Celeste has announced a trio of shows at London’s Islington Union Chapel for this summer.
The singer, who won the BBC’s Sound Of 2020 poll and the BRIT Awards’ Rising Star prize last year, is all set to play across three nights on July 6, 7 and 8. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday, January 22.
Since 1992, the Union Chapel has been hosting concerts and events on a regular basis. Readers of Time Out have voted the venue as their Favourite Venue three times. Their official website says, “We are proud to say that our venue is a little bit different. We have pews, amazing acoustics, sublime Victorian Gothic architecture and some really great gigs.”
The Union Chapel announcement comes after Celeste announced plans last week to release her debut album Not Your Muse a month earlier than planned on January 29. The singer-songwriter had initially confirmed February 26 as the record’s release date.
Speaking about the album upon its initial announcement back in December, Celeste explained that Not Your Muse is about “the power I found when I felt powerless”.
“In making this album I have allowed myself to arrive at a place where I feel empowered, fiercely wide-eyed and fulfilled,” Celeste said.
“I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved on my debut album and to be in this position, after the year that has been, I feel nothing but gratitude and excitement. I hope you enjoy it.”
