From soaring, tender acoustic indie folk to world-famous Latin carnival parties and the return of Lightning Seeds, Albert Hall enters the new year with yet another peerlessly diverse gig programme featuring a lineup of decorated music talent from around the world.

Here are some of the best gigs coming to Albert Hall.

Gregory Alan Isakov | Thu 23 Nov | 7pm | £28.50

On Thu 23 Nov, Colorado-based indie folk singer-songwriter and GRAMMY nominee Gregory Alan Isakov brings his Appaloosa Bones Tour to Albert Hall, performing a setlist of timeless tunes brimming with plaintive, delicate guitar melodies and gorgeous, moonstruck banjo harmonies. Known for wildly popular songs like Big Black Car, Amsterdam, If I Go, I’m Goin’ and Dandelion Wine, Isakov’s mystic, melancholy yet softly hopeful sound charts the richness of life on the sweeping, starlit plains of the old American Frontier.

Black Grape | Fri 24 Nov | 7pm | £31.80

Armed with deep, soul-jangling grooves, irresistible pop hooks and singularly uninhibited, wild-hearted lyricism, Shaun Ryder, ‘Kermit’ Leveridge and Black Grape hit the Albert Hall stage for a throwback hometown party led by Manchester’s original urban wordsmiths.

BRESH | Sat 25 Nov | 9pm | From £23

Following a wildly successful run of sold-out nights in the capital, legendary Latin rave masters BRESH bring ‘The Most Beautiful Party in the World’ to Manchester’ with a vibrant carnival of dancing, decorations, surprises and endless bangers on Sat 25 Nov.

Promising the city’s best Saturday night out in recent memory, the party organisation behind a host of viral blowouts in Mexico, Ibiza, Colombia and Ecuador host a seven-hour special packed with reggaeton, hip-hop, Latin rap and more.

Oliver Anthony | Thu 8 Feb | 7pm | £31.25

Arguably the defining solo musician of the year, the raw, rasping bard of the disenchanted has enjoyed a breakneck journey to the top of the mainstream music scene since the release of his simple yet blisteringly powerful paean to the downtrodden American, Rich Men North of Richmond, went viral overnight and debuted at number one on the Billboard charts.

Already a familiar name in the pantheon of authentic heartland folk music, Anthony’s passionate, powerful writing and flawless ability to capture contemporary rural working class despair have established him as a rare organic talent with limitless potential.

Lightning Seeds | Thu 5 Dec 2024 | 7pm | £36.25

Celebrating ‘35 years of pure joy’, one of Britain’s best-loved bands hit the Albert Hall stage next December for a well-earned victory lap featuring some of their biggest songs, honouring their triumphant career with a 20-track greatest hits album, Tomorrow’s Here Today, out on 24 Oct 2024.
