RAPPER Professor Green has postponed his Glasgow gig as he puts his UK tour on hold for personal reasons.

The singer songwriter today announced that the 12-date headline tour - due to take place in May - will be put off until November this year because he has had a "turbulent" 18 months.

He was due to play in Glasgow's O2 ABC on Friday May but this has been rescheduled for Friday November 28.

Original tickets remain valid.

In an open letter to his fans, which is the star signs "Greeners", he says: "The last 18 months have been mental, turbulent, up and down, round and round, amazing, horrible, happy, sad, frustrating, testing, trying and above all incredibly stressful.

"I wanted an album out last October but as most of you are aware a lot has happened in my wonderfully colourful day to day life.

"I got hit by a car, got married and then had my life turned upside down.

"Fear not, I've finally finished my album and the work has not suffered for it, if anything the time I've had between all the chaos has made for a much better album."

Speaking about his new album, Growing Up in Public, Professor Green added: "I can't wait to get this album out for you all to hear and to get back on stage."

"I'm touring the new album in November, which will give you a fair few months to live with the album and know it inside out."

The star has also released a teaser of the first track on his new album called I'm Not Your Man featuring Thabo.
