UPDATE 16/9/16: Skepta has had to cancel his tour. Refunds will be available from point of purchase.

Skepta has had to amend a few of the dates on his upcoming Australian and New Zealand tour. The delay is due to the Mercury Prize ceremony on September 15, at which Skepta is due to perform, as well as being nominated for his new album Konnichiwa. Other performers include ANOHNI, Savages, and a “special performance” of David Bowie‘s Blackstar, all of whom are among this year’s shortlist.

The first dates for the tour sold out pretty much immediately, and additional dates for most cities are now on sale – this includes additional dates in Perth, Dunedin, Christchurch, Auckland and Melbourne.

It’s also been announced that Skepta is bringing his Boy Better Know kin FRISCO as main support for the entire tour.

All details for the changed dates can be found below. Ticketholders don’t need to do anything, but refunds are available for anyone who can no longer make the show due to the changed dates.
