21 Savage at London O2 Arena: timings, setlist, tickets and everything you need to know

21 Savage is in town this week for his very first headline UK gig – and it’s been a long time coming. The rapper (whose birth name is Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) is one of this generation’s most popular rappers, with platinum-selling albums and collaborations with Drake, Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, Travis Scott and many, many more huge names. 

This week’s show promises to be a big deal, not least because it follows a saga in which 21 Savage was arrested for being, well, British. In 2019 American immigration officials revealed that he was actually a UK citizen (born in Plaistow,, east London, no less) who had come to the US as a child and stayed on a visa that expired way back in 2006. All that’s sorted now, with Savage getting his American citizenship this year. 

So, think of 21 Savage’s massive O2 show as something of a homecoming. Here’s everything you need to know about the show, from timings and tickets to a potential setlist.

The rapper’s show is on Thursday, November 30.
