The tour is something that has been in the works for a bit and seeing as the UK is now enjoying respite from restrictions that came as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, the second quarter of the year is infact a good time to get him in front of fans.” his Publicist Orisha revealed in a zoom meeting with men of the press.
