Tinie Tempah: Frisky
Thursday, 15th Jul 2010
Music fans can catch Tinie Tempah on tour this year when the chart-topping star is set to embark on his first headline gigs.

The performer, who hit the UK number one spot earlier this year with his track Pass Out, is to take to the road after a string of successful festival shows this summer.

Fans have already been able to catch him performing at Glastonbury and T4 On the Beach, but now they can see him do a full set of tracks from his hotly anticipated debut album Disc-Overy.

He has honed his performances supporting huge stars including Rihanna and Jay-Z during their British dates and is now preparing to take centre stage himself.

The first night on the tour is set to be at the Newcastle O2 Academy, with shows scheduled for locations including Cardiff, Manchester and Sheffield.

On October 29th the tour will wind up at Bristol's O2 Academy, with tickets for all dates going on general release on Friday 16th July at 09:00 BST.
