Hip hop stars DJ Format (pictured) and Abdominal MC are reuniting for the first time in 10 years for a Blackpool gig.

They’re being brought to the resort by local promoter and member of resort-based The Cheeky Keys Ric Hulme, following on from the successful show by Californian trio Ugly Duckling earlier this year.

“After speaking with both Abdominal and DJ Format’s agent we managed to organise this new event which is set to be outstanding,” Ric, who runs Dope Promo, said.

The duo will be at Bootleg Social, on Topping Street, on Saturday, November 14.

A spokesman added: “With fans flocking across the country to see Abdominal and The Oblique’s UK tour earlier this year, it was clear as day that the MC sidekick of DJ Format was still renowned for his unique sound and delivery.

“A huge highlight from each show was when he and his band performed a string of DJ Format and Abdominal tracks to rapturous applause and it was moments like these that cemented the idea of getting both DJ Format and Abdominal back together and touring the UK again - something that hasn’t taken place for over 10 years.”

Support on the night will come from rock/hip hop band Eye The Bomb from Blackpool.

Advanced tickets cost £10 from Bootleg or online at www.dopepromo.co.uk, or £12.50 on the door.
