'iLL Manors' rapper has booked 11 shows for early next year

Tickets for Plan B‘s UK arena tour in February 2013 go onsale today (September 14) at 9am (BST).

The rapper, who released his new film and accompanying soundtrack ‘iLL Manors’ earlier this summer, will play 11 shows across the UK.

The gigs begin at Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on February 1 and run until February 15, when the rapper plays Aberdeen’s AECC.

He has also scheduled shows in London, Bournemouth, Manchester, Plymouth, Birmingham, Glasgow, Cardiff, Nottingham and Brighton

Speaking previously about ‘Ill Manors’, he said: “It’s a mirror, a reflection of today. And of the problems that have been swept under the carpet since the riots put them on the front pages. That’s why I made it so visceral, to get under people’s skin. I wanted people to misunderstand it, and to start debating it again.”

Plan B will play:

Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (February 1)
Manchester Arena (2)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (4)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (5)
Bournemouth International Centre (7)
Birmingham LG Arena (8)
London O2 Arena (9)
Brighton Centre (11)
