Following in the footsteps of his iconic father Fela Kuti, Afrobeat aficionado Seun Kuti will be joined by a collection of insanely talented musicians in the form of Egypt 80 to bring a stunning live show to London this winter.

Coming to Islington Assembly Hall on Saturday 11th November, Kuti will demonstrate the funky fury of studios albums such as From Africa With Fury: Rise as well as most recent record A long Way To The Beginning, exhibiting politically charged afrobeat with empowering lyrics, wild rhythms and outrageously groovy basslines.

Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 will be supported on the night by Manchester based 11 piece Ethiojazz outfit Agbeko, who are set to blow the crowd away with their bold, bassy sound, ahead of the evening's mighty headline show.

You can find Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 tickets below.
