ONE of the hottest stars of the current UK music scene is set to descend on Doncaster for one of the most eagerly anticipated concerts of this year.

For rapper turned soul sensation Plan B has unveiled a date at The Dome as part of a mini spring tour of Britain.

Currently riding high in the charts with his breakout album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks, Plan B will come to town on March 5 - and tickets for the show are on sale now.

The London-based singer and actor first made his debut on the music scene in 2006 with the album Who Needs Actions When You Got Words.

But his latest album, a concept album of blue-eyed soul ballads fused with dance beats and rap, has helped make him one of the hottest stars of 2010.

Singles from the album, She Said and Stay Too Long have both hit the top ten while the album itself has also spent several weeks nestling in the upper reaches of the top ten after hitting the number one spot in the first week of release.

Plan B, real name Ben Drew, has also had a successful career on the silver screen too, with supporting roles in Adulthood and Harry Brown.

Plan B first mentioned his second album - the Strickland Banks concept - in an interview with NME in 2006.

He explained “I’ve started this project about a drug addict called David Frost - no relation to the guy on TV - and basically it’s the story of this guy and the levels of addiction, rehab, rehab not working, robbing. The trials and tribulations of a smackhead.” Tickets are priced at 17.50 and are available on www.gigsandtours.com or 0844 811 0051.
