N-Dubz Against All Odds Tour Coming to Plymouth

London hip-hop group N-Dubz are to play Plymouth Pavilions next year.
The group, who have won three MOBOs, will play Plymouth Pavilions on April 14, 2010 as part of the Against All Odds tour.
N-Dubz, from Camden, have had three top 40 hits in the UK singles chart and a platinum-selling album.
The group's second album, also titled Against All Odds, went into the UK charts at number six last week.
Comprised of Dino 'Dappy' Contostavlos, Tula 'Tulisa' Contostavlos, and Richard 'Fazer' Rawson, N-Dubz originally met as schoolmates and began their recording career as the Lickle Rinsers Crew.
After changing their name to N-Dubz, the group began to experience modest chart success in 2006. But it wasn't until 2008 that the group hit the big time,, with hits such as Ouch, Papa Can You Hear Me and I Need You as well as collaborations with Tinchy Stryder, Pixie Lott, Chipmunk, Mr Hudson and Wiley.
N-Dubz's first tour sold out within days and five extra dates had to be added. Plymouth is one of just 16 dates across the UK.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday, December 4 from 0845 146 1460 and
Plymouth Pavilions is just a five minute walk from The Avalon Guest House Plymouth Bed and Breakfast.

Jimmy Carr to bring Rapier Wit tour to Plymouth Pavilions

Following two hilarious shows last summer, Jimmy Carr is set to bring his new show, Rapier Wit, to Plymouth Pavilions next year.
A heady mix of artistic integrity, loyalty and avarice has put Jimmy back on the road. If you only see one comedy show this year… What’s the matter with you? Get out more!
The Rapier Wit tour will feature 120 minutes of fresh, uncensored material, completely updated from that seen in any of his previous performances and DVD releases.
A ‘rapier’ is the long sword of a gentleman. ‘Rapier wit’ is defined as clever, quick, intelligent humour.
Please note, Jimmy Carr doesn’t have ‘the long sword of a gentleman’ and even if you like him, ‘clever, quick and intelligent’ is a bit of a stretch.
He has, however, deservedly earned his place among the premiere league of British comics.
His stand-up achievements to date include a British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand Up Tour, a Loaded LAFTA Award for Best Stand Up, a Perrier Award nomination, Best Stand Up at the Time Out Awards and Best on Screen Newcomer from the Royal Television Society.
Jimmy hits Plymouth Pavilions on July 30, 2010. Tickets cost £22.50 and go on sale at 10am on November 19, 2009 from 0845 146 1460 and
Our Plymouth Bed and Breakfast is just a five minute walk from Plymouth Pavillions

Thursday, November 5.
6.00pm start
Bonfire Night fun for all the family on Plymouth Hoe
The sky will be lit up over Plymouth Hoe on November 5 with colourful explosions and bright lights for Bonfire Night.
The event will start on the Hoe at 6pm with live entertainment from Heart FM who will be entertaining the crowd from their show stage on the Hoe promenade.
A huge traditional bonfire will be lit at 7.30pm with fireworks being launched from the Citadel Ramparts at 8pm.
This year a dramatic soundtrack of music will accompany the spectacular firework display. Smeaton's Tower, The Citadel and the War Memorial will also be 'colourwashed' with coloured floodlighting to complement the glow of the traditional bonfire.
There will also be fairground rides and refreshments available from food stalls throughout the evening.
Parking will be available on the Hoe Promenade for Blue Badge holders on a first come, first served basis. Access will be via Elliot Street.
There will be no parking on Hoe Road alongside Plymouth Citadel. The Barbican car park will close at 11.45pm but the Sutton Harbour Plymouth locking gate will close at 9.30pm.
As part of its crackdown on illegal bonfires, Plymouth City Council is encouraging Plymouth residents to enjoy the celebrations on the Hoe or attend a properly organised event, rather than build their own bonfires.
