Mike Skinner has rebooted The Streets project and the first step in that process is the announcement of UK, Irish and European shows in Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin.
Two Dublin shows at the Olympia Theatre happen on 16th and 17th of April 2017 and go on sale this Wednesday at 9am as part of The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light tour. Tickets are pricey enough at €49.50 plus fees but then again, The Streets’ debut album Original Pirate Material still stands up as a classic.
Tickets are limited to 4 per person and the info stresses that the lead purchaser must be present to get everyone in as ID will be checked.
Skinner has been involved in various projects since hanging up The Streets name and of his return he said:
“I’ve missed tour buses very much. Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again. The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough.
With my Tonga parties, the new rap and grime MC’s I have been producing and the DJing, I have been living with music since making The Streets for nearly as long as I made The Streets. I’m not the guy smoking in the car anymore though, I have become the guy in the club, so I hope I will be excused for putting on after parties in nightclubs after every show”.
If you can’t wait til then, Skinner plays District’s Christmas Party in Hangar before thre end of the year.
