Gig of the week: The Sugarhill Gang play Glasto warm-up at Esquires

Hip Hop pioneers The Sugarhill Gang are coming to Bedford - they'll be live at Esquires on Thursday (June 22).

SHG were the first ever Hip Hop artists to have a song in the billboard top 40 with one of the most played records of all time, the seminal 1979 single 'Rappers Delight', and followed with other classics like 'Apache', '8th Wonder' and 'Showdown’.

The guys are back together touring Europe after a slew of festival performances last summer, and come to Esquires for a very special intimate show. This is going to be damn funky, and a lot of fun!

'I said a hip hop the hippie the hippie, to the hip hip hop and you don't stop, the rock it to the bang bang boogie, say up jump the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat!'

Tickets are £15 in advance, book here
