Worth the Grand
Mike Skinner brings his latest album to the Alexander Palace, with fans keenly awaiting a spontaneous performance.

Over the last three years, The Streets, aka London via Birmingham DJ/rapper Mike Skinner, have turned the 2-step/garage club scene on its ear, managing to earn British hip-hop international respect as a mere by-product. Combining singing, rapping, and mock accents to release clever rhymes that drop as many cultural references as his talented American counterparts, earlier this year Skinner released a second critically acclaimed album, A Grand Don't Come For Free. His tremendously successful debut, Original Pirate Material, featured unconventional crossover hits such as "Lets Push Things Forward" and innovative tracks like "The Irony of it all", a debate about drug use at breakneck pace where Skinner affects voices for both characters

It's not surprising that Skinner was able to escape clubland and translate what he learned there and more to the studio, given his natural talent. His club scene roots also translate to a stunning live show as energetic, bouncy and spontaneous as his recordings and there will be plenty of space for him to move around in the cavernous Alexandra Palace.
