(UK) Double Grammy Award-winning HipHop trailblazers Arrested Development are embarking on a rare UK tour in February 2015. Speech, 1 Love, Tasha LaRae, Fareedah Aleem, Za’ and JJ Boogie will be bringing their colourful sounds and unique mixture of consciousness and musicality to 8 venues across the UK this February, including a very special show at London’s iconic KOKO in Camden.

With classics such as People Everyday, Revolution and the ubiquitous Mr Wendle, this unique chance to enjoy the Arrested Development live experience is not to be missed. Supporting Arrested Development will be two incredible acts: 47Soul and HeaveN Beatbox.
