Today D‑Block Europe announce their huge 2021 arena tour, includ­ing a show at The O2, Lon­don. The May tour will begin in Dub­lin at Olympia and fin­ish in Manchester AO Arena and will be the duo’s biggest tour to date by far. Fans who pur­chase the album from the band’s store will have exclus­ive access to pre-sale for 24 hours. Pre-sale access is from Wed­nes­day 14th Octo­ber at 9am, with gen­er­al on sale on Thursday 15th Octo­ber at 9am.

The tour announce­ment comes fol­low­ing the release of their highly anti­cip­ated debut album ‘The Blue­print – Us Vs. Them’ last Fri­day. Fuelled with 29 tracks, the new body of work is the duo’s most com­plete and com­pre­hens­ive pro­ject to date. ‘Shame On Me’ see the pair take respons­ib­il­ity for their own actions, while ‘Proud’ is a con­scious let­ter to their loved ones and ‘Top Thai’ ref­er­ences their Muslim val­ues. Des­pite three mix­tape releases last year, the album sees them con­tin­ue to push their sound and deliv­ers the energy D‑Block Europe’s die-hard fans con­tin­ue to crave. With DBE not wish­ing to rely on fea­tures, there are only a select couple of UK Rap heavy-weights in Stef­flon Don and Aitch, as well as sing­er-song­writer Raye on the album. To cel­eb­rate the album’s release, D‑Block Europe put on a two-day pop-up shop this pre­vi­ous week­end (Octo­ber 10th and 11th) in Lon­don.

D‑Block Europe, com­prom­ising of Young Adz and Dirt­bike LB, have stead­ily posi­tioned them­selves as pion­eers of a whole new wave of rap, bet­ter known for its dis­tinct style, unfiltered lyr­ics and dynam­ic flow. Their 2019 debut mix­tape ‘Home Alone’ peaked at #6 in the UK Offi­cial Charts, with ‘PTSD’  fol­low­ing shortly after achiev­ing a #4 spot. This led to two shows at Alex­an­dra Palace in Novem­ber which sold out in a just four hours. Shortly after came the release of their third mix­tape of 2019 ‘Street Trauma’ which deb­uted at #9, giv­ing D Block Europe the title as the only UK artist(s) to have three top ten mix­tapes in one year. The start of 2020 also saw D Block Europe receive a BRIT Award nom­in­a­tion for Best Brit­ish Group.
