Pop group N-Dubz have announced their first UK stadium tour since disbanding in 2011. The band surprised fans on Monday 16th May when they revealed that they were releasing a new single and a UK arena tour kicking off later this year.
Consisting of rappers Dappy (real name Costadinos Contostavlos), his cousin Tulisa Contostavlos, and Fazer (real name Richard Rawson), the group only planned to pause for a couple of years but new music never materialised.
But when will the trio go on tour and when do tickets go on sale? Here is everything you need to know about securing tickets for the Manchester tour date.
When are N-Dubz performing in Manchester?
The Back to the Future tour will kick off on November 7th 2022 in Newcastle and finish in Manchester on November 19th this year at the AO Arena.

How do I get tickets?

The tickets will go on sale at 10am local time and will be available to purchase through AEG Presents and Ticketmaster.
How much are tickets?
Prices for the tickets are unknown as of yet but there may be additional delivery feeds and handling to your purchase when you order.
According to the Ticket Factory website, which is listing the Birmingham tour date, ticket prices are approximately from £41.60. Scottish Event Campus have the tickets listed anywhere around £40 – £50.
What is the seating plan?
Due to the variety of shows, concerts and sports events that take place at the Manchester arena, the seating plan can vary.
For standard shows the arena bowl has fixed tiered seating starting at block 102 and goes round in an anticlockwise direction to block 115.
Capacity can also vary, but normal end-stage (concerts) can boast around 18,000 people (depends on production layout and staging).
Why did N-Dubz split up?
After enjoying success in the late 00s, the three piece band parted ways in 2011 for what was initially believed to be a short break and for the group to embark on their own solo projects.
However, Tulisa later revealed in 2012 the band had split up permanently. Tulisa wrote on her Twitter that Dappy had left the band to pursue a solo career and had not been in touch with her since changing numbers.
