Fresh from his Grammy win for Best International Artist, Burna Boy is the third artist to be announced for The O2 Welcome Back Show series. Arguably one of the most prolific artists out of Africa and one of the biggest international artists on the globe, the Afrofusion star first graced the stage of The O2 arena alongside Stormzy at the BRIT Awards in 2020 and now returns for his first-ever headline show on Friday 27 August 2021.
Burna Boy’s Twice As Tall event will be the first event in The Welcome Back Show series which also features Ministry of Sound Classical on 13 November and UK comedian Mo Gilligan + Friends with ‘The Black British Takeover’ on 8 December.
