Declan McKenna announces details of huge Royal Albert Hall show in London

He'll "be joined by a bunch of friends" for the bank holiday gig next year

Declan McKenna has announced details of a huge new London show – he’ll play the Royal Albert Hall next year.

The singer-songwriter released second album ‘Zeros’ last year, and recently finished up a UK headline tour in support of the record. His show at London’s Brixton Academy back in September has since been turned into a live film, which came out last week.

For the new show at the Royal Albert Hall on May 2 next year, McKenna says that the show is “for one night only” and that he’ll “be joined by a bunch of friends” at the gig.


Get all the details below, with pre-sale tickets available here from 9am GMT on Wednesday (November 24).

Straight after the Royal Albert Hall show, McKenna will head out on a rescheduled run of UK tour dates. The artist was forced to postpone a small number of dates on his ‘Zeros’ tour earlier this year after he tested positive for coronavirus.

In terms of future music, McKenna recently confirmed that he will get in the studio with Sam Fender to record a collaboration “at some point”.

The collaboration was originally teased last year but according to McKenna, they’ve both been too busy to make it happen. “We’ve both been doing all sorts of shit,” he told NME backstage at Reading Festival.
