50 Cent, with G-Unit, has announced a UK arena tour this winter with one night in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena in November!  

50 Cent has lined up three new UK shows later this year, and has announced one night in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena on the 4th November.

Having just played a sell out show at the O2 Arena in London, the rapper will return with G-Unit for shows at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro, Manchester Arena and Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on November 4th, 6th and 7th.

The 40-year-old Grammy Award-winner has sold over 30 million albums. His career began in 2002 when fellow rapper Eminem introduced him to Dr Dre, and the pair later produced 50 Cent’s debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’. From that record, hit single ‘In da Club’ became the most listened-to song in radio history within a week of release.

Despite his recent troubles, Jackson has previously demonstrated a canny business acumen. In 2003 he invested in VitaminWater, a deal which later earned him a reported $100 million from its sale to Coca-Cola.

The announcement follows last week’s news that the singer had filed for bankruptcy; a very different process in the US compared the UK and likely to be a pretty strategic business decision.

The hip hop troupe released the six-track EP, ‘The Beast Is G-Unit’, in March. They don’t visit these shores very often, so make sure you get your tickets soon!
