Today Thundercat announces five European headline shows including his biggest London play to date at The Roundhouse on 09 April 2020. It follows hot on the heels of last week’s news that he will embark on his most extensive North America headline tour to date in Spring 2020.
For the uninitiated, Thundercat forms a cornerstone of the Brainfeeder label. He released “The Golden Age of Apocalypse” (2011) and “Apocalypse” (2013) followed by EP “The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam” which features the modern classic ‘Them Changes’. He later appeared “at the creative epicenter” (per Rolling Stone) of the 21st century’s most influential hip-hop album, Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly”, before releasing his game-changing third album “Drunk” in 2017.
The 2020 tour dates follow a busy 2019 that included a 14-show (sold out) residency at the legendary Blue Note, NYC; a US tour alongside his friend Anderson .Paak; an invitation from Nile Rodgers to play at the Meltdown Festival held at the Southbank Centre, London; and, most recently, a storming set at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles (the brainchild of Tyler The Creator) where he brought out special guests Michael McDonald and Kamasi Washington.
