ANNOUNCES INTIMATE LONDON SHOW

SET TO PLAY READING AND LEEDS FESTIVAL
In December 2019, Sigrid headlined Eventim Apollo to critical acclaim for her unparalleled stage presence (5* Times) off the back of her top 5 debut album Sucker Punch. Little did she know that performance would be her last for over a year. Now, Sigrid returns to London for her very first live show since the pandemic hit, in an intimate setting at London’s Lafayette on 26th August, before the Norwegian pop star takes to the main stage at Reading and Leeds Festival. Writing anthemic chorus’ for festivals that would become her definitive stage, it’s no surprise that the only place the 24-year-old feels truly “cool” and where she can take out “all those emotions” is performing live with her band. It’s hard not to forget Sigrid’s defining Glastonbury moment in 2019, pitting her as one of the world’s favourite live acts. The show announcement follows the release of Sigrid’s monumental new single “Mirror”, which has been described as the “empowerment anthem of the summer” (ELLE), and climbed to the BBC Radio 1 A List and Capital A List within a matter of weeks. Lafayette will be the first time Sigrid plays the future hit live. Fans can sign up to access tickets now, with pre-sale opening on 7th July.
The past year has been a time of deep reflection for Sigrid. Since her ascent to pop stardom in 2017, Sigrid achieved every accolade a young artist from a small town off the coast of Norway could ever have imagined. From releasing her critically acclaimed debut EP Don’t Kill My Vibe, to winning the Sound of 2018, performing across the globe at The Royal Variety Show, the Nobel Peace Prize, headlining her first Arena show at 3Arena in Dublin to 12,000 fans, and that Glastonbury performance to 30,000 festival goers and millions at home: Sigrid lit up stages with her non-conformist and progressive attitudes to the femininity in pop. Ending 2019 with a 5* (The Times) headline show at London’s Eventim Apollo, Sigrid hadn’t stopped in four years, but when the world stopped, Sigrid had an identity crisis, as the world turned inwards. “The thing that was most important to me was taken away; touring and travelling and being an artist. I thought, who am I without the music? My self-worth as a human is not just work, but who am I without my job? But last year made me realise I don’t want to do anything else. I wanted to do this for the rest of my life.”
As the world moves again, we are all ready to see Sigrid dance across the global stage, with Mirror in hand.
