Artful Dodger Weaves Into Coventry

Coventry is getting ready for a visit from the Artful Dodger - but it will be tunes that are being picked and not pockets.

Trevor NelsonThe chart-topping duo, who have pioneered the rise of Garage music in the UK, will appear at Ikon Superclub on Tuesday 6 February along with Trevor Nelson (right).

Starting as undergroud DJs on pirate radio stations, Artful Dodger picked up a loyal following before moving towards mainstream chart music and have pioneered the rise of Garage music in the UK.

Smash hits such as 'Something', 'What Ya Gonna Do', 'Movin' Too Fast' and club anthem 'Re-Rewind' launched them to the top of the music tree.

'The Dodgers' have now notched up ten chart hits and released their debut album, and SkyDome manager Ian Knight believes that Ikon will be entertaining one of the most respected acts in the music world.

He said:

"Artful Dodger have a hugely popular show on Capital Radio and have had a massive influence on modern music.

"They paved the way for stars like Craig David and the reputation they have is highlighted by the fact that he often does guest vocals on their tracks.

"To get them to perform at Ikon is fantastic for us - interest in the event is greater than anything we have had before.

"Visits to the Midlands are rare for them and fans of their music in this area have not had many opportunities to hear them live.

"Having them on the same bill as Trevor Nelson means that even with capacity for over 2,500 people tickets are going to be in very short supply."

Trevor Nelson has scooped MOBO award success and host regular shows on MTV and Radio One.

He will be returning to the SkyDome complex for the second time after hailing the development as a 'huge shot in the arm' for Midlands nightlife.
