Shola Ama And Garage Tour Come To Coventry

Shola AmaShola Ama is to lead an array of top musicians to Coventry as the Pure Garage III tour leaves London for the first time.

The SkyDome will play host to the platinum-selling compilation next Tuesday in its first sortie from the capital.

Shola Ama will be leading the musicians that also include Monsta Boy, DJ Milan and One Step Ahead.

The singer who was made famous after being overheard singing on the underground is currently on a high after the success of her second album.

She shot to fame with catchy cover version Need Somebody and stunned the music world by recording massive sales of her debut album shortly afterwards.

SkyDome manager Ian Knight believes that the event will be one of the most popular ever to be held at the complex.

He said:

"Shola Ama is one of the country's most successful female singers and has a massive following throughout the country.

"She has won a glut of awards including MOBOs and a Brit - it is an indication of what a big night this is for SkyDome that in the summer Shola Ama toured France and played to an average crowd of 28,000.

"With that in mind I don't think the 2,400 tickets available for her visit to Ikon and Diva will last too long!"

The event is being promoted by Coventry company Cosmic Entertainments Ltd and partner Stavros Poulos sees it as another feather in the cap of Coventry nightlife.

He said:

"The Pure Garage III tour has not just Shola Ama but a variety of top R&B and Garage names who have produced some of the year’s biggest club hits.

"Monsta Boy who was responsible for 'Sorry', DJ Milan and One Step Ahead are all part of the entertainment and each in their own right can play to big venues.

"The show has not previously been out of London and the fact that the artists feel that SkyDome Coventry should be an exception is great for music fans in the city."

Tickets are priced at £9 plus booking fee and can be purchased from the SkyDome box office.
