East London's rising star Dizzee Rascal brings his UK tour to the UEA, Norwich, this Sunday.

Almost a year has gone by since Dizzee Rascal released his groundbreaking debut album, Boy In Da Corner.

Boy… won the Mercury music award in 2003, and the young Dylan Mills found himself in the eye of a frenzied storm of media excitement. Over the past twelve months, Dizzee has travelled the world, and has been on a roller coaster ride of new experiences. With the dust finally settling, the most famous teenager from Bow has found time to release the follow-up to Boy In Da Corner. Showtime, released in September is a bigger-sounding album than Boy… but it's equally individual. It features the first single, Stand Up Tall and the new single Dream, a remake of Captain Sensible's 1982 chart hit Happy Talk.

Main support on Dizzee Rascal's UK tour is Taz one of the leading lights in the British hip-hop scene. Taz brings his own blend of UK flow and cutting-edge production to the table that has already seen him Novello-nominated for his work with Dizzee Rascal despite his tender years. Taz will be playing songs taken from his acclaimed debut album Analyse This, Cowboy Film.

Doors 7.30pm. Tickets at £12.50 in advance are available in Norwich from UEA Union, Waterfront, Soundclash and HMV. Credit card bookings call 01603 508050 or go to www.ueaticketbookings.co.uk
