Per a press release, the upcoming gigs will spotlight legends and icons of UK garage music – from its rise back in 1994 to its domination of the popular charts between 1999 and 2001.
Speaking about bringing the genre to the stage, Megaman explained: “Beside being an artist I’m such a fan of the music; a genre created right here in the UK, which has gone on to achieve an incredible amount of Number One hits and platinum selling records, I’ve always wanted to see it concert style.
“This arena tour we have here is the first of many plans and ideas we want to execute with the brand. It’s an exciting project for us. Let’s see what the future brings.”
