BRADFORD rap group Bad Boy Chiller Crew have announced a homecoming tour date at St George's Hall later this year, in what will be one of the group's biggest gigs to date.

The rappers are heading out on a UK tour in the Autumn, playing venues across the country, and have added new dates to the schedule and also upgraded some venues due to high demand for tickets.

One of the new dates on the tour is a homecoming gig at St George's Hall in Bradford city centre on Tuesday, October 12.

They follow in the footsteps of the likes of David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and Led Zeppelin in performing at one of Bradford's most iconic and prestigious venues.

The tour had originally been scheduled this Spring but has been moved to the Autumn because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

They will also be playing gigs in Leeds, Manchester , Edinburgh, Dublin, Birmingham, Nottingham and in Brixton during the month long tour.

Bad Boy Chiller Crew - made up of Kane, Clive and Gareth Kelly - have shot to fame online over the past 18 months, amassing hundreds of thousands of followers on social media for their music and comedy videos, and have achieved plays on primetime radio and have had the backing of Bradford City.

Their lyrics, which often cover issues such as criminality, drugs and dangerous driving, are typical of the bassline/garage genre they specialise in but has drawn criticism from some people.

Tickets for their shows have gone on sale this morning and are available on the Live Nation ticket sales website.
