Date Posted: 10/08/12
Hit US rapper B.o.B. (born Bobby Ray Simmons) is embarking on a tour of the UK next month, to bring his brand of inventive Southern hip-hop to British audiences.
Fans should book Newcastle hotels for Saturday, September 15th to catch the first date of the tour at the Newcastle University Student Union. He then heads to Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield, London and Norwich, before finishing at Birmingham's HMV Institute on Monday, September 24th.
B.o.B. has garnered a great deal of interest from his mixtapes and second studio album Strange Clouds, which was released this year and features hit songs such as Both of Us, So Good and Out of My Mind.
A wide variety of stars have guest performances on the record, including Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj.
Last year, B.o.B. was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year and Best Rap Song for Nothin' On You (with Bruno Mars).
