14:32 18 September 2012
Hip-hop star Tinchy Stryder will support Cheryl Cole on her UK arena tour.
Stryder was 2009’s biggest selling male solo artist in the UK and over the past two years the rapper has scored a string of hit singles including Never Leave You and Number 1, a top-selling album, and has embarked on nationwide sell-out headline tours.
Previously the rapper has supported Akon and Rihanna at their UK shows.
His fourth album Full Tank will hit shelves in December 2012.
Cole has released three albums, and will perform material from them all on her tour, which takes in major cities across the UK, with a stop at The O2 in London on October 7.
The former Girls Aloud singer’s Call My Name shot straight to number one within hours of release on iTunes, clocking up record breaking sales.
This is Cole’s first solo headline tour. She previously opened as special guest on the Black Eyed Peas European tour in 2010 and also played four sold-out arena tours as part of Girls Aloud.
