Lil Uzi Vert announces UK shows for next month

Lil Uzi Vert is returning to the UK for a mini-tour next month, which will see him play three shows.

The rapper’s run of dates kicks off at the world-famous O2 Academy Brixton on Monday, September 6th, before Lil Uzi makes an excursion in Birmingham the following night. The series of shows then concludes at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse on September 8th.

The tour couldn’t come at a better time for Lil Uzi, who is currently raising funds as he looks at acquiring a planet. Last month, his friend Grimes tweeted an image of WASP-127b, which she claimed the rapper was trying to buy, and he later confirmed.

Earlier this year, Uzi also implanted a $24 million diamond in his forehead, which he removed from his head in June only to re-plant the extravagant purchase last month.

Tickets go on sale this Thursday at 10am BST for Lil Uzi’s UK jaunt, and if you want to get access to the shows, then you’ll have to act sharpish to see one of the biggest rappers on the planet in this trio of fairly intimate rooms.
