MOBO together with HTC is thrilled to announce a UK-wide tour in honour of legendary UK collective So Solid Crew. Following the group’s immense success at the heart of the UK urban scene, they will take to the stage for the last time in support of their anticipated ‘Best Of…’ release. Since exploding into the charts in 2001 with their genre defining no. 1 single ’21 Seconds’, the group went on to define a generation of urban music and now, following the release of their new album ‘Solid Soul: The Best of So Solid’, they will be returning to headline the MOBO Tour, providing fans with their very last chance to see them perform together as a ccollective.
So Solid will be taking to the stage at this year’s MOBO Awards 18th
anniversary show 19th
October in Glasgow at the newly opened SSE Hydro. The show will be the second time the group has performed on stage in Glasgow for the MOBO Awards, their performance in 2011 has been hailed as one of the most iconic moments in MOBO history. A long-standing supporter of the awards, Megaman has made no secret of the group’s excitement about taking to the arena stage ahead of their tour. He commented:
“MOBO has played a vital part in our careers over the past twelve years, and we’ve been lucky enough to win on a number of occasions which is a massive achievement for us. Being back on stage in Glasgow this year will be a seminal moment for us and we couldn’t ask for a bigger send off! We’re got some pretty amazing surprises in store for the show too, so fans won’t be disappointed.”
Now over a decade later and after numerous Top 10 hits like ‘They Don’t Know’ and ‘Haters’, So Solid (Megaman, Harvey, Lisa Maffia, Romeo, Swiss, Oxide and Neutrino et al) remain in the hearts and minds of longstanding and new fans alike. With their continuing popularity remaining as strong as ever, they recently sold out a show at indig02 in less than 24 hours.
The forthcoming tour will see them perform in London at The O2, then regionally in Manchester, Sheffield, Norwich and Birmingham as part of the MOBO Tour. In addition to the named support acts they will also be joined by a hand picked selection of new and emerging urban artists that MOBO want to champion and support.
