About the gig
This summer Plan B took over the Globe Theatre for a one-off gig.
A maverick figure in the world of music, Plan B broke new ground for UK hip hop in 2006 with his incendiary debut album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words. His sophomore album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks married soul and hip hop with great success, selling over 1.4 million copies in the UK. His 2012 directorial debut (and accompanying album) iLLManors boldly addressed socio-political issues with his often brutal cultural commentary, seeing Ben nominated for his fifth BRIT Award, and once again hitting #1 in the UK album chart.
Plan B unveiled his video for new track In the Name of Man earlier in June, and is due to release his long-awaited fourth studio album later this year.
Plan B’s performance marks the latest in a series of unique gigs at the Globe which saw Mercury Prize nominee Róisín Murphy perform live on stage in 2016. We will continue to welcome genre-defining artists this summer, with Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Nitin Sawhney set to perform in August.
