IT was the hottest ticket in town with young chart fans across Dorset desperate to be there.

And Rizzle Kicks' triumphant return to Bournemouth's O2 Academy didn't disappoint the enthusiastic and largely teenage crowd,.

The Boscombe venue was the first place the Brighton-based hip hop duo ever performed to a live audience but last time they were a support act.

Last night they were firmly at the top of the bill and could have filled the place three times over.

And what's not to love?

Witty, energetic, cute - not to mention extremely talented - Rizzle Kicks have burst on to the scene and taken the pop world by storm.

Their debut album, Stereo Typical, was released in October last year and hit singles have included Down With The Trumpets, Prophet (Better Watch It), Traveller's Chant and When I Was A Youngster.

But it was Mama Do The Hump that made the boys a household name, thanks in no small part to a hilarious appearance in their video from James Corden.

And he's not the only one getting in on the act.

Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens and Harley "Sylvester" Alexander-Sule have already worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Olly Murs.

And there are plans for bigger gigs later this year and appearances at several festivals.

The boys, 20, met when they were four-years-old, played football together and eventually went to Brit School together and their close friendship is plain to see during their performances.

They hurtled on to the stage in a blaze of bright lights and stunning music from a top-class band, including, of course, a trumpet.

The crowd went nuts, a good time was had by all and the tickets were only £12.50! I suspect it'll cost a lot more next time we see them.
