Tiwa Savage is set to headline her first major show in the United Kingdom!
The concert tagged “The Savage Tour” holds on August 24 at the 3000 capacity Indigo at the O2 Arena in London. “Time is almost here, London I promise you carnival weekend is going to be bananas,” Tiwa wrote on Instagram. This is coming after Tiwa Savage as performed various shows across the US and UK, which include Wizkid’s sold-out 02 Arena concert in May.
Recall that on June 29, Adekunle Gold had one of the best shows of his career when he sold out the Indigo at 02 Arena for his “About 30” album concert. “Last year, we sold out 800 capacity (O2 Academy Islington). Today, AG is doing about 4x what he did last year. This is growth, this is love. It’s astounding and without a doubt, I am the happiest man in the world tonight,” Adekunle said on the concert where he performed with his longtime collaborator, Simi.
Tiwa Savage has been billed to perform at a special Global Citizen Festival in honor of former South Africa President Nelson Mandela on December 2. Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Ed Sheeran will headline the concert, which will be held at the 94,736 capacity FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mandela died in 2013.
Others performing at the Global Citizen festival include Usher, Eddie Vedder, a joint set from Pharrell Williams and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and African artists including Cassper Nyovest, D’banj, Sho Madjozi, Wizkid, and Femi Kuti.
