Its a double bill (technically a triple bill) of tour announcements today, with both Molotov Jukebox and DJ Format & Abdominal announcing their separate headline shows around the UK. The triple bill but comes in as excitingly, roster mates The Church will be joining Molotov Jukebox as their national support act… Both tours go on-sale this Friday at 9am. Please see information below.
DJ Format & Abdominal
With fans flocking across the country to see Abdominal and The Oblique’s UK tour earlier this year, it was clear as day that the MC sidekick of DJ Format is still renowned as ever for his unique sound and delivery. A huge highlight from each show was when he and his band performed a string of DJ Format & Abdominal tracks to rapturous applause and it was moments like these that cemented the idea of getting both DJ Format & Abdominal back together and touring the UK again – something that hasn’t taken place for over 10 years.
With a headline show confirmed at London’s prestigious Jazz Cafe in Camden on the 22nd November, the duo will be traveling the length and breadth of the UK on a 12-date tour throughout the month of November taking in shows in Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow plus many more.
Both DJ Format & Abdominal have been busy over the past decade releasing music and playing shows around the world but it is this reunion tour that fans have been waiting for. Alongside new material to be premiered at the shows, huge hits like ‘Ill Culinary Behavior’, ‘Vicious Battle Raps’ & ‘Ugly Brothers’ taken from the albums ‘Music For The Mature B-Boy’ and ‘If You Can’t Join ‘em.. Beat ‘em’ will sure to be played to packed out venues, making this reunion tour one of the hottest tickets in the Hip Hop calendar this year.
