UK rap star, Professor Green, will be going on tour to cities around the UK in February 2019, playing at various intimate venues.
Firmly established as one of the crossover superstars of British music, the Hackney born and raised rapper, Professor Green (aka Stephen Manderson), has notched up two Top 3 albums and over 3.5 million combined sales in the UK alone since starting out as a revered battle MC. All in addition to presenting six critically acclaimed documentaries (for the BBC and Channel 4), publishing his autobiography ‘Lucky’, continuing his ongoing work as Patron of anti-suicide charity CALM, and, most recently, becoming a regular columnist for newly launched men’s title, The Book of Man.
The tour comes following recent releases of new tracks, including the very emotional ‘Photographs’. Produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Stormzy, Dave, Drake), and TMS (Jess Glynne, Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen), and featuring the vocals from the inimitable Rag’n’Bone Man, ‘Photographs’ received a premier by Annie Mac on Radio 1. The song sees Professor Green reflect on his past.
“Photographs conjure up so many different emotions.” Says Green. “The ones I miss the most are the ones I never took. They are for me, in many ways, the memories I don’t have – especially the ones from my childhood. I wish I had more.”
Tickets for his upcoming tour will be available on Friday 9th November at 10am via: http://gigst.rs/ProGreen
