Superstar rapper Professor Green will be one of the Keepmoat’s “biggest acts” to perform since it opened, a stadium official said.
The Read All About It star will certainly pack a punch when he performs at the UCFC Legends of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event at the stadium next month.
The showpiece event will see cagefighters Ian Freeman and Ken Shamrock take to the canvas in a unique show held in the borough.
Green, who has had several hit singles with singers including British contingent Emeli Sande and Lily Allen, is also a “big coup” for the town, said Keepmoat’s marketing manager Shaun Lockwood.
“Professor Green is the biggest act since the Keepmoat opened and Elton John performed,” he said.
“We’re really pleased to have the MMA event in Doncaster and for such a big artist to be a part of it.
“It will be a big show and is a big coup for the town.
“The Keepmoat has staged Jamie McDonnell’s world title fight, an England u19s match and the FA Women’s Cup so it’s important we continue to hold popular events like these in the town.”
