Tinchy Stryder

Tinchy Stryder

On Thursday 4th November 2010 Tinchy Stryder will be performing a one-off live date at The O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. Tinchy will be joined on stage on the night by an array of special guests and friends including just announced N-Dubz and support from Devlin. All proceeds from the tickets sales for the night will be donated to Alicia Keys’ charity, Keep a Child Alive (KCA).

Star In The Hood Tinchy Stryder was 2009’s biggest selling male solo artist in the UK. In the past eighteen months Tinchy Stryder has scored two no. 1 singles and a no. 2 album in addition to embarking on two nationwide sell-out headline tours, opening the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury 2010 and supporting both Akon and Rihanna on the UK legs of their recent Arena tours. Tinchy Stryder will be releasing through 4th & Broadway/ Island Records his third album, ‘Third Strike’, on November 8th this year.

Tinchy Stryder was inspired by KCA’s work after attending their recent Black Ball London 2010, hosted by the charity’s co-founder Alicia Keys: “The work that Alicia Keys and Keep a Child Alive do to help those suffering with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India is very inspiring. I hope that by donating the proceeds from this gig I can help further their work.”

Keep a Child Alive (KCA) is dedicated to providing lifesaving treatment, care and support services to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.  KCA currently funds 10 clinical and orphan care centers in India, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and South Africa. To date, Keep a Child Alive have helped over 250,000.

Just announced to appear with Tinchy Stryder are N-Dubz, who along with Tinchy reached the top of the UK charts with hit single ‘Number One’. 950,000 album sales later, urban pop super-group N-Dubz will return this autumn with a brand new single “Best Behaviour” and a new musical home in All Around The World & Island Records.

Over the last four years, London born N-Dubz have Instinctively tapped into the zeitgeist of youth. The band have had an unprecedented impact on modern British street culture. An incredibly special group, N-Dubz have definitely proven that nothing can hold them back. The success of their two multi-platinum albums and the unprecedented demand for tickets for their live shows proves they will persevere well into the next decade.

Tinchy will be supported on the night by rising star Devlin. A true underground hero, he's amassed a reputation as freestyle master and a king of pirate radio. In between the ricocheting lyrical crossfire one face is emerging as one of 2010's most notorious breaking artists, and that's the angular bone-structure of Dagenham, Essex's very own Devlin. At long last it feels like UK rap music is well and truly erupting. His single ‘Bud, Sweat & Beers’ is out November 1st.
