Zayn Malik is playing his first UK solo show in London – here’s how to get tickets

One Direction stans will remember the first time they saw Zayn Malik on the telly. He’s come a long way from refusing to do the choreography at X Factor bootcamp. But despite his now solidified stardom and eight years since the release of his first solo single ‘Pillowtalk’, he’s still never performed a solo show in the UK. Until now. 

Malik, performing just as Zayn, will do his first ever UK solo show at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire this month, marking the release of his fourth album Room Under The Stairs. Zayn will play a handful of tracks from the album at the gig, with the show following the premiere of his documentary Road Back To The Mic. Here’s how to get tickets to the one-off show. 

When is Zayn performing at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire?

Zayn’s first solo gig will take place on Friday May 17. 

When do tickets go on sale?
