Featuring contemporary Irish folk, experimental rock and candid, up-close conversations with a WWE icon, Albert Hall’s typically eclectic upcoming events calendar offers some of the most exciting live performances in Manchester.

UNDERTAKER: 1 deadMAN SHOW | Mon 3 Jul | 7pm | From £50

Promising unheard stories, jaw-dropping insights and a uniquely intimate setting, the WWE Hall of Famer takes to the Albert Hall stage for a no-holds-barred trip down memory lane. From the backstage brawls to the memorable match-ups, ‘The Phenom’ holds forth – or ‘shoots’, in pro wrestling parlance – on every aspect of his incredible WWE career before taking a selection of questions from the audience.

Teddy Swims | Mon 10 Jul | 7pm | £28.50

Renowned for harmoniously merging soul, country, R&B and hip-hop both in his own music and in past collaborations with Armin Van Buuren, Matoma, MK and others, singer-songwriter Teddy Swims plays Albert Hall on Mon 10 Jul as part of an extensive world tour.

Swans | Sat 12 Aug | 7pm | £38.40

Celebrated for their constant sonic evolution, legendary experimental rock group Swans bring their UK Tour to Albert Hall with a selection of fan favourites spanning their 40-year existence. One of the only acts to emerge from New York City’s 1980s ‘no-wave’ scene and endure into the grunge-obsessed 90s, Swans boast a sprawling back catalogue which features forays into noise rock, post-punk, industrial, post-rock and more.

John Cale | Thu 24 Aug | 7pm | £42.25

Performing songs from a glittering solo career which has produced seventeen albums, including the acclaimed Paris 1919 and his most recent record, MERCY, the accomplished multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and founding member of The Velvet Underground stops at Albert Hall for the final night of a summer-long European tour.

LANKUM | Fri 26 Jan 2024 | 7pm | £23

Following their recent sold-out UK tour, contemporary Irish folk group LANKUM kick off Albert Hall’s 2024 schedule with a selection of songs from an oeuvre which offers ‘a creative expression of the internal, external, spiritual, historical, contemporary and cosmic all at once’ (Irish Times).
