Nigerian Artist Wizkid announced a concert at a 62,850-capacity Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in London. This would make him the first African artist to attempt to sell out the Stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the home of Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur in North London with a seating capacity of 62,850. It is the third-largest football stadium in England and the largest club ground in London. It is designed to be a multi-purpose stadium and features the world’s first dividing, retractable football pitch, which reveals a synthetic turf field underneath for NFL London Games, concerts, and other events. For a football game, it has a capacity of 62,850 but for a music concert, it can hold as many as 100,000.
When the internationally famous singer announced the sale of his tickets for the concert to be hosted at the English Premier League stadium it sparked a major frenzy; an American man posted a video of himself dancing to one of his songs and saying he awaits his presence.
As much as this is a great feat, it is not a very big challenge for the international sensation as he has previously sold out the 02 arena three times.
