New York rapper Immortal Technique will visit the UK for a single show later this year. The politically charged MC will appear at O2 Academy Islington on Tuesday 21st August.
**An additional date has been added on Monday 20th August due to high demand for tickets**
The show will be a rare treat for fans of underground hip hop as Immortal Technique shows in the UK are few and far between. Having previously collaborated with the likes of Mos Def, DJ Green Lantern, Chuck D, KRS-One, Lowkey and Dead Prez, Immortal Technique is one of the most exciting and outspoken rappers to have emerged in the last decade and a half.
Although his album catalogue is not extensive, his Revolutionary Vol ! + 2, The 3rd World and The Martyr are regarded as being among some of the best from the post millennium.
Joining him at the show are fellow New Yorkers Chino XL, whose RICANstruction The Black Rosary appeared on Immortal Technique's Viper Records, and Poison Pen, a peer of Immortal Technique on the city's rap battle circuit. Local support comes from London based Irish DJ SnuffOne.
