Tinie Tempah announces UK tour and collaborations with Labrinth

by Martin


English rapper Tinie Tempah has today revealed information into a 2013 arena tour which will see him play 11 dates from Aberdeen to London.

The star has also confirmed that Labrinth will feature on two of his new songs for his forthcoming album Demonstration.

Tinie Tempah spoke with Capital FM recently and has said that his second studio album which is due to be released later this year will feature some guest appearances, two of which will be with Labrinth: “I can officially say with you guys, and I haven’t told anyone else, but I’ve got two songs with Labrinth on this album.”

“I think with me and Lab, we kind of started in terms of crossing over to this incredible mainstream world at the same time.”


He went on to say: “We’re still just trying to get used to it, get accustomed to it, adapt to this new environment and enjoy it at the same time.”

“When we were in Ibiza we had already won so many awards and had so much chart success that we hadn’t even enjoyed yet, that when we got out there it was like, let’s lie down, let’s have a drink and let’s have a good time, but the songs got done. The songs got done in the end.”

Tinie Tempah has also confirmed a 2013 arena tour which will run throughout December. The extensive tour will see him visit 11 venues between the 2nd and 18th of December.
