Skepta announces Alexandra Palace headline show with 'very special guests'


Posters have sprung up around the capital over the last few weeks with Skepta's Konnichiwa album cover and a date, August 12.

Skepta has now revealed that tickets go on sale that morning for a headline show at Alexandra Palace on December 2.

Alexandra Palace has a capacity of 10,500 and the Tottenham native has promised some "very special guests" in what's being described as his "biggest headline show to date".

Given that this is Skepta "special guests" could mean literally anyone - everyone is on his music right now. Some fans will be hoping it means Drake will make an appearance at Ally Pally while other acts we could feasibly see include Section Boyz, Novelist, Giggs and of course the rest of BBK. Whoever it is it will be a shutdown.

By then Skepta could even be the holder of the Mercury Prize, announced on September 15 and which you can vote for here.

Tickets for the show will be on sale here at 9am on Friday August 12.
