Tinie Tempah – Australian Tour (Win Tickets In Your City)

Future Entertainment is pleased to announce that Mercury Prize nominated grime king Tinie Tempah, and drum n bass and dubstep duo Chase and Status are set to play three special UK flavoured solo shows during the Future Music Festival tour! Completing this powerhouse bill is the one co-headliners Chase and Status describe as “The voice of our generation”,  Zane Lowe.

Excitement is growing for the return of Tinie Tempah who is now performing with a full live band and is set to deliver a fast and furious show. With his roots in London’s underground scene, UK rap superstar Tinie hit the ground running with his monster anthem and debut single Wifey back in 2006. A cult hero with the UK rap fraternity, indie kids and grime rollers alike, this high octane MC has been kicking goals left right and centre.  2010 and 2011 have seen Tinie rise to global superstardom with his debut album Discovery producing the monster hits Pass Out, Written In The Stars, Swedish House Mafia collaboration Miami 2 Ibiza, Invincible Feat. Kelly Rowland and Till I’m Gone featuring Brooklyn rapper Wiz Khalifa. He’s also featured with Chase & Status on their track Hitz.

Tinie is set to go to go even larger in 2012 – particularly if his latest collaboration Earthquake with fellow UK rapper Labrinth is anything to go by. Having already scooped the pool with Best Breakthrough Act and Best Single chimes at the iconic 2011 Brit Awards, Best UK Hip Hop/Grime Act, Best Newcomer and Best Video at the Mobo Awards and Best solo artist at the GQ awards… the sky’s the limit for this eloquent hero. Chase & Status are two world-renowned producers on a bass-driven mission to make the genre their very own. Comprising of the skills of Saul Milton and Will Kennard, this barnstorming duo have been crafting DnB and Dubstep bombs and letting them loose on unsuspecting dance floors since 2003. Not content with writing and releasing their own music, the pair have been co-writing and producing for the world’s musical elite, working with Rihanna, Jay Z and Snoop Dog to name just a few.

With two stunning albums to their name (2009’s More Than A Lot and 2011’s No More Idols which is certified Double Platinum in the UK), an arsenal of A-List radio tracks boasting the killer likes of festival anthem Blind Faith, Pieces and End Credits co-written with Plan B, and their new single Flashing lights, the duo top the billing at festivals all over the planet with their incredible full live band.  Chase & Status are known across the globe as bringing the riot to dance music and this reputation has earned them a nomination for Best British Group at the 2012 Brit Awards along side industry giants they can now call their peers, Coldplay and the Arctic Monkeys. Chase & Status are at the top of their game and 2012 is only set to get bigger!

Rounding up this all-star line up, is Zane Lowe. In the legendary world of UK radio, there are few bigger stars on the airwaves than Mr Zane Lowe. Presenting his own self-titled show on BBC Radio 1 four nights a week, Zane is a certified tastemaker whose reputation for breaking hot new acts, the next big single and stars of the future is second to none. His track record of awarding his Fresh Meat Award is tantamount to this, with previous winners including household names like Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Kasabian and Kaiser Chiefs. A DJ in his own right, Zane’s mash, genre defying sound has seen him play support roles the likes of Muse, Foo Fighters and The Prodigy at sold-out stadium gigs, and feature at club nights and special events all over the world. The shows will take place in Sydney on Tuesday 6th March, Melbourne on Thursday 8th March and Brisbane on Tuesday 13th March.
