From dancehall legends to cult surf rockers, Albert Hall provides yet another eclectic slate of music icons to guarantee a summer of unmissable gigs in Manchester.

Dope Lemon | Tue 13 Jun | 7pm | £27.40

Returning to the Albert Hall stage with a woozier, creamier sound than his previous projects, Angus Stone embraces slick summery grooves under a new pseudonym, Dope Lemon.

Perhaps personally responsible for the sonic foundations of contemporary R&B, noughties icon Kelis performs a peerless selection of titanic hits from her stellar career. Exploding onto the scene after singing the hook on Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Got Your Money, Kelis altered the trajectory of modern hip-hop, pop and R&B with tracks like Milkshake, Acapella and Millionaire.

Jamming down to Manchester from reggae’s Mount Rushmore, Barrington Levy brings his UK tour to Albert Hall with a masterful selection of hits from a career spanning almost half a century, including Black Roses, Too Experienced, My Time, Under Mi Sensi and more.
