SEVEN time Grammy winner Beck has announced his highly anticipated return to the UK with two summer shows at London O2 Brixton Academy (on July 11) and Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse (July 9).

The shows will mark Beck’s first live shows in the UK since his lauded Second Stage Headline slot at All Points East in May 2017.

The tour announcement comes hot-on-the-heels of his critically acclaimed, sold out 2019 headline tour of the US. The two-hour set promises to mix acoustic ballads with rubbery funk and jerky new wave.

Away from the live arena, Beck remains as creatively restless as ever, a master of re-invention achieving yet another career peak in the studio. As the title of his critically acclaimed new 14th album Hyperspace implies, Beck has travelled light years from his emergence as a reluctant generational spokesperson.

In the decades since, Beck’s singular career has seen him utilize all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and blazing a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past.

Tickets for Beck at O2 Brixton Academy and Manchester O2 Victoria Warehouse go on sale on Friday, February 14 at 10am.
