Black Grape is an English alternative dance band from Salford, consisting of Shaun Ryder and rapper Kermit.
Formed in 1993 after the Happy Mondays first split, the band released their debut album, 'It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah', in 1995, which hit #1 in the UK Albums Chart and contained the singles Reverend Black Grape, In The Name of the Father and Kelly's Heroes. The band released their second album, ‘Stupid Stupid Stupid’, in 1997, before disbanding. They reformed in 2010 for one show at London’s The Coronet and headed out on The Comeback Tour in 2015, followed by a winter 2016 tour in support of the 21st anniversary of ‘It’s Great When You’re Straight... Yeah’.
Returning in 2018, Black Grape are set to tour the UK this autumn. Then, they'll follow the tour up with yet more live shows in spring 2019. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
