Tinie to return to Brum

Chart-busting grime sensation Tinie Tempah will return to Birmingham as part of his first full headline tour.

The London-born rapper, famed for smash hit Pass Out, will take to the stage at the revamped HMV Institute in Digbeth on October 19, just over a month after the multi-million iconic venue reopens.

His number one debut single is the biggest-selling single this year by any British artist, and its follow up Frisky has seen his single sales top 750,000 copies in the UK alone.

Third single Written In The Stars is due for release in September, closely followed by his eagerly-awaited debut album Disc-Overy on Parlophone Records.

Support on the tour comes from label-mates, indie sampling American hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang, whose own debut album, The Swelly Life, is released on September 13 alongside the single All Things Go.

Tickets for the tour go on general sale from Friday, July 16.
