TO coincide with the release of his new album, Kiwanuka, Michael Kiwanuka has announced his biggest headline show to date at London’s Alexandra Palace on November 27, 2020.

Tickets hit pre-sale from 9am on Wednesday, November 6 and on general sale from 9am on Friday, November 8. Fans who purchase the new album via Michael’s official webstore will receive access to the pre-sale window to purchase tickets.

As previously announced, Michael will tour Kiwanuka across the UK in March.

Kiwanuka is the follow-up to Michael’s number 1 second album, Love & Hate, released back in July 2016 that resonated broadly both critically and in the public’s affections, netting the British musician his second Mercury Prize nomination and his second and third BRIT nominations too.

Recorded in New York, LA and London, Michael returned to the studio with Danger Mouse and Inflo, the same production team that combined so magnificently on Love & Hate, Kiwanuka finds a new assuredness in Michael’s writing, and takes the basic sonic blueprint of that last record to a dizzying new realm.
