Never miss another 'Plan B' show
Plan B + Labrinth + Rudimental
Following the release of his new film and accompanying soundtrack 'iLL Manors' earlier this summer, Plan B has confirmed a UK arena tour, heading out on the road in February 2013.
Chart-topper Labrinth has been signed up by Plan B for his forthcoming tour, along with drum 'n' bass quartet Rudimental.
This event takes place at Motorpoint Arena Cardiff, 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.

Since featuring on, and producing, Tinie Tempah's 'Pass Out' and 'Frisky', the singing, songwriting and producing phenomenon Labrinth has rapidly become one of the most significant emerging artists of the past 18 months. Originally from Hackney, east London, Labrinth is the youngest of nine musically gifted siblings. He discovered his talent for music by going to the local studio whilst still at school. Making beats at the age of 13 and playing guitar and keyboards by 15, Labrinth is completely self-taught.

This Hackney-based quartet is made up of musicians Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and Leon (DJ Locksmith), who navigate through genres effortlessly. With a number one chart position already under their belts, with 'Feel The Love', Rudimental have an exciting career ahead of them. They've already managed to collect a whole host of accolades along the way including early backing from Zane Lowe as his Hottest Record in the World and plays from Mista Jam and Annie Mac.
