Tyga tickets are on sale now!!
Multi-platinum selling Los Angeles based hip-hop star Tyga is today pleased to announce four UK tour dates for late spring 2013 taking in venues at London, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester.
The announcement follows the recent release of the star’s second album Hotel California, a searing slab of 15 tracks of potent Cali hip-hop that nods towards the glory days of Dr.Dre and Snoop Dogg’s rule of the West Coast. His 2012 debut album Careless World: Rise Of The Kind debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 selling 61,000 copies in it’s first week and Tyga went on to completely sell out every date on his last UK tour and eventually land the #1 position on the US Billboard Hip-Hop and Rap charts, as well as busting his way onto the UK album chart.
His debut tour supporting Gym Class Heroes (featuring cousin Travie McCoy) in 2008 was the first time this Compton native had visited anywhere outside of Los Angeles, but upon entering the studio to record Hotel California he found himself returning as an international hip-hop star – food for thought and something which provided enough material and inspiration for Tyga to write the complete album in less than a month.
The album features a multitude of collaborations from iconic hip-hop stars including Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and many more, with production coming from an A-list roster which features DJ Mustard [2 Chainz. Meek Mill], Cool & Dre, Jess Jackson [Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj], David D.A. Doman [Kids in the Hall, Ghostface Killah], The Olympicks [Birdman, Lil Wayne] and more, each bringing their own unique take and energy to every track on the record.
Not just content with a glittering hip-hop career Tyga has also turned his hand to fashion and, with his own line of high-street wear entitled Last Kings, plus a collaboration with Reebok on his own line of T-Raww Sneakers that sold out almost immediately on release, there are no signs that this King is ready to stop ruling any time soon – expect tickets for these dates to fly off the shelves at a similar rate.
