Jamie xx to play huge London gig in February

Mercury nominated artist will also perform in Paris in February 2016

Jamie xx will headline a huge London gig in February next year.

The producer, and one third of The xx, will headline London’s 12,000 capacity Alexandra Palace on February 26. His last UK tour saw him play to a sold-out O2 Academy Brixton with the 2016 gigs representing his largest solo headline show to date.

Jamie xx will also perform at Le ZĂ©nith in Paris on February 24. He will be joined by Four Tet and Bambounou for the Paris event, with the full London line-up to be announced soon.

Jamie xx released his debut solo record ‘In Colour’ earlier this year. The album includes collaborations with artists including Young Thug and Popcaan as well as his XX bandmates Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim. The album charted at Number Three in the Official UK Albums Chart.

‘In Colour’ was nominated for this year’s Mercury Prize, but lost out to eventual winner Benjamin Clementine.
