ONE of the UK’s biggest music stars, Tinchy Stryder, is headlining the Urban Jam at the Ricoh Arena later this year.

The hip hop talent is heading to the Jaguar Hall on Sunday, October 28. He’ll be joined on stage by the legendary hip hop rapper Chipmunk along with Fazer, Dot Rotten, Angel, Radio 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth, Benny Banks, Lady Leshurr, Kliq and Dan W.

Liz Cooper, marketing director at the Ricoh Arena, said promoters Perpetual Events had put together an exciting line-up.

“This is a night not to be missed for fans of this genre of music,” she said.

“We are delighted to be bringing such a fantastic number of acts in one night to the Ricoh Arena. Tinchy has been shining brightly in the music world ever since he was the biggest selling male artist in 2009 due to his aptly-named single track Number 1 and album Catch 22. He has played gigs at large stadiums and festivals across the UK and this is certain to be a special night in the Jaguar Hall.”

Tickets went on sale last week priced at £23.50. Tickets are available from
