Dizzee Rascal is an enigma. Bursting into the music scene at 18 with his debut album “Boy In Da Corner” in 2003 it’s clear he was destined for big things. The year of the album’s release saw him win a coveted Mercury Prize for best album of the year as well as two MOBO award nominations. Now 20 years on you have the chance to catch a Dizzee Rascal concert that can’t be compared at the O2 Arena in London on March 8, 2023.
Whilst the concert is championing Dizzee Rascal’s “Boy In Da Corner, his career since then has only gone from strength to strength. Over the years not only has he continued to win several awards, he’s also worked with some of the biggest names in music. Whether it’s Shakira, Calvin Harris, or will.i.am – he’s worked with them all. His work with Calvin Harris in particular played a huge role in later successes with the pair’s work leading to two number one singles – “Dance Wiv Me” & “Holiday”.
With such a storied career you can expect a lot from this Dizzee Rascal anniversary concert. Get ready for a sing along that travels across the years as you’re sure to hear hits like “Bonkers”, “Sirens”, “I Luv You” and many more on the night. Yet that’s not all you can expect, speaking on his upcoming headline show Dizzee said:
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!”
So be prepared for some surprises along the way on this unforgettable night. Taking over the 20,000 capacity O2 London – there’s no better place for a show like this. The venue has a history as rich as the artists that grace its stages and Dizzee is exactly the calibre of artist that should be on that stage.
