He broke the news on his timeline, tweeting a link to his French production company that prompted the message, “Due to the tragic events in Paris, the tour promoter has decided to postpone the upcoming European tour until further notice.”
The cancellations come after the horrific shootings that took place at the concert venue Le Bataclan in Paris on Friday night (Nov. 13) during an Eagles of Death Metal show. Over 100 lives were reportedly taken in the tragedy.
Bigger than Festival, The Doctor’s Orders & MAMA Group present
Big Daddy Kane
7pm Monday 30th Nov 2015
@ The Jazz Café, Parkway, Camden NW1 7PG
Big Daddy Kane is a Hip-Hop legend in every sense of the word. Starting his career in the mid-eighties as part of the Juice Crew (with Marley Marl, Biz Markie, Kool G Rap, MC Shan, Roxanne Shante, Masta Ace, Craig G, Tragedy and more), he has cemented himself as one of the most important and influential rappers of all time. Almost always listed in ‘best MCs of all time’ lists, your favourite rapper’s favourite rapper has released a long list of untouchable albums that include Long Live The Kane, It’s A Big Daddy Thing, Taste Of Chocolate and timeless singles like Ain’t No Half Steppin’, Raw, Smooth Operator, Warm It Up Kane, Wrath Of Kane and Set It Off.
Kane’s live shows are guaranteed to be live, direct and full of energy. Whilst still smooth and seamless, his stage presence is one of a veteran. As part of the Bigger Than Hip-Hop festival and 25 years of The Jazz Café, this is an opportunity not to be slept on.
Run by the people from the Brixton Village Grill, we have to say that we’re not entirely sure how their message of “Old Skool Hip-Hop.. Positive Vibez Only” fits in with the concept of a chip shop, but we’ll certainly look forward to checking it out.
They’ve posted up some of their menu options on Twitter, and these include a ’10oz sirloin and chargrilled lobster’, ‘chargrilled tuna finished with an olive, caper and tomato relish’ and a ‘800g grilled red snapper, hand cut chips, rice, mixed salad, chilli lemon butter and dill sauce.’
That all sounds rather nice but does seem a world away (and most likely more expensive) than our favourite traditional chippie, the magnificent Jimmy’s Plaice some 300 metres down Coldharbour Lane.
Despite the business not being open yet, it has somehow managed to pick up 8 five star reviews on their Facebook which is quite an achievement.
The shop has applied to serve alcohol between 11am and midnight from Mon-Sun. No opening date has been announced, but a Facebook update yesterday said, “Not long to go now….”
Protests have erupted in central London against the re-election of Britain’s Conservative prime minister David Cameron, with demonstrators throwing bottles, cans and smoke bombs at riot police.
Scuffles broke out when the demonstrators, blaring hooters, banging pots and chanting obscenities, confronted lines of police outside the gate leading to the prime minister’s Downing Street residence. At one point a bicycle was hurled at police.
Police arrested five people, and four police officers and one member of police staff were injured policing this protest, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.
This remarkable footage is 12 minutes long and gives a unique insight into what was actually happening on the streets of London today.
