The Streets prepares tour after seven years
    2017-October-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Streets has announced a comeback tour.

It’ll be the first time that the band, fronted by Mike Skinner, has played live since their farewell tour seven years ago.

“Spoken to my band! Told them we need to sing the old songs!” he said in an Instagram post.

Other musicians are excited by the comeback, including Lethal Bizzle who wrote on the post: “Can’t wait for this bro jheeeeeeeez.”

The band last performed on tour in support of their fifth album, “Computers and Blues,” and Skinner has since been working as a DJ, as well as making solo music and documentaries.

“I’ve missed tour buses very much, which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again,” says the 38-year-old.

“The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs.”

And it looks like fans can expect the party to continue long into the early hours after each show.

Starting in Birmingham in April 2018, the tour will include dates in Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and London.

The news has gone down well with fans and other performers — with the post getting more than 17,000 likes.

Wiley posted on Instagram that Skinner is “the master of his craft.”

The Streets’ debut album, “Original Pirate Material,” was nominated for the 2002 Mercury Music Prize and is often named among the best albums of that decade by music magazines.

The band released their final album in 2011.

At the time, the Birmingham rapper said he had no regrets about retiring the project, as he didn’t want to be “singing ‘Let’s Push Things Forward’ when I’m 40.”
