Skindred to Kick Off Smile (Again) UK Tour in Hull on October 18

Skindred, who teased a tour on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, will indeed hit the UK for a nine-date tour beginning in Hull on 18 October. The Smile (Again) UK Tour is sure to be a big celebration of the year the band have experienced.

“Myself and my Brothers in Skindred are so excited to be heading back out on the road in the UK,” frontman Benji Webbe said. “We have had nothing but amazing vibes since we dropped our album Smile.” 

It has been a great year for the band, with Smile going straight to No.2 in the Official UK Album Chart. “Due to the amount of messages we have received,” Webbe said, “we head back out to some of our favourite hotspots in the UK to mash it up again in the way only Skindred can. 

“This Heavy Metal punk rock reggae sound system is about to rock ya all even more. You might have heard the songs, but I swear our live show is some next-level energy ting brov, so grab your tickets and your helicopter propels and get involved in this Dred extravaganza. 

“To the older Dredites and the new, let’s bring the magic like only Skindred do. The Unity Sound rings true. So you know what to do.”

Tickets are on sale now, except for the Leicester and Oxford shows, which are available from 5 p.m. Friday, 17 May.

Skindred played their largest headline show to date at Wembley Arena in 2024, while they have also continued to prove the hunger for the band internationally, performing to rabid crowds in each corner of the world, including their first-ever show in New Zealand and most recently conquering Sick New World festival in Las Vegas.
