Arrested Development


Hip-hop trailblazers Arrested Development are set to appear at the Junction, in Cambridge, as part of their upcoming UK tour.

The group formed in 1991 and have gone on to release 10 albums, picking up two Grammy awards along the way.

Their hit song Mr Wendal brought much-needed attention to the plight of the homeless and the group gave half of that singles royalties to the National Coalition of the Homeless.

Their dance hit, People Everyday addressed the tension between ignorance and consciousness, while paying homage to Sly & the Family Stone.

For their first UK tour in decades Arrested Development will be playing music from their 20-year career along with new material.

They will appear at the Junction at 7pm on Thursday, February 19. Tickets, priced £21, are available from or by calling 01223 511 511.
