It seems the firsts keep on coming for Afrobeat superstar, Burna Boy as he’s penciled in to make his first headline appearance at the O2 arena, London.
The famous London arena is set to host a series of full capacity “Welcome Back shows” in August. Burna Boy is to be one of the headline acts.
A statement from the O2 via Twitter read,
“As part of our Welcome Back Shows, @burnaboy is heading to London playing his first headline show at The O2 on 27 August 2021.”
“The Welcome Back Shows mark a really exciting moment for The O2 and for our fans, as we get ready to welcome full capacity crowds back to the venue after such a long period,” said Emma Bownes, VP of Programming for AEG Europe, the owner, and operator of The O2.
We’re planning a stunning string of events that will bring the best in comedy, dance, afrobeat, rock and pop to London and give fans what they’ve been waiting for.

“I’m thankful for the love and support, we go again,” Burna said in a brief statement about the gig.
The Grammy-winning artist will also perform at Primavera Sound Festival 2022.
The O2 recently hosted the BRIT Awards with a reduced attendance of just 4,000. This was also part of the UK government’s Events Research Programme, aimed at supporting the return of live events.
