Thundercat announces Manchester Academy gig

Manchester gigs - Thundercat

Thundercat has announced two UK shows for April 2020, including a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy as part of a five date European headline run.

The news follows latest weeks’ announcement that he will head out on his biggest North American tour to date in Spring 2020.

The dates follow a busy 2019 which included a residency at the legendary Blue Note in New York where he sold out 14 shows; a US tour alongside Anderson .Paak; an invitation from Nile Rodgers to play at the Meltdown Festival in London and a set at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles.

For the uninitiated, Thundercat forms a cornerstone of the Brainfeeder label. He released “The Golden Age of Apocalypse” (2011) and “Apocalypse” (2013) followed by EP “The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam” which features the modern classic ‘Them Changes’. He later appeared “at the creative epicenter” (per Rolling Stone) of the 21st century’s most influential hip-hop album, Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly”, before releasing his game-changing third album “Drunk” in 2017.

Thundercat headlines at Manchester Academy on 11 April 2020.  The Manchester gig is one of two UK dates announced:
