Asake Sells Out O2 Arena Concert
Nigerian singer Asake has sold out his concert at the O2 Arena in London, making him the latest African artist to achieve this feat.
The concert, which is scheduled for August 20, 2023, will be Asake’s first time performing at the O2 Arena, which is one of the largest and most prestigious indoor arenas in the world.
Tickets for the concert went on sale on May 12, 2023 and have completely sold out. This is due to Asake’s growing popularity in the UK and around the world.
Asake is known for his unique blend of Afrobeats and hip hop, and his songs have been streamed millions of times on Spotify and Apple Music. He has won several awards, including the Headies Award for Next Rated in 2022.
The O2 Arena concert is sure to be a sell-out due to Asake’s talent and star power. He is one of the most exciting new artists in Africa, and he is poised to have a long and successful career.
This announcement came a few months after the tragic events at his December O2 Academy Brixton show. A crowd crush during the performance led to the unfortunate loss of two fans’ lives, with a third attendee sustaining critical injuries.
Asake’s upcoming O2 Arena performance will be his first concert in the capital since the incident. This show at the 20,000-capacity venue is anticipated to become one of his most significant London performances to date.
