Rumours have been bubbling for a while and now it's official, The Boogie Down Productions legend is all set to embark on an extensive tour of Europe, including several UK dates, supported by the incredible beatboxer Rahzel.
London heads can check out the teacher's live show on the 8th of June at Shepards Bush Empire. Those nearer Nottingham can catch him at Rock City on the 5th of June. He's doing a show in Birmingham on the 7th. If you're a hip-hop fan, you must check this out, or at least try to. KRS very rarely leaves America, apparently due to a fear of flying. He'll be jumping on the QE2 to make these dates.
Tickets are £17.50 available through Ticketweb.co.uk. Blak Twang and a few other established names are rumoured to be appearing but nothing's confirmed. Check this site for an extensive live review of the night.
PS. Wouldn't it be great if the blastmaster returned to Westwood's studio's for round two of the now legendary argument they had live on air, in which Mr Parker threw many a home truth at the pimped out prat.
