A$AP Rocky Heading to the UK in May - Tour Dates Announced
A$AP Rocky's UK tour dates have been announced which will see him perform four dates across England and Scotland.
Way back in 2011, A$AP Rocky was largely unknown, but with the BBC nominating him for "The Sound of 2012", he has since truly lived up to that moniker. Touring with Drake and Kendrick Lamar saw him rub shoulders with some of the other fastest growing names in his business and now he's bagged his very own tour. This follows the success of his first studio album Live.Long.A$AP which was released on January 15th.
Fans have been looking forward to the release of the dates for a long time. With four dates in the UK during May, most enthusiasts will be able to catch him somewhere. "For the past year I would give them dates to get them waiting," Rocky told Radio1's Newsbeat. "I couldn't imagine coming into the game telling people they're going to wait another year for a project."
Not lacking any self esteem, he added: "I was big in America so I knew I was going to be really huge in the UK... Sometimes I know it's so good that I'm like, 'People are going to say it's bad, because he's too good'."
You can catch him at the following destinations and dates:
London Academy Brixton - 22th May
Birmingham Institute - 23th May
Manchester Academy 1 - 25th May
Glasgow ABC - 26th May
