from 750.00

On May 12th, 1982, this was the first hip hop show to come to British shores and the sold out crowd didn’t really know what to expect. On the stage there were no instruments just microphones for the Furious Five MC’s, and a raised stage with two decks where Grandmaster Flash performed his turntable wizardry.
