Tickets On Sale: 9am March 17th via www.alberthallmanchester.com Experimental hip hop luminary DJ Shadow aka Josh Davis today announces a UK headline tour in October 2017, following a run of festival appearances across the globe. The San Francisco-based producer will kick things off at Sonar Festival’s Hong Kong edition before taking in Coachella festival, Sonar in Barcelona, Outlook, Bestival and much more!These dates come off the back of a stellar year for DJ Shadow, with the summer 2016 release of his critically acclaimed studio album The Mountain Will Fall – his first release in five years – drawing praise from all corners, from the Guardian who called the record “impressive in its inventiveness” to MOJO who claimed “Shadow is back in the frame” and AV Club who hailed it as “DJ Shadow’s best work since his early-aughts heyday”. 2016 also heralded the 20th anniversary of Shadow’s 1996 debut album Endtroducing, widely regarded as a groundbreaking release that paved the way for experimental hip hop and changed the shape of electronic music from that point on. Upon its release The Guardian gave it a 5* review and called it “One of the most daring and original albums of recent times”, continuing, “This is genius”, while Spin wrote that the album "practically folds you into its symphonic fantasia, the coming-of-age story of a 24-year-old bunk-bed dreamer." Almost a decade later Pitchfork awarded Endtroducing a perfect 10 in their review of the 2005 Deluxe Edition, calling the record “deeply spiritual.” DO NOT MISS!
