'iLL Manors' rapper has booked 11 shows for early next year
Plan B has announced a full UK arena tour for February 2013.
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.”
Last month, Plan B, aka Ben Drew launched his third studio album in London with an all-star cast including Labrinth, Kano, John Cooper Clarke and Chase And Status. He followed this with another intimate show at London’s 100 Club last week as part of the Converse Represent series.
