December was suppose to be a great month for ‘The Godfather of Grime’, Wiley, as he kicked off his ‘Snakes and Ladders’ tour with a number of dates in key cities; London, Birmingham, and Manchester.
Unfortunately on the night before Wiley was due to perform at The Garage in north London (Monday, December 15), a shooting took place, which meant that the venue was unable to open, and the show being postponed. The promoters SJM also confirmed in a statement that the dates in Birmingham (Thursday, December 18), and Manchester (Friday, December 18) have also been cancelled.
The good news is that new dates have been confirmed for the ‘Snakes and Ladders’ tour for early 2015, and will see Wiley performing, with support from the man-of-the-moment, Stormzy on the following dates; London Scala – Tues 27 January
Birmingham Institute – Fri 30 January, and Manchester Gorilla – Sat 31 January.
Those who purchased tickets for the December dates have been instructed to hold on to them as they will be valid for the January dates. There are still tickets on sale including to the previously sold out London show due to venue upgrade: http://gigst.rs/wiley
