Mike Skinner has announced the return of The Streets with a one-off UK tour called “The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light” with six-dates across British in April next year concluding with two nights at London’s Brixton Academy.
Speaking on the comeback Mike Skinner 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.”
He added “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.”
The Streets will be returning to the road for the first time since their ‘Computers and Blues’ tour in 2011. They are set to thrill fans with a set-list spanning from all of their five records including the Mercury nominated Original Pirate Material which was named by The Guardian as the album of the decade.
Full tour dates can be seen below with tickets going on general sale at 9am Friday 13th October and will be available at www.gigsandtours.com.
