International Afro-fusion pioneer Burna Boy will perform a global, immersive livestreamed show at O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday 18th November, available exclusively on MelodyVR.
This special virtual event, ‘Live from London’, is billed to take place live from O2 Academy Brixton, one of London’s most iconic venues. It will boast jaw-dropping production and visuals, and a setlist filled with the African giant’s hits like ‘Wonderful’ and ‘Real Life’, and newer tracks from his huge summer album Twice as Tall.
Fusing dancehall, reggae, Afrobeat and pop, Burna Boy emerged in 2010 as one of Nigeria’s fastest-rising stars. He has since solidified his place in Nigeria and the world with his globally accepted Afrofusion sound, achieving phenomenal international success with hits such as ‘Ye’, ‘Gbona’, ‘Monsters You Made’ featuring Coldplay’s Chris Martin, ‘20 10 20’ and ‘Own It’ (with Stormzy and Ed Sheeran), to mention a few.
Burna Boy quote: “I can’t wait to come at you, live from London with MelodyVR. This virtual show will be from the heart to my friends around the world. It’ll be twice as close, twice as realistic and twice as tall.”
Tickets for this one-off performance go on sale on November 6 from 10am GMT via www.LiveNation.co.uk
