Friday Night Live - A brand new outdoor live music event for 2020
Brought to you by the team behind the successful Sunday Sessions and Let’s Rock festival series, Friday Night Live is a brilliant new outdoor event for 2020 offering an evening of the very best in live music. The inaugural Friday Night Live happens on May 22, 2020 at Earlham Park in Norwich and will feature The Streets, one of the most innovative and cherished UK artists of recent years. Special guests to be announced shortly, with more Friday Night Live events to be launched over the coming months.
Say Friday Night Live founders Nick Billinghurst and Matt Smith, “Friday Night Live will bring the biggest and best artists to outdoor locations all over the UK for an evening of unforgettable live music, and we’re absolutely thrilled to launch the event with an artist as iconic as The Streets.”
Mike Skinner, aka The Streets, is a native of Birmingham/Barnet in the UK - a rapper, producer, DJ, singer, writer, actor who happens to have made some of the most important British music of this millennium. His debut album “Original Pirate Material”, released in 2002 is widely regarded to have changed the face of British rap music, and his second album “A Grand Don’t Come For Free” was a huge worldwide success spawning hit singles like “Fit But You Know It” and “Dry Your Eyes”. After 5 albums and over 5 million record sales, Skinner quit The Streets and worked on other musical projects as well as reinventing himself as a successful DJ playing Bass and Grime. In 2018 Skinner revived The Streets with his phenomenal touring band (which also features Rob Harvey of The Music on guitar/vox) for a rapturously received tour that continued into 2019. In 2021 The Streets will release a new album and his debut feature film, both entitled “The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light”.
