The hip hop master plays one-off London date...

Dr Dre, who had a recent Number Six UK hit with ‘Still Dre’, is to play London Brixton Academy on May 1.

It’ll be the hip hop star’s first ever UK gig – his former group NWA were due to perform here more than a decade ago, but were forced to cancel shows as they were under FBI investigation at the time.

Dr Dre has been busy recently producing a number of tracks on Eminem’s new album ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ which is set for release on May 22.
