Story by Jack Foley
B.o.B (AKA Bobby Ray Simmons) has announced his first ever UK headline tour which will kick off in September and includes a night in London at Indigo2.
He will also make stops in Norwich, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow, Dublin and Manchester before finishing up in Sheffield at the Leadmill on September 20.
This will be B.o.B’s first UK headline tour as his last UK tour saw him support friends and label-mates Paramore in 2010, which included a phenomenal show at London’s O2 Arena.
B.o.B’s second album, Strange Clouds, was released in May and has received critical acclaim from fans around the world and debuted in the No.5 spot in the US selling over 75,000 copies in its first week.
This weekend, B.o.B will be hitting the stage alongside some of the hottest and biggest names in music at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend on Sunday, June 24.
Tickets for the September tour cost £15 (£16.50 London) and go on sale on Friday, June 22 at 9am.
