Laufey announces biggest UK headline show to date at London’s Royal Albert Hall

Laufey has announced details of a UK headline show, taking place at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Find ticket information below.

The tour is just one of the many stops that the Grammy-nominated Icelandic-Chinese artist, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist will embark on for 2024, and will be her biggest headline show to date in the UK.

Set to take place on May 16, the concert will be a career-defining moment for the singer and comes in celebration of her latest LP ‘Bewitched’ – which arrived back in September and later broke the record as the biggest-ever debut for a jazz album on Spotify.

The new dates follow Laufey’s completely sold-out North American tour this autumn and her UK/European tour next February and March. It also includes an extensive run of North American dates that will run between April and May.

“It’s such an honour to play at Royal Albert Hall,” said Laufey of the new announcement. “It’s one of those venues that has historically brought different musical worlds together, which I strive to do as a musician.”

Tickets for all newly announced shows will go on sale this Friday (December 8) at 10am local time. Visit here for tickets to UK shows and here for tickets to US dates. Additionally, look below for a full run of upcoming shows.

As well as breaking the Spotify record for the biggest debut of a jazz album, ‘Bewitched’ also debuted at #2 on Spotify’s Global and U.S. Album Charts and was nominated for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” at the 2024 GRAMMY Awards.

The hit single ‘From The Start’ is now RIAA-certified GOLD in the US, Australia and Canada, and the LP followed on from her 2022 debut album ‘Everything I Know About Love’.

As well as turning heads with the release of ‘Bewitched’, Laufey is also the cover star for the latest edition of NME. She follows on from the two previous issues, which featured d4vd and ENHYPEN on the cover, and the November/December 2023 issue is now available exclusively at retailer Dawsons.

She also spoke to NME earlier this year, recalling the inspiration behind her lyrics in ‘Bewitched’. “Love and relationships became this really curious thing to me, because I entered into it so late that it went from nothing to something in like a night,” she said. “I remember thinking to myself, ‘Everybody goes through this?’”

She also recalled how she moved away from a perfectionist mindset to create the album, stating: “You have to learn to unlearn, I am a true believer in that… I’m breaking so many rules every single day, and I think that’s where you make good music.”
