RAYE has announced her first ever headline show at The O2 arena in London for March 2024.

London The O2, 15 March

Tickets on sale Tuesday (30 January) at 10am from Ticketmaster AXS

The announcement follows hot on the heels of being nominated for a record breaking seven BRIT Awards, making RAYE the most nominated artist in a single year in BRIT Award history.

The one-off London show is set to be a momentous event and a larger take on the singer-songwriter’s My 21st Century Symphony Live show at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, which featured a live orchestra and gospel choir, and was televised on BBC One.

RAYE commented, “This is my first headline performance at The O2 arena. We will have 90 guests on stage, including the Heritage Orchestra and Flames Collective, our guests from The Royal Albert Hall, to perform My 21st Century Symphony. We scarily will have one month to attempt to sell 18,000 tickets, but no matter how many tickets we sell or don’t sell, I’m going to give the best show I can possibly give. I am counting down the days for this moment.”

A No.2 album in the UK, ‘My 21st Century Blues’ was a decade in the making and RAYE‘s debut album as an independent artist. The full-length was nominated for ‘Best Independent Album’ at the AIM Independent Music Awards and was one of only 12 albums selected as a finalist for the 2023 ‘Mercury Music Prize’.

Last year RAYE claimed her first-ever Official UK No.1 single with ‘Escapism’ ft. 070 Shake. The global smash hit is 2x platinum in the UK as well as certified RIAA Platinum in the US and nine other territories with 1.05 billion cumulative streams clocked to date and 105 million views on the video.

Additionally, the track won ‘Best Social Trended Song’ at The Global Awards, ‘Best Contemporary Song’ at the Ivor Novello Awards and ‘Best Independent Track’ at the AIM Independent Music Awards. The song also topped the viral music chart on TikTok boasting 110 billion views and was the No.1 Most Shazamed Pop Song in the U.S. for eight consecutive weeks.

Fast cementing a legacy as an artist that can move seamlessly between genres, RAYE continues to own the pop game.
