YouTube gaming sensation KSI, recently signed to Island Records/Universal Music, has announced the details of his first ever UK headline tour for November 2016.
KSI is an unstoppable force on YouTube. Since launching his gaming channel back in 2009, it has become the most viewed in the UK and has already amassed over 15,000,000 subscribers on his 2 channels with over 2.5 billion video views. Growing at 500,000 new subscribers across his 2 channels and 130 million views every month, plus with over 2 million Twitter and 2 million Facebook fans, he is a modern day Social Media superstar.
Storming straight to the No. 1 spot on the UK iTunes albums chart with his new EP ‘Keep Up’ KSI beat legends David Bowie and Adele, while also holding the Top Ten spot on iTunes charts around the world. While still owning YouTube, 2015 saw KSI officially become a recording artist, releasing singles ‘Lamborghini’ featuring P Money, reaching No.30 in the UK charts without radio support, and ‘Keep Up’ featuring JME.
Having completed two headline sold out London shows KSI has recently released his new single with Mista Silva ‘Goes Off’ and debut EP ‘Keep Up’, featuring collaborations with the cream of Grime and UK Hip Hop, JME, Sway, Youngs Teflon, Nick Brewer and more.
