Featuring British country stars, London rap legends, an inclusive day festival and a speaker-busting UK Garage blowout, Albert Hall’s upcoming concert calendar offers yet another uniquely diverse slate of live music performances.


Ward Thomas | Wed 5 Apr | 7pm-11pm | £30.15

Returning to Albert Hall on Wed 5 Apr, British country duo Ward Thomas perform songs from their brand new album, Music in the Madness. Described as both ‘a harmony-soaked balm for shattered souls’ and ‘an uplifting reminder of what really matters’, the record celebrates the healing power of music with a stirring blend of warm piano ballads and pop-studded Americana.

Peter Hook & The Light | Thu 6 Apr - Fri 7 Apr | £36.75

Fresh from their biggest-ever North American tour and a string of European dates, Peter Hook & The Light bring their first headline shows of the year to Manchester with a trio of gigs covering the first two albums of both Joy Division and New Order, followed by a triumphant recital of the Substances compilation. While the third date is sold out, tickets are still available to see Peter Hook & The Light perform Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Movement on Thu 6 Apr, and New Order’s Closer and Power, Corruption & Lies on Fri 7 Apr.

Professor Green | Tue 25 Apr | 7pm-11pm | £25.75

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of his era-defining album, At Your Inconvenience, UK rap prodigy-turned-multifaceted artist and mental health activist Professor Green rolls back the years with a concert featuring all of his chart-topping hits, including Read All About It, I Need You Tonight and Just Be Good to Green.

Garage Nation | Sun 30 Apr | 9pm-3am | From £25.75

Boasting their biggest Manchester lineup to date, Garage Nation transforms Albert Hall into early-noughties Ayia Napa with a legendary Bank Holiday Sunday featuring a who’s-who of UKG icons, including Artful Dodger, DJ Luck & MC Neat, So Solid Crew, Shola Ama, Heartless Crew and more.
