“Kano’s state-of-the-nation address is both lush and desolate… Grime’s elder statesman back with force…”- THE OBSERVER
Hoodies All Summer, the acclaimed new album from Kano, is out now on Parlophone. Listen here.
And, due to overwhelming demand, Kano today announced new live dates for 2020, including a stop here at Rock City, Nottingham. Kicking off in Bournemouth on 31 January, this second leg of the Hoodies All Summer Tour will see “…this gifted British MC”(The Observer) visit Cardiff, Bristol, Liverpool, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham and Manchester, as well take in as a massive 7,500 capacity gig at The Drumsheds in London.
Kano will make his return to the stage next month, accompanied by a full live band, with a string of dates that will include what promises to be a very special sold-out hometown show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 7 October.
