Sugarhill Gang + Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio + L100 Cypher
June 15 @ 7:00 pm - June 16 @ 1:00 am£13
The Sugarhill Gang, along with Grandmaster Melle Mel and Scorpio of the Furious 5, Godfathers of hip hop, are coming to Liverpool for a very special show.
It’s been 50 years since The Beatles created one of the defining moments of the 1960s with their momentous gig on the roof. It’s been 40 years since the Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight took rap music to a global audience, cementing the hip hop movement’s place in popular culture.
Now, taking inspiration from Liverpool’s most famous sons, fellow legends the Sugarhill Gang – along with Grandmaster Melle Mel and Scorpio of the Furious 5 – take over the roof of The Shankly Hotel on Saturday 15th June to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Rapper’s Delight and rock the house with classics like The Message, White Lines and Apache.
With support from some of our very own local Liverpool rap talent – to be announced. Liverpool and New York have always been sisters – both raw, vibrant, progressive cities bouncing to their own beats. Get ready for a crazy Liverpool V NYC musical cultureclash…see you on the roof!
