PJ Harvey has announced plans to play a one-off show at London's Royal Albert Hall on October 30.

The show will mark her very first appearance at the historic venue and will see her playing alongside her live band of Mick Harvey, John Parish and Jean-Marc Butty. The performance will mostly be made up of material from her most recent album 'Let England Shake', which is currently the favourite to win this year's Mercury Music Prize.

PJ Harvey recently spoke to NME and called most modern music "largely unoriginal". She added:

Everybody is different in that way. I'm not saying there isn't great work existing now - for many people there is - but for my own personal taste there's nothing that really grabs me and makes me want to go out and do more investigation into this music.


She went on to say:

I feel much more inspired by other avenues of artwork these days, personally. I find theatre very inspiring. I might get great inspiration from going to exhibitions, but very rarely do I feel stimulated by a piece of music from contemporary artists.



Tickets for the October 30 Royal Albert Hall show go on sale on August 12.
