Olympia London is branching out into more live music, and its latest is a high-profile show from prominent grime MC Skepta.
Friday 29 November marks the end of SKEPTA’s first headline tour since the release of his fifth studio album ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’. He will play a 10,000 capacity gig at the venue, which is traditionally used for exhibitions.
Released via SKEPTA’s own ‘Boy Better Know’ label, ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ is the follow up to his album ‘Konnichiwa’.
SKEPTA was the main producer on the record, alongside the likes of Ragz Originale, Ayo, IndigoChildRick and Trench, and collaborations with Nafe Smallz, Key, J Hus, Cheb Rabi & B Live, Lancey Foux, Lay Z & Wizkid and BBK.
The record made UK charts at number two and was met with widespread acclaim from critics and fans alike.
The concert is now sold out.
