Tinie Tempah postpones his UK Arena tour until next year

by Martin


Tinie Tempah was due to start his UK tour in December to promote his latest album ‘Demonstration’ which was released earlier this month but the star has revealed that a number of these shows have been postponed or cancelled.

In a statement released by Tinie Tempah he states that he doesn’t feel like he is ready to put on a good enough show and that his fans deserve better.

Previously announced shows in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Leeds and Newcastle have been cancelled entirely due to logistical problems.

He took to Twitter to reveal the news but he also tweeted about a special treat for Scottish fans even hinting at a possible festival appearance.


His schedule for Manchester has been changed and his Birmingham LG Arena show has been moved to two nights at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton in March 2014. (Full list of changes can be seen below).

In a statement released a short while ago Tinie said:

“Guys, I only think it’s right to tell you that after delivering ‘Demonstration’ and working flat out trying to make an album you guys would be proud of.

I feel I haven’t had enough time to prepare for the December Tour to make it the best it can be. So myself and management have decided to postpone it until April so I have enough time to rehearse all the new songs and make this Tour even better than the last one.

Apologies to everyone who was looking forward to it April will be amazing…I promise. See you then!”
