Davido Set to Perform His First Concert at Madison Square Garden

Come next spring, Davido will perform his first concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Billboard can exclusively announce.

The Afrobeats superstar will perform at the legendary venue on April 17, 2024, as part of his extended Timeless Tour. Produced by Duke Concept, the three new North American arena dates will start with the MSG show, continue with a show at Montreal’s Place Bell on April 19 and end with a show at Orlando’s Additional Financial Arena on April 24. More and more major Nigerian acts have been able to headline MSG over the years, starting with Burna Boy‘s historic stint in April 2022, and including Wizkid‘s concert in November 2022.

“Seven years ago, I walked past Madison Square Garden and looked at it and said, ‘We gonna come back and shut this down,’” Davido tells Billboard in a statement. “So to be here now, able to play Madison Square Garden, in New York, one of the first cities and fans to embrace my music, at this iconic venue … it’s a dream come true.”

He’s nominated for best African music performance for his summer smash “Unavailable” with Musa Keys and best global music album for his fourth studio album, Timeless, ahead of the 2024 Grammy Awards. Davido released Timeless on March 31, 2023, via Davido Music Worldwide. The 17-track set reached No. 37 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on World Albums, and “Timeless” reached No. 3 on both U.S. Afrobeats Songs and World Digital Song Sales.
