A Guy Called Gerald is celebrating 30 years of the project

Mancunian selector A Guy Called Gerald will celebrate three decades since the debut of his iconic moniker with a run of extended sets across the globe.

Known for his contribution to the seminal 808 State project and his previous releases on top imprints like Sender Records and Perlon, Gerald Simpson was a key artist during the early days of the acid house movement.

The celebratory mini-tour first saw Gerald play shows in Japan in August and Sheffield in September, with future party spots including Dubai, Amsterdam and London.

The London show will take place on October 27th which will be exactly 30 years since his first ever set as A Guy Called Gerald.

More dates are expected to be announced soon.
