Rizzle Kicks to play free Olympic gig in Hove

Posted On 02 May 2012 at 3:13 am

Brighton hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks are to play a free concert in Hove when the Olympic torch comes to town.

Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule, both 20, will perform at the County Ground in Hove on Monday 16 July.

A formal announcement is expected within days and ticket details should be finalised within a few weeks.

It was originally intended to hold the concert on Hove Lawns but concerns about crowd control and safety issues persuaded the organisers to switch the venue.

The night before their concert in Hove, the pair will be the headline act at a similar concert in Portsmouth when the torch reaches there.

And the night after their gig in Hove the pair will be playing another free gig at The Stade in Hastings – the next stop on the Olympic torch relay route.

They are also playing at the concert to mark the finale of the torch relay on Thursday 26 July, joining The Wanted on a bill of ten acts headlined by Dizzee Rascal. The Games opening ceremony takes place the day after.

Rizzle Kicks are expected to appear at other venues during the 70-day torch relay with details due to be made public in the coming days.

Later in the year they are booked to perform two homecoming gigs just before Christmas at the Brighton Centre.

The duo, whose hits include Down with the Trumpets and Mama do the Hump, are scheduled to appear at the Centre on Thursday 6 December and Friday 7 December.
