AMERICAN rapper Coolio will be hitting the stage of a Vale/Worcestershire nightclub this weekend.

The award-winning musician, famous for his 90s hit Gangsta’s Paradise, will be playing in Evesham nightclub Marilyn’s on Saturday (March 16).

The Vale night spot will be the only Midlands venue that Coolio will be performing at during his European tour.

Coolio, whose chart topping hit is one of the best selling singles of all time, hit UK screens again when he entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2009, where he finished in third place.

30-year anniversary this year. This is a great way to kick off the anniversary, and we’ve got more exciting events up our sleeves for 2013.

“We’ve had a high calibre of acts in the past and we snapped up Coolio as soon as the opportunity arose.”

Tickets will be available on the door, which open at 10pm.
