The concerts you have to see before the end of 2023

Music Thursday November 9, 2023 By: Harry Howes

We’re approaching the end of the year and as the weather gets colder and the nights get darker, festival season seems like a distant memory. But you don’t need mud, tents and sunshine to have a good time and there’s still plenty of exciting concerts to look forward to before we wave goodbye to 2023.

Next weekend marks the start of an exciting few weeks of concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, with some of the biggest stars in the world taking to the stage. And they’re not the only gigs on the horizon, with a load of mouth-watering concerts coming up in 2024.

Ed Sheeran – Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November

Having only just finished a sell-out world tour, Ed Sheeran has barely had a chance to breathe. But never one to disappoint, the superstar is treating the Royal Albert Hall to not one but two nights of acoustic magic later this month.

He’s been a busy boy, releasing two albums in 2023, and he’ll be performing the latter of the two in full alongside a live band and string section. ‘Autumn Variations’ was released in September and marks an end to Ed’s maths-themed releases.

The 32-year-old will perform to a packed out venue in London on 18th and 19th November and it will be the last opportunity to see him live before the New Year. His tour saw him perform in Paris, New York and LA among many others and he’ll be back on the road across Europe and Asia in 2024.

But if you can’t wait that long, you can watch him in style with Engage’s exclusive hospitality packages.

Kylie Minogue Friday 1st December

The Royal Albert Hall is no stranger to royalty and it welcomes the ‘Princess of Pop’ to the stage next month in the form of Kylie Minogue.

The Aussie icon released new album Tension back in September, which features the hit single ‘Padam Padam’. Kylie’s latest record flew up the charts and made her the first female artist to have a UK top 10 single in each of the last five decades.

For one night only, she’ll be entertaining the Royal Albert Hall as she introduces ‘An Audience with Kylie’. The Grammy Award winner will perform tracks from her new album, as well as take questions from her celebrity friends in the crowd.

The evening will be broadcast on ITV but if you want to experience it in person, you can enjoy the show from the best seats in the house with our hospitality packages.

What else is happening at the Royal Albert Hall?

It’s not only Ed Sheeran and Kylie Minogue who will be wowing the crowds in London this winter. Ahead of his annual New Year’s Eve extravaganza, Jools Holland will take to the stage on 24th and 25th November alongside his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.

Similarly, on 8th December, Jamie Cullum will treat crowds to The Pianoman at Christmas alongside a big band and special guests. The fun continues next year, with plenty of headline acts lined up to rock the Royal Albert Hall, including The Stranglers, Gipsy Kings, James Blunt, Bryan Adams, Eric Clapton and George Benson.

Other concerts to look forward to

If you fancy a pre-Christmas trip down memory lane, Madness will be rolling back the years at the O2 in December. And at the same venue you can catch The 1975 next February.

Take That will be there in April before Olivia Rodrigo performs in May and both acts will also be stopping at the Utilita Arena in Birmingham.

Plenty of high-profile names have announced huge tours next year, including Taylor Swift, Liam Gallagher, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and Green Day and you can enjoy all of them from the comfort of Engage’s exclusive hospitality areas.
