Dizzee Rascal will mark the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking debut album ‘Boy In Da Corner’ with a huge headline show at The O2 in London next year.

Taking place on March 8 at the 20,000 capacity venue, the headline performance is poised to be one of the legendary grime artist’s most memorable live shows to date.

Released in July 2003, when the innovative MC and producer was only 18, ‘Boy In Da Corner’ won the Mercury Prize and is widely accepted as one of the best grime full-length projects of all time. Dizzee will be winding back the years on the evening of the show, performing tracks from the record as well as welcoming a selection of “very special guests”.

Speaking about the landmark moment, Dizzee says: “It’s mad how it’s 20 years since ‘Boy In Da Corner!’. That album changed my life and I’m forever thankful to everyone who’s shown love in that time. To celebrate two decades on, I’m buzzing to bring something very special to The 02 alongside some very special guests! Make sure to get your tickets and come celebrate with your boy !”.

Pre-sale tickets will become available on October 5, with general sale tickets available on October 7. Sign up for tickets HERE.
