Lethal Bizzle is Snoop support; SNOOP DOGG, LETHAL BIZZLE, CENTRE SQUARE,U ARE,U MIDDLESBROUGH.

UK grime pioneer Lethal Bizzle has been confirmed as support for the massive Snoop Dogg gig on Teesside next month.

The Walthamstow-born rapper will join Snoop in Middlesbrough's Centre Square on Monday June 9, say event organisers Loose Cannon.

Bizzle has played the Boro before with an appearance at The Empire, Middlesbrough six years ago. Dubbed one of the most prolific and exciting rappers to emerge from the UK underground scene in recent years, he's notched up hits with singles including Pow (Forward) which reached number one in the UK Dance Chart.

Tickets for Snoop Dogg's performance are selling fast, says Loose Cannon who expect the event to be a sell out.

They have also confirmed timings for the event - hip hop star Snoop is expected to take to the stage around 9pm with support acts at 7.40pm and 8.20pm. They also plan to offer local acts the opportunity to perform before the expected audience of 5,000 people.

Headliner Snoop's appearance in Middlesbrough is one of just a handful of UK dates and follows a gig at Manchester's massive Parklife Weekender and Brixton's O2 Academy.

He'll then head off for a string of summer festival dates around Europe.

Months of work have gone into pulling off the Middlesbrough date by Loose Cannon - the team behind last year's hugely successful Olly Murs gig in Centre Square. The gig announcement was another hip hop coup for Teesside - coming shortly after it was revealed American stars Public Enemy will headline outdoor music festival Stock-k ton Weekender in July.
