Watch Nadine Shah deliver a “stunning” set in London at BBC6 Music Festival

Nadine headlined the first night of the festival in London

Nadine Shah has delivered what fans are describing as a “stunning” show in London last night, for the first night of the BBC6 Music Festival.

Earlier this week, Shah was announced as a stand in for Michael Kiwanuka after he was forced to cancel all his upcoming tour dates following a diagnosis of acute viral laryngitis.

The acclaimed singer was set to play dates in London, Manchester, Cambridge, Leicester, Leeds, Glasgow, Newcastle and a leading slot at BBC 6 Music Festival last night (March 6).


All tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates, which are set to be announced in the coming days.
