Birmingham, Bradford and London are the lucky spots to be gearing up for hosting the 2008 throw down with Bounty Killer and Mavado. Word is demand for tickets in London is through the roof, prompting promoters to be considering a second London date.

The UK invasion comes after a flood of offers for Mavado that followed his successful November appearance there. As for the Killer, "[He] is an icon in the UK and we go there every year with him so the promoter decided to go all out and put on one show," Manager Julian Jones-Griffith explained of the concert dubbed as the biggest dancehall show to hit the UK shores. Jones-Griffith said, "It is going to be history."

Making that history with the firey Alliance crew will be, Baby Cham and Spice, who have been added to the line-up. Rising Alliance stars Einstein and Future Fambo will also join the tour.

From the UK, Bounty Killer continues on an extensive European Tour that takes him to France, Holland, Germany, Belgium and Italy.

Mavado, who is anxiously awaiting the February release of his Little X directed video, "Last Night," will appear throughout the Caribbean after the UK tour.
