Little Simz has announced a brand new tour with her biggest UK gigs to date – and it will all kick off right here in Manchester this November.

The multi-award-winning rapper has already picked up awards for Best Solo Act, Best New Artist, Best New Album and even the 2022 Mercury Prize — all within the last three years.


Just over a day after shutting down the Saturday set at Parklife 2023, she announced a limited run of just four shows that promise to be her biggest yet.

You’ll find her at the O2 Victoria Warehouse on 6 November.

Tickets for Little Simz’s gig in Manchester on sale from 10am on Friday 16 June through See Tickets.
