As London’s music scene charges forward into spring, there’s no let-up in the number of big gigs taking place across the city. Here’s our overview of the must-see live music in London this March.
The best London gigs in March
The Clapton-based hip hop queen who’s collaborated with everyone from Demi Lovato to Idris Elba, via Skepta and Kim Petras, plays a hometown show in nearby Hackney. Expect her to boss the stage like she owns it.
Kisstory has assembled a genuinely incredible ’90s/’00s nostalgia tour featuring Nelly, Shaggy, Salt-N-Pepa pushin’ it real good, and Fatman Scoop as resident hype guy. ‘Case of the Ex’ hitmaker Mya is on the bill too, as are a gaggle of UK garage stars: So Solid members Lisa Maffia and MC Romeo, MC DT, Oxide & Neutrino, DJ Luck & MC Neat and Sweet Female Attitude. Bangers for daaaaays (or at least a few hours).
The Swedish-singer songwriter behind some of the edgiest alt-pop bops in recent years – ‘Stay High’, ‘Talking Body’ and ‘Disco Tits’, to name but three – tours in support of her ‘Sunshine Kitty’ album. If previous Tove Lo shows are anything to go on, it should be a (slightly) naughty blast.
The YouTube sensation and intriguing, difficult-to-pigeonhole singer-songwriter plays her biggest London headline shot yet. This gig is definitely one for the pop cognoscenti.
The genre-blending alt-pop auteur celebrates the 20th anniversary of her stunning, The Neptunes-produced debut album ‘Kaleidoscope’. It’s home to her famous breakthrough hit ‘Caught Out There’ – a.k.a. ‘I hate you so much right now!’ – but the rest of the album still sounds pretty tremendous, too.
The Scottish shoegazing pioneers play their iconic ‘Darklands’ album in full. Expect sublime gloom-rock from start to finish.
Um... Harry who? The former One Direction singer, now pursuing a slightly more indie sound, embarks on his first ever solo tour.
Fresh from supporting Lewis Capaldi on tour, the soulful (and hotly-tipped) Londoner embarks on her own run of headline shows. If you haven’t already, check out her lovely cover of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Game’.
Don’t miss out, because this Brixton gig is the only UK headline show of 2020 from the Swedish electro alchemists who deftly blend trip-hop, alt-R&B and downtempo sounds.
After topping the charts with debut album ‘Hypersonic Missiles’, the indie rising star – who's been called a ‘Geordie Springsteen’ – heads to Ally Pally for a huge headline show.
