British soul musician’s Michael Kiwanuka show was originally scheduled for June, 2020 in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, however, due to Covid-19, the artist was forced to postpone more than forty tour concerts.
Given that the whole world wants to see the Mercury and Brit Awards nominee with their own eyes, this was not the easiest task, but the organizers have managed to come to an agreement with the musician’s team to postpone the concerts. Due to the pandemic and current bans on public events, Michael Kivanuka’s concert new dates are:
- June 14, 2021 for Talinn, Estonia – TICKETS
- June 15, 2021 for Sigulda, Latvia – TICKETS
- June 16, 2021 for Vilnius, Lithuania – TICKETS
Already purchased tickets for Michael Kivanuka’s concerts are valid for a new date and do not need to be exchanged.
If the new dates do not suit you for reasons that can be justified, the organizers can offer to exchange the purchased ticket for a coupon, the value of which is equal to the ticket price, within six months from the moment of making the changes (until 17.12.2020). With this coupon you will be able to buy a ticket to another event organized by the agency “8 Days A Week” in the future.
Michael Kivanuka started his career as a session guitarist, working with artists such as Chipmunk and Bashy, before signing with Communion Records. He released two EP’s, ‘Tell Me a Tale’ and ‘I’m Getting Ready’ in 2011. He came to prominence when he won BBC Sound of 2012 and then went on to release his Mercury Prize nominated debut album, ‘Home Again’. He put out his second album, ‘Love and Hate’ in May 2016 via Polydor Records, which was also nominated for the Mercury Prize. His latest album, ‘Kiwanuka’, arrived in November 2019. ‘Music Week’ quotes the singer as saying, “I’m super proud and overwhelmed by the response and how it’s been received. People are still discovering it. It’s quite overwhelming because it feels like the music is getting to more people. I’m at a new stage career-wise in terms of the amount of people coming to shows.”
He has headlined his own shows and tours across the UK, US and Europe and has played festivals such as Glastonbury, Latitude, Hard Rock Calling and more.
In his review of Kiwanuka’s tour, “The Guardian” writer Dave Simpson said, “The London-born son of Ugandan immigrants is connecting with something deeper: soulful music steeped in self-doubt, global problems, emotional agony and fleeting glimpses of ecstasy.” He continued, “A superb six-piece band (including the two singers) mesmerically recreate album highlights. Although there are echoes of Bill Withers and Trouble Man-era Marvin Gaye, it’s not overburdened by nostalgia.”
