Otherworldly dream pop, Arabic folk-indie rock blends, our latest guide to Manchester’s Albert Hall gig calendar features names as eclectic as they are impressive.

Here’s what’s coming up…

Tom Chaplin | Mon 10 Oct

After Keane’s 2019 Cause and Effect tour came to a pandemic-induced halt in 2019, frontman Tom Chaplin began writing what would become his acclaimed third solo record, Midpoint. With things looking at least a bit more normal these days, Tom is set to bring that record to the Albert Hall stage this October.

Adekunle Gold | Fri 14 Oct

After delivering a stellar support performance at Burna Boy’s Manchester Arena gig back in March, Nigerian singer-songwriter Adekunle Gold’s Catch Me If You Can tour stops at the Albert Hall for what’ll no doubt be a memorable Friday night at the venue.

Angel Olsen | Fri 21 Oct

Six albums in and Angel Olsen has more than earned the widespread acclaim she’s garnered across the globe. Sitting somewhere between dark dream pop and folk, the chance to catch her on a Friday night in Manchester is simply too good to be missed.

The Murder Capital | Thu 16 Feb

With the imminent release of their much-anticipated second album, Gigi’s Recovery, The Murder Capital will quickly follow that up with a UK tour in February. Given their last run of dates were mostly met with sold-out crowds, along with their biggest sell-out show to date at London’s Electric Ballroom, we imagine tickets won’t be hanging around for too long.

Tamino | Wed 8 Mar

Tamino brings a wildly unique blend of Arabic folk, experimental indie rock and orchestral arrangements to town, via the fascinatingly brilliant record Sahar. The album features some impressive collaborations, including Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood.
