Shakespeare’s Globe is delighted to announce that Ben Drew, better known as Plan B, will take over the Globe Theatre on Monday 24 July for a live music gig. Tickets will go on general sale at 10am this Friday 16 June.
Plan B unveiled his video for new track In the Name of Man last week, and is due to release his long-awaited fourth studio album later this year. His performance marks the latest in a series of unique gigs at the Globe which saw Mercury Prize nominee Róisín Murphy perform
live on stage in 2016. Shakespeare’s Globe will continue to welcome genre-defining artists this summer, with BRIT and Ivor Novello Award winner Plan B and Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Nitin Sawhney both set to appear in the open-air theatre in
July and August respectively.
A maverick figure in the world of music, Ben Drew’s incendiary debut album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words broke new ground for UK hip hop in 2006. His sophomore album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks married soul and hip hop with great success,
selling over 1.4 million copies in the UK. His 2012 directorial debut (and accompanying album) iLLManors boldly addressed socio-political issues with his often brutal cultural commentary, seeing Ben nominated for his fifth BRIT Award, and once again hitting #1 in the UK album chart.
