Grammy award-winning singer Burna Boy is set to become the first African artist to headline a UK stadium when he performs at London Stadium on 3 June 2023.
The concert, promoted by Robomagic Live and Coko Bar, will be Burna Boy’s largest solo show, with more than 60,000 fans set to attend.
The concert follows the singer’s sold-out shows at Wembley Arena (12,500) in November 2019 and at The O2 Arena (20,000) in August 2021. He became the first Nigerian to headline a show at New York’s Madison Square Garden (20,789) in April this year.
Burna Boy said, “I’ve been told that I couldn’t achieve anything because of where I came from, I hope this can show people that when you have a dream it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, your dream can come true. This is going to be legendary, it’s history and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of that.”
