Ezra Collective have announced a UK tour. The new dates – which culminate in a hometown finale at London’s Roundhouse – are listed below and on sale from Thursday (18th April).
The announcement comes ahead of Ezra Collective’s debut album, You Can’t Steal My Joy, out next Friday, 26th April. The exuberant LP features Jorja Smith, KOKOROKO and Loyle Carner, and looks destined to cement the band’s status as one of the UK’s most exciting groups.
Ezra Collective’s incredible musicianship and spirited approach to music – which draws on afrobeat, Latin, hip-hop, grime and more – has seen them break out beyond the thriving UK jazz scene. The five friends have already completed a mosh pit-filled and totally sold out UK tour, played at Quincy Jones’ birthday party, and recently toured America for the first time.
Ezra Collective You Can’t Steal My Joy UK tour:
20 Nov – Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
21 Nov – Stylus, Leeds
22 Nov – Oran Mor, Glasgow
23 Nov – Gorilla, Manchester
27 Nov – Concorde 2, Brighton
29 Nov – Trinity, Bristol
30 Nov – Roundhouse, London
