  Akon is coming to town
(Thursday, 5th July 2007)
Tickets are now on sale for R’n’B superstar’s AKON’s, debut Scottish gig. Akon is bringing his European tour to Braehead Arena on the 25th July 2007 and Urbanscot is thrilled to announce that Urbanscot Raw, Scotland’s only urban showcase event, will support Akon’s tour.

Akon has confirmed his title of superstar following the success of his 2003 Album ‘Trouble’ with hits like ‘Lonely’ and ‘Locked up’. His star has continued to rise with the success of ‘Konvicted’ throwing up hits, ‘Smack that’ and ‘I wanna love you’. Akon’s success seems unstoppable. His collaborations have earned him respect in the Black music community and production skills have earned him accolades such as Gwen Stephani’s ‘Sweetest thing’.

Akon is loyal to his fan base and has often expressed his desire to play in Scotland. That wish is coming true this month, live and direct in Glasgow!

Supported by Scotland’s top performers, Urbanscot Raw promises to deliver a supporting line up that will make you stand up and take note of our home-grown talent. Support from L Marie, Jae P, Simba, Clarita and Steg G & the Freestyle Master + HipHopScotch
