Tinie Tempah to play London gig for disabled club

Rapper teams up with Radio 1 presenter Jameela Jamil for 'Why Not People?' concert

Tinie Tempah is set to headline a concert for the disabled this summer.

The rapper will perform at London’s Troxy on July 1 in support of Radio 1 presenter Jameela Jamil’s initiative Why Not People?

The club has been curated to cater to the access and needs of disabled people at live gigs and events.

Members will be given a first shot at tickets, which they’ll be able to get for up to three friends.

The launch will also give disabled gig-goers the opportunity to experience SubPac audio technology, which directs low frequencies to the body to help users “feel the sound”, offering a physical dynamic to the music.

Tickets to the exclusive launch are on sale from next Friday (1 May.) For more information, visit the Why Not People? official website Whynotpeople.com.

Why Not People? has already received support from Sam Smith, Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson, Coldplay, James Blake and Ed Sheeran.

Tempah in the past has said his next album is likely to be his last.

The rapper added that he is most likely to release music in a playlist format after the release of his third LP.

”This is a Spotify/iTunes/shuffle generation,” he said. ”I don’t think people really listen to albums completely from track one to twelve. People now curate their own playlists, so I think it’s clever to beat them to it and say, ‘Here it is, done for you.’

”A third album will emerge some time, but I think another after that is uncertain.”
