Tinie Tempah makes return to North East with Hartlepool gig

Tinie Tempah is set to return to the North East this summer to perform in Hartlepool.

The internationally renowned star, made famous by his hits such as Pass Out, Girls Like and Wonderman, will appear at the gig at Hartlepool Marina on Sunday July 30.

The announcement of the performance comes at the same time his third studio album, Youth, is set to be released.

The gig has been organised by Phresh Creative Management, led by local entrepreneur Junior Masandi, who is confident that the event will be a success.

“I am totally excited, it’s the third time I’ve worked with Tinie and each time the show has been amazing, he’s fantastic live,” Junior said.

Compared to the success of his previous North East shows, this performance is set to be even bigger, with the venue having a 10,000 person capacity.

Capital’s Monster Mash-Up with Vodafone took place at London’s Eventim Apollo tonight (Friday 28th October). The Halloween gig featured sets from some of the world’s hottest artists, DJs and producers including Clean Bandit and Louisa Johnson, Blonde, Zara Larsson, Sigala and Tinie Tempah, with DJ sets from Capital’s Marvin Humes, Coco Cole and Vodafone Future Breaker Culture Code. Capital’s Monster Mash-Up with Vodafone continues on Sunday 30th October at the Manchester Academy.

“He hasn’t played the North East for a little while so it will be a lot more popular. The current ticket sales states it is popular too,” Junior said.

Junior also hopes that having such a famous star in the local area will benefit the locals and the economy.

“Tinie is internationally recognised so I am hoping his presence brings people into Hartlepool. It would be great for the economy.”

Tinie Tempah will be supported by an array of local acts, including Billingham artist Ty Lewis, Gateshead singer Geoff Mull, Liv ‘n’ G, the sister duo from Hartlepool.

Singer Ty Lewis is looking forward to performing alongside headliner Tinie Tempah.

“It’s such an honour to be on the same line-up as such a huge artist,” he said.

“I’ll definitely be feeling the nerves, but I’ve never performed to such a big crown before so I’m excited to just get out there and hopefully entertain them.”
