The Basement goes city hopping with the not so "Local MVP"

Linking up with tour manager Sammy Bluetooth to give you guys an insight into life on the road with Saintè, The Basement went tour-bus-tier-behind-the-scenes on the UK leg of Sainté’s tour.

After catapulting onto the scene during the pandemic, it’s clear at the shows that his listeners are relishing the opportunity to appreciate his music on a new level.

This was the official tour for the Leicster-based artist’s latest EP, Vacation, but of course the setlist was extensive to make up for time and tour dates lost to the pandemic. Performing his projects Out Of The Blue, Local MVP, and Vacation in their entirety, Saintè’s shows are meticulously crafted – to say the least.

Take a look at the tour through Sammy’s eyes and hear what he had to say about the stops along the way.
