Michael Kiwanuka announces major new tour

Tour next spring follows sold-out run next month

Michael Kiwanuka has announced a six-date UK tour for next spring, after each of the dates on his tour next month sold out.

The singer will tour in April and May, ending at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 5 for his biggest headline show to date. Tickets for the new tour go on sale at 10am on Friday (September 30). Tickets will be non-transferable and limited to four per person.
