Aitch has announced details of his ‘Close To Home’ UK and Ireland tour. The 14-date jaunt will come in support of his newly announced debut album Close To Home, which is set for release on August 19 via Capitol.
Due to kick off in Dublin on October 3, the ‘Close To Home’ tour will then visit cities including Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Birmingham, Bristol and London.
Aitch’s tour concludes on October 24 with a special show at the O2 Victoria Warehouse in his native Manchester. Tickets go on sale on June 1 at 9am. Visit the artist’s official website for further information.
Last week Aitch released his single “1989”, which samples The Stone Roses’ “Fools Gold”. Paying homage to the year the original “Fools Gold” was released, “1989” arrived with a music video shot on the streets of his home city by Aitch’s closest visual ally, UK creative Kelvin Jones.
Speaking in a recent interview with UK publication The Face, Aitch also claimed that Happy Mondays and Black Grape frontman Shaun Ryder agreed to come to the studio to work on his new album in exchange for “four cans of Guinness”.
Aitch has soared from underground rapper to chart-dominating, platinum-selling, BRIT Award-nominated household name in just three years. Standing at the vanguard of a fresh wave of talent from Manchester, Aitch weaves wit, humor, and confidence through his high-octane releases.
