The UK rapping sensation Tinie Tempah has made plans to play one of the smallest ever gigs after teaming up with the mobile phone network o2.
The rapper who is currently on the of hottest acts within the UK and who also holds two Brit awards will give one fan the experience of their lifetime when he does a one off gig just for them.
The ‘superfan’ who will receive this once in a lifetime experience is Katie Hobbs aged 21 from Southampton. She received this surprise when the O2 Islington Academy was radically transformed by the phone provider into a packed concert venue where the gig for one in the first ever flash exit was held.
Katie Hobbs received this opportunity after she was selected as the star of the show from 2000 people who had applied on Facebook. This event was billed as being a live video performance; it began as being a gig for just 400 people but within a few seconds it transformed into one of the most exclusive UK gigs ever presented.
Tinie Tempah delivered numerous of his number one hits to the crowd that totally loved the experience. The gig was produced by the well-known Phil Griffin and the 400 in attendance have expressed their delight at the show which was put on. Having performed numerous number one tracks Tinie then performed several songs to Katie on the stage in a one to one performance.
This gig is being regarded as something known as a ‘flash exit’, this is in essence the reverse of a flash mob, they are designed to rapidly enter a busy public space and empty it, and consequently change it into something else radical. This flash exit was created in a marketing stunt by o2 in order demonstrate the lengths they go to when thinking about their customers.
The winner of this gig has said that it was one of the most amazing days of her life and personally thanked Tinie Tempah and the production company o2. She stated that this was a once in a lifetime experience that she would never forget.
Tinie Tempah has stated that his success has been down to the great support he receives from the British public and that he will continue to respect and honour the support that he receives.
