Massive, amazing Skindred news! As well as their upcoming UK and Ireland 2023 tour, the Welsh heroes have announced three big shows for next year – including their largest headline date ever.
The band have just announced a show at London’s OVO Arena Wembley on March 15, with dates at the Manchester Academy and O2 Academy Birmingham taking place on either side. Huge! Tickets go on general sale at 10am this Monday, August 7.
Speaking specifically about Wembley, frontman Benji Webbe enthuses: “Standing on that stage is a mark of sheer hard work. We have stood upon that stage supporting many truly great acts. Now it’s Skindred’s time to take the headline slot.
“You may think you’ve seen us, however this is our opportunity to rise, and to step up like never before!
“My Sound we come to take over and truly come to rock Wembley with a heart full of gratitude and a set full of the most rockin’ tunes that we have ever played live. Unity, love and togetherness. Let’s ’ave it. Quadruple XL.”
To get you in the mood, of course, Skindred will be releasing their brand-new album Smile this Friday, August 4. Previously, Benji teased that it was “the ultimate ragga-rocking, dancehall-shaking, dutty-winding, head-banging, horn-waving creation. Yes party people the ’Dreds dem back!”
