending in London.
Hitting Alexandra Palace, the show on March 8th brings the short tour to a close. Tickets are on sale now.
Disclosure / Joey Bada$$ will play the following shows:
5 Edinburgh Corn Exchange
6 Manchester Apollo
7 Manchester Apollo
8 London Alexandra Palace
