There's absolutely no stopping the Ringsend group.
Following their incendiary performance at Longitude earlier in the month, as well their Live at the Marquee the month before, Versatile have added another defining milsetone to their still young career.
This afternoon, the lads shared the news on their Twitter feed that no tickets were left for their 3Arena gig.
We love you all ❤️
This will come as a surprise to absolutely no one who has followed Versatile's development throughout the last few years. From releasing a series of hilarious comedic videos throughout the last four years, to sharing their 7-minute opus 'Ketamine' in 2018, Versatile have built up a dedicated fanbase.
In the wake of the success of 'Ketamine', the group have - quite literally - showed their versatility by dabbling in a number of different genres and styles. The laidback, synth-heavy love song 'Don't Change' showed that they could get earnest when they wanted to; ''Lost and Found' was a glorious trip-hop nightmare; while their most recent single 'Prefontaine' showed that they could match their outrageous lyrics will a club-ready banger.
Now, the years of experimenting in styles - visually and musically - has led to the first ever sold-out domestic rap show in the 3Arena (that's upwards of 13,000 tickets sold).
In a recent interview with the lads, we were reliably informed that they're working hard making their debut album (they released their first mixtape, Dublin City G's, in 2017). With the care and detail they put into their singles and videos, we've absolutely no doubt that by the time it arrives it'll be the real thing.
