O2 4G Launch Gig: Plan B
O2 hosts a multi-platform launch gig, which will be live-streamed across London on 29th August, to celebrate O2's 4G switch on.
The award-winning rapper Plan B, known for his dark and intelligent rhymes, will perform an exclusive set at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.
This event takes place at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
A truly defiant figure in the world of music, Plan B’s diverse creativity is inexhaustible. His raw, incendiary debut album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words broke new ground for UK hip hop in 2006, a loud, proud, obscenity-riddled scream of anger and pride from the streets of East London.
But a part of Ben always stayed faithful to the soul he’d first heard as a child, and his sophomore album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks saw him marry the two together with astounding success, achieving quadruple-platinum status, hitting the #1 album spot and selling over 1.4 million copies in the UK alone, plus seeing him win both a BRIT and three Ivor Novello’s.
His 2012 directorial debut (and accompanying album) iLL Manors saw him smashing boundaries with his creative style of overlapping stories and interweaving rap-narrative, boldly addressing socio-political issues with his often brutal cultural commentary, seeing Ben nominated for his fifth BRIT Award, being nominated for his first Mercury Music prize, and once again hitting #1 in the UK album chart.
