Monday 14th March 8am – Award winning artist Tinie Tempah has today announced that he will be hitting the road once more in October/November this year to headline his first ever arena tour. After the sell-out success of his recent headline tour, this outing will see Tinie Tempah taking to the arena stages in 7 cities across the UK.
Tinie Tempah’s number one, debut album ‘Disc-overy’ has sold over half a million copies to date and earned him 2 Brit Awards – one for Best Single for track ‘Pass Out’ and the other for Best Breakthrough Artist, both of which were voted for by the public. The album has also spawned 2 number one singles’ Pass Out’ (certified Platinum) and ‘Written In The Stars’ (certified Gold) and 2 top five singles ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ and ‘Frisky’. His fifth single ‘Wonderman’ featuring Ellie Goulding was released last week.
As well as his arena tour later in the year, Tinie Tempah will also be rocking crowds at various UK festivals including Wireless with Barclaycard in Hyde Park and V Festival.
