Rising British rapper Hardy Caprio announces a headline European tour for Autumn 2018 today including a date at Manchester’s O2 Ritz.
The Hardy Season Tour is Hardy Caprio’s second headline tour in 2018, following his January UK dates which sold out within minutes of going on sale. Kicking off at the Concorde, Brighton on 7th October, and wrapping up at the Academy 2, Dublin on 20th October, the UK & Ireland leg of the tour will also see Hardy travel to Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Norwich, Leicester, Southampton, London, Liverpool and Glasgow.
The next in line to fly the flag for Croydon, (from where Stormzy, Section Boys and Krept & Konan also hail), 21-year-old Hardy Caprio has accumulated 1 million single sales since the release of debut single, Unsigned (ft. One Acen) and has been earmarked by music critics as the ‘next to blow’ after gate-crashing and setting his own tone in the UK Grime, Rap and Garage scene.
Hardy Caprio first started making noise with his SBTV Warm-Up session, where he freestyled over Tinie Tempah’s Wifey Riddim. The back-to-back release of Caprio’s Hardy Season EP and his Hollywood EP in 2017 further cemented Hardy’s substantial fan base, ahead of single Unsigned (ft. One Acen) which is certified Gold in the UK, (after passing the 350,000 sales mark and racking up more than 30 million streams).
Tracks Super Soaker and C’Mon followed prior to Hardy performing at Spotify UK’s critically acclaimed inaugural live event, Who We Be Live, at London’s Alexandra Palace.
After being tipped as an artist to watch for 2018 by BBC 1Xtra, The Independent, Music Week, The Sun, Nation of Billions and Clash magazine (among others), Hardy released tracks ‘Rapper’, (which scored a top 40 in the Official UK singles charts for three consecutive weeks), ‘Naij’ and ‘Best Life’, (which has gained over 3 million streams on Spotify and 2 million views on YT since its release, 4 weeks ago). All while achieving a 1st Class BA (Hons) degree in Business Accounting from Brunel University.
He plays the O2 Ritz on the 11th October
