Stormzy’s in town: Huge queues on Cardiff Queen Street
He’s signing albums in HMV tonight
Much-loved artist Stormzy is in Cardiff tonight, signing copies of his new album 'Heavy is the Head'.
And with his arrival, crowds of people have flocked to Queen Street to grab a copy of their signed albums and to get a glimpse of the man himself.
He announced his album signings on Twitter earlier this month. Alongside Cardiff, Stormzy also announced his appearances at Bristol and Birmingham.

But with so much attention and fans coming out, it is unsurprising that Stormzy's albums sold out in a flash.
Just turned up to queue in cardiff for the @stormzy album signing to be told they are only accepting 250 people and that they sold out in an hour. If I'd have known i would have been here by 9am!??
