Tickets for RAYE’s first ever headline show at London’s O2 Arena have sold out within just a day of going on sale. Due to take place on Friday 15th March, the event is set to be a grand extension of My 21st Symphony Live, her recent turn performing at the Royal Albert Hall alongside a live orchestra and gospel choir.
The achievement comes after she recently became the most nominated artist in a single year in BRIT Awards history, scooping a huge seven nominations, including for the coveted Album of the Year and Artist of the Year categories.
Prior to tickets going on sale, RAYE had commented: “This is my first headline performance at The O2 Arena. We will have 90 guests on stage, including the Heritage Orchestra and Flames Collective, our guests from The Royal Albert Hall, to perform My 21st Century Symphony. We scarily will have one month to attempt to sell 18,000 tickets, but no matter how many tickets we sell or don’t sell, I’m going to give the best show I can possibly give. I am counting down the days for this moment”. Now, it’s safe to say that thousands of fans are too.
