The Hardy Season Tour is Hardy Caprio’s second headline tour in 2018, following his January UK dates which sold out within minutes of going on sale.

The next in line to fly the flag for Croydon, from where Stormzy, Section Boys and Krept & Konan also hail, 21-year-old Hardy Caprio has accumulated 1 million single sales since the release of debut single, Unsigned (ft. One Acen) and has been earmarked by music critics as the ‘next to blow’ after gate-crashing and setting his own tone in the UK Grime, Rap and Garage scene.

Hardy Caprio first started making noise with his SBTV Warm-Up session, where he freestyled over Tinie Tempah’s Wifey Riddim. The back-to-back release of Caprio’s Hardy Season EP and his Hollywood EP in 2017 further cemented Hardy’s substantial fan base, ahead of single Unsigned (ft. One Acen) which is now certified Gold in the UK, after passing the 350,000 sales mark and racking up more than 30 million streams. Tracks Super Soaker and C’Mon followed prior to Hardy performing at Spotify UK’s critically acclaimed inaugural live event, Who We Be Live, at London’s Alexandra Palace.

After being tipped as an artist to watch for 2018 by BBC 1Xtra, The Independent, Music Week, The Sun, Nation of Billions and Clash magazine, Hardy released tracks Rapper, Naij and Best Life, the latter of which has gained over 3 million streams on Spotify and 2 million views on YouTube since its release. All this while achieving a 1st Class BA (Hons) degree in Business Accounting from Brunel University.

Hardy Caprio is at O2 Academy Leicester on 13th October.
