Now it's time for Plan B
RAPPER and singer-songwriter Plan B will pitch up at Plymouth Pavilions on February 12 next year.
Ben Drew is the second high-profile signing in the space of a week, following the booking of girl band Little Mix.
The announcement further reinforces the 4,000-capacity venue's reputation for pulling in acts that usually play much larger stadiums.
Plan B previously played the Pavilions in spring 2011. Since then his popularity has grown with the release of his first feature film, the critically acclaimed Ill Manors.

His soundtrack from the movie provided his second number one album after 2010's The Defamation of Strickland Banks and was this week shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize (see Page 4). He's back on screens today in crime thriller The Sweeney (see review on Page 11).
Pavilions spokesman Robert Maltby said Plan B was a "massive signing".
"For me his March 2011 gig was the best of the whole year," he said.
"With such a diverse range of music, from rap to soul and even a Sixties set, Plan B puts on an amazing live show."
