THE Theatre Royal will be bouncing to the rhythm of the Aquablakk Roadshow on Sunday, March 6.
The gig will feature hip hop artists Aquablakk, rapper DJ Ironik, Britain’s Got Talent finalists Nemesis and TV’s Got to Dance contestant Gingerbread Man, among others.
Aquablakk, aka Chesterfield duo Vee and Mulleezy, have been performing together since 2008.
Their debut single How Ya Like It, a blend of R’n’B and hip hop, reached the top spot in the UK independent music charts in February 2010.
So far the dynamic duo have racked up performances supporting British hip hop sensation Chipmunk and US R’n’B star Ne-Yo as well as appearing on national television.
Aquablakk are no strangers to St Helens. Last year, they switched on the town’s Christmas lights along with Britain’s Got Talent finalists Twist & Pulse and R’n’B group Encore and performed to an 8,000-strong crowd.
The duo are now planning their tour across the UK to promote their latest project, Run This, and are set to perform in South Africa during a 15-day tour with South African chart-topping girl group La Vuvuzela later this year.
* Tickets are available at the Theatre Royal’s box office at sthelenstheatreroyal.com/booking.asp or by calling 01744 756000.
