FRESH from Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, American rapper B.o.B, AKA Bobby Ray Simmons, has announced his first UK headline tour.
His last British tour saw him support friends and label-mates Paramore in 2010, but after a number of chart hits, including Nothin’ on You and Airplanes, he’s now going out on the road alone.
His second album, Strange Clouds, which was released in May, debuted in the number 5 spot in the U.S., selling over 75,000 copies in its first week.
The first official single, So Good went top 10 in the UK and took the number 11 spot in the U.S.
Now he’s gearing up to release Both Of Us (featuring Taylor Swift) which will be released on July 23.
He will play Newcastle University on September 15.
Tickets, priced £15, are on sale from www.gigsandtours.com and 0844 811 0051.
