Masked-up Manchester rapper Meekz has announced the details of his ‘Can’t Stop The Come Up’ tour, which will see the artist play an intimate hometown show at Manchester Academy 3.

Taking over the 470 capacity venue for one night in 2023 as part of the mini-tour, which also sees him play shows in London and Birmingham, fans will have a rare chance to see Meekz up close in a personal setting.
Earlier this year, the local heavyweight performed at the BRIT awards alongside UK rap champions Dave, Fredo, Ghetts and Giggs – giving a live rendition of his unforgettable verse on Dave’s ‘In the Fire’ to a mainstream audience of millions.

Meekz also impressed at Parklife festival last year, playing on the main stage to a crowd of thousands.

Now, he’s announced he’ll be pulling out all of the stops on tour – ending with a special homecoming show in the new year.

The tour announcement follows the first play of Meekz’s new track ‘Fresh Out The Bank’ featuring Dave which premiered as Clara Amfo’s BBC Radio 1 Hottest Record In The World last night.

Taken from his highly anticipated debut mixtape Respect The Come Up, which has just been released, Meekz has announced himself as the scene’s next superstar.


The 10-track project includes pre-release singles ‘Respect The Come Up’ & ‘More Money’ and seven brand new songs, plus a remastered version of ‘Take Losses’ – the 2018 cut which helped launch his career after the buzz it created on SoundCloud became too loud to ignore.
