N-Dubz gig will go ahead

N-Dubz say they still intend to honour tour dates this year – amid rumours the band could be splitting up.

The British hip hop group from London are due to play at the Villa Marina on Thursday, August 18.

But the Sun newspaper is reporting tensions are running high in the band over Tulisa Contostavlos joining the X-Factor as a judge.

It claims fellow band member Dappy is furious over her decision to join the show and has signed up with Tinchy Stryder’s management for a solo career.

However, the paper quotes a band spokesman who says N-Dubz will perform live throughout 2011 and plans are in place for another single and album.
