Jubilee parties and one-off intimate shows, a huge few months lie ahead for the Albert Hall as we head into the summer months.

Miles Kane | Wed 25 May

Renowned for his all-action live performances, the chance to catch Miles Kane under the roof of the Albert Hall doesn’t sound too shabby at all.

Support comes from Scottish songstress Brooke Combe, who Miles recently dueted with in a soulful cover of Womack’s & Womack’s Teardrops, and BBC Next Wave artist Tom A. Smith.

Twisted Circus 3 | Thu 26 May

Back by incredibly popular demand, the jaw-dropping circus production show brings together the biggest and best names from the drag world. Hosted by DJ AndyRew and Lil Joey, also appearing will be Yvie Oddly, Tayce, Jimbo the Drag Clown, Scarlet Bobo, Madame Madness, Crystal Methyd and Denali Foxx.

Kaluki: Eastenderz | Wed 1 Jun

Celebrate the jubilee in some style, as Kaluki and WHP team up once more to bring together a hugely impressive billing that includes East End Dubs B2B with Chris Stussy, Traumer, Rossi., Lauren Lo Sung and Ray Mono.

La Discothèque Queens Jubilee Bottomless Brunch | Fri 3 Jun

Another jubilee celebration, this time of the bottomless brunch variety.

Fittingly, Mancunian favourites La Discothèque will steer their festivities towards the queens of disco; Diana Ross, Chaka Kahn and Donna Summer.

Guests will get a summer picnic, along with 90 minutes of bottomless prosecco, bellini, rosini, mimosa, lager or cider, all while enjoying a live lip sync cabaret from La Disco’s own queens, Lill, Banksie, Val Qaeda and the one and only Miss Blair.

There’ll be two sessions on the day (12pm-2pm & 3pm-5pm), with soundtracks also provided by Mix-Stress and the Niallist.

TLC | Wed 15 Jun

After their initial one-off London date this summer was met with overwhelming demand, ’90s icons TLC just had to add a couple of extra shows, including one at Manchester’s Albert Hall.

The group, made up of Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas, will be serving up unmistakable hits like ‘No Scrubs’, ‘Waterfalls’, and ‘Unpretty’, in an evening packed with glorious nostalgia.

Tune-Yards: Gorilla | Tue 23 Aug

In a crossover we can firmly get behind, the Albert Hall has teamed up with Gorilla to present a special one-off, intimate show from Tune-Yards.

It follows a triumphant show at the Albert Hall back in 2018, and offers fans the chance to hear material from her new record Sketchy.
