Spaceship Entertainment, Whytelion and Cokobar are excited to announce that Grammy Award-winning artist Burna Boy will return to the London Stadium on Saturday 29th June 2024 as part of the I Told Them… Tour, following a triumphant sellout show in June 2023 which made him the first ever African artist to headline a UK stadium.
Burna Boy’s recent performance at the London Stadium showcased why he is regarded as one of the most electrifying and exhilarating live performers. Featuring countless hits from his extensive back-catalogue, star-studded guest appearances from Stormzy, Dave, J Hus and Popcaan, with state-of-the-art production, sound and lighting – it is only right that the Nigerian superstar returned to deliver what is sure to be another unforgettable show.
Burna Boy said: "London holds a special place in my heart, the energy and love from my fans here is unmatched. I'm thrilled to be returning to the London Stadium on 29th June 2024, after the incredible show we had earlier this year. It's always an honour to perform for my UK fans, and this time, we're going bigger and better. Get ready, we're about to make history once again!"
Apple Music Live exclusively streamed Burna Boy’s 2023 London Stadium show as part of their live performance series, with fans from around the world coming together to watch the international premiere. As well as making history in London, Burna Boy also sold-out stadiums in Paris, Arnhem and New York City, he is set to return to these and other regions in 2024 as part of the I Told Them… Tour.
The Afro-fusion musician also broke further records this year when his latest album, I Told Them…, topped the Official UK Albums Chart with the number 1 position. Featuring hit singles “City Boys” and “Cheat On Me” plus collaborations with rap royalty including J. Cole and 21 Savage, this will be one of the first opportunities for UK fans to hear his new music live.
Ropo Akin, CEO of Whytelion/Coko Bar, said: “We have watched Burna Boy from when he started his journey with us back in 2014. It’s been amazing to be a part of Burna Boy’s vision and for us to help fulfill part of his dreams. It’s been an honor to be alongside his inspiring journey. He is a model talent that any promoter would want to work with, and we have now become family.”
Graham Gilmore, CEO of London Stadium, said: “Following the phenomenal success of Burna Boy’s record-breaking 2023 show, we are delighted to welcome the artist back to London Stadium for 2024! It was a privilege to be the first stadium to host an African solo artist here in the UK and we look forward to another incredible show next year, to add to our amazing summer schedule for 2024.”
Jayd Williams, Head of Music Partnerships and Sponsorship Virgin Media O2, said: “It’s so exciting to see Burna Boy returning to London next summer with tickets sure to be in high demand. If you’re an O2 or Virgin Media broadband customer, fear not as you can secure early access to tickets through Priority before general sale.”

Burna Boy was born Damini Ogulu in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria, in 1991 and began making music at just ten years old. As a teenager he honed his craft on Nigeria’s southern coast, creating his own sound called Afro Fusion. In the early 2010s Burna Boy emerged as one of Nigeria’s fastest-rising stars, combining influences from his Nigerian heritage with hook-filled pop stylings to create unforgettable tracks. His 2012 single ‘Like to Party’ broke into the global mainstream and paved the way for his full-length debut L.I.F.E, a year later.
Since then, Burna Boy has released six more albums (including the 2023 UK #1 LP I Told Them…) and collaborated with an eclectic list of high-profile artists including J. Cole, Ed Sheeran, late Sidhu Moosewalla, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Sam Smith, J Hus, Stormzy, Dave, Lily Allen and Jorja Smith. Breaking cultural boundaries, he became the first Nigerian to headline a show at New York’s Madison Square Garden and the first African artist to headline a UK stadium, also picking up a Grammy-award along the way for Best Global Music Album with his 2020 LP Twice as Tall.
