Summer Series at Somerset House usually sells out in a heartbeat, only for tickets to appear a few hours later on those criminal websites at largely inflated prices. Twenty-Eleven’s session was no exception.
Every year though, there are one or two gigs that aren’t as popular as the others. A misjudgement on their part… I don’t think so because one of the few not to have sold out is probably the most exciting of the line-ups. I Need a Dollar Aloe Blacc headlines. However, support from Yasmin and Dionne Broomfield make the concert extremely tasty.
Seeing diverse American talent alongside the cream of the next generation from the UK should make for a beautiful contrast in styles.
The opulent setting of Somerset House should make for a breathtaking evening of soul, retro influenced and modern. US Swagger and British Grit.
The concert takes places on Sunday 10th July, and tickets are available for £22.75 (+fees) from Ticketmaster (link here).
Should be a very good show indeed… now can I make back from the British Grand Prix in time to go???
