Experimental hip hop artist DJ Shadow (Josh Davis) has announced a UK headline tour for October 2017 to follow a run of festival appearances across the globe including Coachella, Sonar Festival, Bestival and Sziget.

The 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.  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.

The 20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition, released in October, took the form of a special deluxe 3 CD/LP collection featuring the original album, a collection of demos, alternative takes and live versions titled ‘Excessive Ephemera’ and 12 specially commissioned remixes from some of contemporary electronic music’s leading lights including Hudson Mohawke, Clams Casino, Salva, Prince Paul, Karma Kid and more.

The full tour listing:
3 October   –   Glasgow, O2 ABC
5 October   –   Manchester, Albert Hall
6 October   –   Bristol, O2 Academy
7 October   –   London, Roundhouse

Tickets for DJ Shadow at Manchester’s Albert Hall on 5 October 2017 go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 March.
