The up and coming hip-hop artist, Chipmunk, has announced that he will be playing Lincoln’s Engine Shed as part of his summer 2010 tour.

The 19 year old rapper will play to the Lincoln crowd on July 14th and tickets are expected to sell fast.

He has experienced immense success since he released his first album, “I am Chipmunk” in October 2009. The album went straight to number one in the UK R&B charts and number two in the UK singles chart.

Not a stranger to award shows, Chipmunk has an Urban Music Award for best newcomer and an American BET Awards nomination for Best Rapper under his belt.

Most famously though, he has received MOBOs for Best Newcomer in 2008, and for Best Hip-Hop Act in 2009 – all this and he’s still in his teens.

More recently he’s been teaming up with other hip-hop successes such as working and touring with N-Dubz and having his MC talents featured on DJ Ironik’s hit single “Tiny Dancer”.

Tickets for the show are £14.50 and go on sale tomorrow, Friday March 12th at 9am. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the Engine Shed’s website or call the ticket hotline on 0844 888 8766. Doors will open at 7pm and the show is strictly for 16 years and above. ID will be required.
