Legendary hip-hop group Arrested Development have announced a one-off London show in celebration of their 30th anniversary.
Taking place at the capital’s 606 Club in Chelsea, the band’s current line-up will feature original founding member Todd Thomas, with vocal assistance from Tasha LaRae & Fareeda. JJ Boogie (guitar), One Love (vocals/MC) and Eric Dozier (keyboards) will also join Thomas onstage, alongside drummer Corey Raymond.
Founded in 1988 in Atlanta, Georgia, Arrested Development’s positive messaging, also referred to as “conscious rap” were a significant counterweight to the darker themes of the burgeoning gangsta rap scene that had spearheaded the genre over the years. Five years on from their formation, the band also became first ever hip-hop act to win the “Best New Artist” Grammy, also picking up a second statue for “Best Rap Performance” while topping several critics polls and were named Rolling Stone magazine’s “Band of the Year”.
The 606 Club appearance will take place on 12th November – head over here to book; tickets start from £50.
