BLACKBERY PRESENTS ‘TINIE TEMPAH UK ARENA TOUR’ EXTRA SHOWS ADDED IN WEMBLEY, NOTTINGHAM, GLASGOW AND ABERDEEN WITH VERY SPECIAL GUEST J.COLE “His approach has spoken to a generation louder than any other British musician has in years… [and] what we get is an unashamed pop show, powered by choruses and charisma.” NME Tuesday 22nd March – Due to phenomenal demand, award winning artist Tinie Tempah has announced that there will be extra shows in Wembley, Nottingham, Glasgow and Aberdeen added to the ‘Blackberry presents Tinie Tempah’ tour. These shows will go on sale at 9am on Friday 25th March. It was announced last week that J.Cole; the first artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, has been added as Very Special Guest on Tinie’s forthcoming arena tour. Cole recently toured the UK on the sell out Drake tour to stunning critical acclaim. Please note that J. Cole will not be supporting on these 4 additional shows. 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. J.Cole made himself notable through a scholarly approach to the game – no small feat considering his Magna Cum Laude distinction upon graduating from St. John’s University. If his sudden christening by JAY-Z shocked the haters, their doubts were quickly refuted when J. Cole dropped his recent mixtape The Warm Up, as well as a coveted guest verse on JAY-Z’s Blueprint 3 with “A Star is Born”. The mixtape encapsulates not just who J. Cole is as a rapper, but who he is as an artist and a person. 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. ‘It is a lovely moment for all concerned when a performer such as this enters his pomp.’ The Times TINIE TEMPAH OCTOBER 2011 MONDAY 31 LIVERPOOL ECHO ARENA – SOLD OUT NOVEMBER 2011 TUESDAY 1 NEWCASTLE METRO RADIO ARENA WEDNESDAY 2 GLASGOW SECC – SOLD OUT FRIDAY 4 LONDON O2 ARENA SATURDAY 5 BOURNEMOUTH BIC SUNDAY 6 BIRMINGHAM LG ARENA MONDAY 7 MANCHESTER MEN TUESDAY 8 CARDIFF MOTORPOINT ARENA THURSDAY 10 WEMBLEY ARENA FRIDAY 11 NOTTINGHAM ARENA SUNDAY 13 GLASGOW SECC MONDAY 14 ABERDEEN AECC Tickets for additional shows go onsale 9am on Friday 25th March priced at £21.50 Regional / £23.50 London (subject to booking fee) and are available from Remaining available tickets for previously announced shows on sale now priced at £21.50 Regional / £23.50 London (subject to booking fee) and available from For further information on Tinie please call Janet Choudry on 0207 752 5291 or email For more info on J.Cole contact Steve Guest more info on Tinie go to
