Stormzy Confirms Rescheduled ‘Heavy Is The Head’ UK Tour Dates
Matthew Baker/Getty Images – Stormzy headlining day two of Leeds Festival 2021 at Bramham Park, Aug. 28.
The day before, he had taken the top slot at the festival’s twin event Reading, both promoted by Festival Republic.
Stormzy has rescheduled the UK dates of his “Heavy Is The Head” tour, which had originally been scheduled for 2020 but had to be postponed for obvious reasons.
The tour’s named after Stormzy’s second album, Heavy Is The Head, released in at the end of 2019. That same year, he’d become the first British Rapper to headline Glastonbury Festival.
The “H.I.T.H.” tour had sold out before the crisis emerged. Stormzy’s manager Tobe Onwuka told Pollstar about the challenge of rerouting tours during the past one-and-a-half years, saying he didn’t want to keep getting people’s hopes up only to destroy them later.
“Had I plotted some of the tours that were offered to me, they definitely wouldn’t have happened,” he said, “These guys have spent their hard-earned money, they need to plan ahead, a lot of people travel to see a Stormzy show, so I want to make sure I’m giving A1 information.”
Most of Stormzy’s fans held on to their tickets purchased for the original “H.I.T.H” tour, all of which remain valid for the rescheduled dates.
Stormzy’s already played a couple of massive live shows since the UK opened back up in summer, including headlining Reading and Leeds festivals.
Stormzy is the holder of more than 25 awards including two BRIT Awards, one Ivor Novello Award, six MOBO Awards, one Q Award, one MTV EMA, one BBC Music Award, one Teen Choice Award, three AIM Awards, two BET Awards, two British GQ Awards, and two Global Awards.
The original “H.I.T.H” tour was a 55-date world trek, spanning across Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, North America, UK, Ireland and Africa. There wasn’t any information available at press time concerting the dates outside the UK.
