He's no stranger to being in the tabloids but in late 2013 Russell Brand ended up in a very public spat with one. After the Sun on Sunday accused Brand of cheating on his girlfriend, the comedian hit back by writing a piece for the Guardian that slammed The Sun and its immoral lies, and compared Rupert Murdoch to Hitler. This prompted The Sun to retaliate with'20 Reasons why Russell Brand is the biggest hypocrite in Britain' - and so the tit for tat continued. So, bringing his Messiah Complex tour to London in early 2014, a slight adjustment to Brand's material could be predicted. For in the show, the insightful and irreverent comedian discusses the cult of celebrity personality and touches on historic figures Jesus Christ, Ghandi, Malcolm X and Hitler while also discussing the controlling power of likes of the Daily Mail, Fox News and David Cameron - perhaps the perfect opportunity to take one final swipe at The Sun.

 

About Brixton Academy

This former cinema with its art deco interior, proscenium arch and 140ft dome is London's most celebrated venue for live music, winning Best Live Venue at the NME awards for 7 years in a row. The famous sloping floor means there are great views wherever you're standing, though keeping your feet can be a problem at the more raucous rock gigs. More about Brixton Academy
