PLAN B TO OPEN SUMMER’S HOTTEST PARTY SEASON
|MASSIVE TALENT AND MASSIVE EXPANSION FOR THE
IBIZA ROCKS BRAND WITH
17 WEEKLY GIGS IN IBIZA AND MALLORCA
Ibiza Rocks is proud to announce that 3 x BRIT Award nominee Plan B will be the first of the A list of artists to perform at Ibiza Rocks and Mallorca Rocks this summer. Plan B will kick off Europe’s hottest summer long series of stunning live gigs under the stars, at the opening parties of Mallorca Rocks (Tues 31 May) and Ibiza Rocks (Weds 01 June).
Due to the overwhelming success of Ibiza Rocks, which launched in 2005, the pioneers of Ibiza’s live music scene expanded with the opening of the Mallorca Rocks Hotel last summer. Having kicked off with five smash hit headline gigs from The Kooks, Calvin Harris, The Courteeners, Dizzee Rascal and Pendulum, Mallorca Rocks quickly soared to success and due to phenomenal public demand, Mallorca’s No. 1 youth hotel and gig destination will mirror Ibiza Rocks with seventeen weekly gigs in 2011.
The bands will tear it up on Tuesday’s at Mallorca Rocks before bounding across the Balearics to the ground-breaking Ibiza Rocks Hotel in San Antonio for another umissable gig at Ibiza Rocks, which is making the very most of midweek with an all new Wednesday slot. That’s seventeen weekly gigs in Mallorca AND Ibiza. It’s official; the Ibiza Rocks Brand is taking over the Balearics.
With the release of his multi-platinum selling second album ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’, Plan B proved he is the ultimate package; a fully-fledged music star totally in touch with a new generation of live music lovers. The multi-talented star from east London has displayed his rap core roots, shown his soulful side and consistently delivered electrifying live performances across the UK. Next month Plan B will wow the crowds at The BRIT Awards before embarking on his first headline arena tour (March 2011) which includes a date at London’s O2 Arena.
Having secured 3 BRIT Award nominations for British Album, British Single and British Male Solo Artist, Plan B is firmly on the A list. With his stunning live set spanning a mix of genres, the dapper lyrical genius will hit the Balearics with a back to back musical feast fit for kings on Tuesday 31 May (Mallorca Rocks Hotel) and Wednesday 01 June (Ibiza Rocks Hotel).
Plan B said: “This is going to be fun. I’ve never been to Ibiza before. I better start working out what I’m going to wear now, it’s going to be hard to make speedo’s work with my suit jacket.”
