Kendrick Lamar & James Blake announce Arena show

US rapper Kendrick Lamar has announced he will bring his DAMN tour to Manchester early next year with James Blake in tow.

The news comes as Kendrick Lamar concludes his sell-out tour of the US, including a headlining performance at Coachella. The European leg of the tour will begin in Ireland in February 2018 and will pass through Manchester on Saturday February 10.

Mercury Prize winner James Blake will be on opening duties that night at Manchester Arena.
Tickets for all UK and Ireland dates go on general sale this Friday (October 6) at 9am, with LiveNation offering presale tickets a day earlier.
