Rascals to hook up with O2 Academy venues nationwide UK Club Tour March 2013

Academy Music Group (AMG) is proud to announce a UK club tour across seven of its UK venues in March 2013 with Virgin Records’ newest signing, Rascals.

Fresh from a January 2013 tour support with Kendrick Lamar and in the running for MTV’s Brand New (vote Rascals at*), the four-piece from Bow, London have emerged from the underground in a blaze of glory in the world of MCs, R&B and grime, with support coming in thick and fast from, the likes of DJ Target, Mistajam, Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Professor Green and Wiley.

Rascals will perform club PAs at O2 Academy club nights in London (Propaganda – 8 March), Glasgow (Jelly Baby – 21 March), Newcastle (Propaganda – 23 March), Leeds (Vodka Nationwide – 6 March), Leicester (Shabang! – 1 March), Bristol (Ramshackle – 15 March) and Birmingham (Propaganda – 29 March) throughout March.

We’ve been following Rascals for some months from their support on the Conor Maynard on tour in 2012, to Kendrick Lamar in January 2013 and seeing them live on the MTV Brand New tour. We’re extremely pleased to announce a Rascals club tour, as we regularly host PAs and had enormous success with Rizzle Kicks last year. Showcasing up and coming artists to music fans is a perfect route to market and enhances the audience experience; Rascals will play to over 10,000 clubbers throughout March across our venue estate, and is a perfect platform to coincide with their brand new single release ” says Carl Bathgate, Commercial Development Manager, Academy Music Group.

Big thanks and shout out to the O2 Academy team, we're really looking forward to this tour...” Rascals
