Dancehall superstar Popcaan has announced his European headline tour for 2023, where he will be performing his new album ‘Great is He’ for the first time.
The 13-date stretch, produced by Live Nation, kicks off on Saturday, 6 May at Paris’ Salle Pleyel, making stops in Ireland, the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Germany, before closing the tour in Madrid, Spain on Thursday, 5 May at La Riviera. This will be the first time that Popcaan has performed his new album in full.
The album will feature tracks such as the new single ‘We Caa Done’ featuring Drake. ‘Great Is He’ follows ‘Fixtape’, Popcaan’s 2020 project. Since then, he’s teamed up with Dre Skull and Mr Eazi for the song “Sekkle & Bop,” and released solo songs including “Skeleton Cartier” and “Next to Me.”
Popcaan has achieved global fame for his unique blend of Reggae and Dancehall sounds. His music has been propelled to popularity by clubs and social media, accumulating over 1 billion streams and 3.3 million followers across social networks.
His debut album ‘Where We Come From’ received critical acclaim, and in 2014 he was nominated for a MOBO Award in the Best Reggae Act category. This was his fourth consecutive nomination, and he went on to win two MOBO Awards in 2015 and 2016.
As one of the most successful dancehall artists, Popcaan has managed to create a global career for himself, with collaborations with some of the biggest names in music across a variety of genres.
