The Streets has canceled all its 2022 gigs after ‘worst week’ of Mike Skinnerof life.

The Dry Your Eyes hitmakers returned to the stage this summer with a string of festive shows and have planned to embark on their own shows in January and February next year.

However, the 43-year-old rapper has now confirmed the tour has stopped as he doesn’t think the sale is ‘fair’ ticket for fans when The coronavirus pandemic is causing a lot of uncertainty.

He wrote on Instagram: ‘I must say with a very heavy heart that we have decided to cancel all live shows for 2022.

‘It’s not fair to keep taking money for your ticket knowing that with one case of fraud, the whole thing has to stop. I’m really sorry to let you down. This is the worst week of the worst year of my life. ‘

Mike did not elaborate on the events that prompted him to cancel the tour and hasn’t posted on Instagram for more than two weeks.

The singer recently admitted to one of The Streets’ biggest hits, 2004’s Fit But You Know It – whose lyrics include ‘Look, I think you’re about eight or nine / Maybe even nine half in four times’ – not getting old.

He confessed: ‘I winced a little at Fit But You Know It. I think the world changes. I never review the document, but apparently other people review it and I rely on it because that’s how I pay the bills.

‘I just think I’m getting older now and the world is slowly becoming unrecognizable who you were born to and that’s okay. I think we should probably have empathy for how much the world has changed. ‘

But Mike thinks social media users need to be more aware of contextual factors before they criticize his work.

He reflects: ‘I think the social network is going to have to figure out how to deal with the context problem.

‘I think context exists in the real world, what someone looks like is pretty important to what they’re saying. And on Twitter, you don’t get there to any satisfactory degree.

‘And it also works when you look back at things. So perhaps the best is Fit But You Know. It can be seen as something cheeky that may have come of age.

“In the context of the FHM culture and Nuts magazine, it would probably wake up a little more than that, but certainly less awake now.”
