MTV Crashes... Glasgow, an exclusive free concert, took place in the atmospheric setting of The Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow’s hip Merchant City and will be filmed as an MTV Worldstage, which will later broadcast via MTV channels in 161 countries and over 640 million households as part of MTV’s global Friday night live music programming.
In Diddy’s first UK concert in over 5 years, fans had the first opportunity to watch Diddy-Dirty Money perform tracks from the yet to be released album “Last Train To Paris” as well as the hit single “Hello Good Morning”, plus classic Diddy tracks.
Working in close partnership, MTV, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau and EventScotland have developed a 2010 exclusive, bespoke night of music; hosted by the world’s number one youth brand, bringing one of the world’s top artists to Scotland and reinforcing Glasgow’s style credentials to a global audience.
Diddy Dirty Money was supported by Sketpa and Jodie Connor. Handpicked by Diddy as one of the support acts for this exclusive concert, Skepta, created a twitter storm after producing the grime remix of Diddy-Dirty Money’s single ‘Hello Good Morning’.
