The Defamation of Strickland Banks Tour was a concert tour by British musician Plan B in support of his second studio album The Defamation of Strickland Banks. Lasting from January 2010–September 2011, the tour visited the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States and Oceania.

Background[edit]

The Defamation of Strickland Banks Tour was Plan B's first solo concert tour since the Who Needs Actions When You Got Words Tour in 2007. Following touring for his debut album, Plan B spent most of his time writing and recording for his second studio album and began a film career with roles in Adulthood (2008) and Harry Brown (2009). Plan B also toured as guest vocalist during Chase & Status' Debut Live Tour in 2009 performing "Pieces" and "End Credits" with the group.[1]

Plan B commenced the tour with a warm up show at Café de Paris, London on 20 January 2010[2] and then embarked on a tour of the United Kingdom in April 2010 and played European festival dates during summer 2010. After the success of The Defamation of Strickland Banks album, which went on to become the UK's fifth best-selling album of the year, the tour was later expanded later into 2010 and 2011 with further legs in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and Oceania.

Officially-released live performances recorded during the tour include "She Said" and "Welcome to Hell" (live from Cafe de Paris) released as bonus tracks on the deluxe edition of The Defamation of Strickland Banks and the iTunes Festival: London 2010 download EP released in July 2010.
