Professor Green stuck to the old entertainment mantra that 'the show must go on' at Volvo Snowbombing 2011 despite suffering from tonsillitis.

The rapper, who won over a decent sized crowd in the Racket Club, ran through hits like ‘Just Be Good To Green’ with a drum and bass ending and ‘Jungle’ during a late evening set.

“I apologise for the sound of my voice,” he told his audience, “I’ve got tonsillitis but the show must go on.”

He had the help of Example, himself performing this week, during hit ‘Monster’ which would have soothed his throat a little but it was ‘I Need You Tonight’ that got the biggest cheer of the show.

Magnetic Man, Shy FX and Mistajam are set to play Volvo Snowbombing 2011 this evening (Tuesday) as the festival takes over Mayrhofen in Austria from 4-9 April.
