Here’s what the promoters have to say;
“Having spent years at the forefront of underground hip-hop, DOOM (previously MF Doom) will at last embark on a debut UK tour this October. The DOOMSDAY tour will feature DOOM’s first ever shows outside of London and are a rare chance to catch the mask-wearing maverick in action.
The tour follows a triumphant, one-off UK date at London’s Roundhouse venue this March. 3,000 tickets were sold in under three weeks and those lucky enough to attend the sold out show witnessed DOOM performing classics from his extensive arsenal of recorded material.
DOOM’s various and ongoing musical escapades include output as alternative alter-egos King Geedorah, Metal Fingers and Viktor Vaughan, in addition to co-creations with Madlib (as ‘Madvillain’), Danger Mouse (as ‘DangerDOOM’), and a cameo on the Gorillaz multi-million selling Demon Days LP. The rapper and producer’s most recent studio album, Born Like This, is a tour de force of thrillingly intricate, diabolically original songwriting and has been hailed as one of the essential hip-hop LPs of recent years.”
