Travie McCoy announces UK dates

Travie McCoy will be heading to the UK for some October dates.

The Gym Class Heroes frontman - known for being Katy Perry's ex-boyfriend - will kick off his debut solo tour on October 18 at Birmingham's O2 Academy 2, before performing dates at Oxford's O2 Academy, Manchester Academy, Glasgow G2 and London's Kings College.

The New York-born singer's single, Billionaire, recently stormed the UK singles charts at No 3, and his second single, We'll Be Alright, will be released on October 18.

Travie and Gym Class Heroes are writing music for a new album, which is due out next year.

The 29-year-old recently revealed he wants to work with British rapper Professor Green.

He told the Daily Star: "It would be great to join forces on a track one day. He's a really talented kid. I've known him for a few years now. He supported Gym Class Heroes on tour and we clicked."

Tickets for Travie's solo gigs are on sale now.
