Lady Leshurr joins Clement Marfo on the Mobo Unsung tour 2012, which sees the Birmingham MC and London urban-punk collective gig in eight major cities across the UK for FREE!
Also during the tour is the MOBO Unsung competition AND attend seminars around the country also for FREE!
MOBO, Urban Development and PRS for Music Foundation are bringing a free tour to eight cities across the UK, offering audiences the opportunity to see some of 2012’s freshest, new, emerging talent on stage and attend industry workshops and seminars (via Industry Takeover @ MOBO Academy). It’s also a chance for undiscovered talent right across the country to get involved in the MOBO Unsung competition. Thanks to funding from Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation all of this will be provided for FREE.
Kicking off on February 22 in Birmingham, the tour will travel across the country and bring together the best of the UK’s new Urban talent. The first names to be announced are breakthrough MC Lady Leshurr and Clement Marfo & The Frontline - a further five names will be confirmed in the New Year.
In addition to bringing the pick of 2012’s most hotly tipped talent to a city near you, The MOBO Tour is also creating the opportunity for brand new, undiscovered talent to win the chance to perform on stage through MOBO Unsung. This nationwide competition is open to enter NOW and all would-be performers need to do to get started is upload a video of themselves performing to YouTube and email the link, embed code and details of which region they live in, to MoboUnsung.
Entries will be hosted on MoboTour for the public to view and a judging panel of industry experts will then select a winner from each UK region, who will take the stage as part of the tour in their local area.
