LATEST NEWS: BBCC expand new tour due to huge demand

BAD BOY Chiller Crew (BBCC) are "set for stardom" in the next year after announcing a brand new tour and being shortlisted for a national award.

The threesome from Bradford have just finished up on their Autumn tour and haven't waited about before setting plans in place for their next run of shows.

On the back of revealing the upcoming release of their new album, "Disrespectful" (being dispatched from January 21), BBCC announced a tour across the UK and Ireland last Friday.

The tour, which has the same name as the new album, is already on pre-sale to O2 customers and people who had pre-ordered the mischievous group's new album by 3pm this Tuesday.

Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on Friday morning.

The tour currently includes 15 dates in different locations, but mysteriously Bradford is nowhere to be seen, despite Leeds being on the list.

It begins in our neighbouring city, at the O2 Academy Leeds, on April 12 next year, followed by Venue Cymru - The Arena, in Llandudno, north Wales on April 16, then Grimsby Auditorium on April 18.

"Disrespectful" heads further north on April 20 to the O2 City Hall in Newcastle, before stopping at O2 Academy Bournemouth on April 23 and a trip to O2 Academy Birmingham on April 24.

The tour then makes its way to the following locations: O2 Academy Bristol (April 25), O2 Academy Sheffield (April 26), O2 Forum Kentish Town in London (April 28), Cardiff University Students Union (April 29), O2 Academy Edinburgh (May 2), O2 Academy Glasgow (May 3), Manchester Academy (May 5), The Limelight in Belfast (May 13) and The Academy in Dublin (May 15).

The Bradford boys have once again proved they're no divvies too, after being shortlisted for an MTV award on Tuesday.

BBCC have made it onto the MTV Push Uk & Ire 2022 shortlist, which contains ten acts the entertainment company believes are "set for stardom over the next 12 month".

Last year's winner was Nathan Dawe, who released hits with the likes of Little Mix, Anne-Marie and MoStack, while also appearing at Reading Festival.

BBCC also revealed their "Spotify Wrapped" artist statistics for 2021 earlier this afternoon, which sums up how an artist, band, or act have performed on the streaming service in that year.

The trio had 73.5 million streams in total, with people spending 3.5 million hours listening to BBCC.

They were streamed in 171 countries, with 5.7 million listeners in total.

The boys shared a picture of their stats on the BBCC Twitter page with the following post: "Spotify tells no lies. It's a lifestyle charva."

For context, Dua Lipa - the UK's most overall streamed artist globally in 2021 - gets 66.7 million monthly listeners.
