:: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED ::
Formed in the mid 90s from the embers of The Happy Mondays – when drug problems and disagreements eventually led to the disintegration of the well-loved Manchester band – Black Grape saw Bez and Shaun Ryder reunited and joined by Kermit and Carl, members of hip hop outfit Ruthless Rap Assassins.
Together, they created funked out, joyous but gritty music, led by Ryder’s chaotic rhymes. Their debut album, It’s Great When You’re Straight… Yeah, which hit the number one spot in the UK and earned the group a Mercury Prize nomination, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, they’re hitting the road for a UK tour this summer.
Join them at Cambridge Junction on 11 June when they’ll be supported by Alias Kid. Advance tickets are £23.
