After his forthcoming London show at Heaven nightclub on 26th November, which sold out in less time than it takes to listen to the album the show celebrates, Kano has added a second "Home Sweet Home Revisited" date.

The newly announced show is at Manchester’s Gorilla on 24th November and marks the 10th anniversary of Kano’s ground-breaking debut, "Home Sweet Home." Support on the night will be the fast rising rapper Bonkaz.

"Home Sweet Home" was preceded by the massive underground single and perennial live favourite "P’s & Q’s," and included collaborations with Mike Skinner, Diplo, D Double E, Ghetts, Terror Danjah, Mikey J, Fraser T Smith and Paul Epworth.

The album showcased Kano’s rapid-fire yet seemingly effortless flows, and cemented his status as one of the best rappers in the country.

In the decade since, Kano has gone on to release three more albums; several mixtapes, singles and EPs; embark on a successful acting career and land a lead role in Channel 4 drama "Top Boy."

More recently, Kano has whetted appetites with new tracks "Hail" and "New Banger," as he continues recording his next release in the studio.

"At first, this was something I couldn't see myself doing, as I’m not too bothered about the whole '10-year' thing. Then a phone call from Wretch 32 changed my stance - he told me it would 'be a sin' if I didn't mark this anniversary with a celebration. Now I can't wait to touch the stage…"
