P Diddy performs first UK gig for five years

P Diddy performed in Glasgow's The Old Fruitmarket venue last night (September 29) in front of a 1,500-strong audience.

The 40-year old spent time meeting fans around Glasgow before the gig, which was a free event organised between MTV, Glasgow Marketing Bureau (GCMB) and EventScotland.

The 'MTV Crash Glasgow' night saw P Diddy perform tracks from his upcoming album, 'Last Train To Paris', with his new group Diddy-Dirty Money, which includes bandmembers Dawn Richard and Kalenna.

The latter passed notes to journalists stating: "Dawn and I aren't background singers simply standing next to Diddy .... Diddy-Dirty Money isn't just more of the same. It's an organic group that grew out of a shared passion for music".

The Scottish unofficial national anthem, 'Flower of Scotland', was played after the band took to the stage, and P Diddy encourage the audience to sing along.

Skepta and Jodie Connor were the support acts.

A 'behind-the-scenes' programme about the event is scheduled to be aired on MTV this Saturday (October 2) at midday BST.
