Giggs has announced the dates and venues for his upcoming 2019 UK & European tour. Releasing his critically acclaimed fifth studio album, Big Bad… back in February, the project stayed on the UK Album Charts for four weeks and peaked at #6. Recently being recognised on ‘The Official Top 20 best-selling cassettes in the UK of 2019 so far’ Big Bad… was definitely an album to look out for this year.
Commencing on 7th November in Dublin and end on 6th December in London, the tour will visit 15 cities across Europe and includes 7 dates in the UK. The UK rap veteran will be performing tracks off his latest album alongside all his classic hits and prepare to experience some heavy mosh pits for tracks like ‘KMT’ and ‘Talkin’ Da Hardest’.
Known for his deep-voice and gritty unapologetic lyrics, the Peckham native gained traction after releasing ‘Talkin’ Da Hardest’ in 2007 alongside a string on underground mixtapes in the early 00s which took the UK by storm. Despite gaining national recognition in the 00s, Giggs was still a target of the now-scrapped ‘Form 696’ which gave the Metropolitan Police the authority to shut down events they deemed ‘unsafe’. This didn’t stop fans from wanting to see the rapper perform live and due to popular demand, he organised a ‘secret’ concert where the venue was undisclosed and transportation arranged for fans to attend the gig. Fast-forward a decade and Giggs’ fanbase has reached international waters and has achieved the success that speaks for itself.
