Róisín Murphy is set to play the first ever contemporary music show to be staged at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.

The show will follow the release of Murphy’s new album ‘Take Her Up To Monto’, which is released through Play It Again Sam on 8 Jul. Of the record, she says: “It’s about the London that I live in. It’s a lot about architecture, it’s about building and the future coming, it’s about here. I hope it’s a realism that makes you feel good about being alive”.

She will headline the main Globe theatre on 15 Aug as part of a series of concerts under the banner Wonder Women, curated by Lauren Laverne and culture website The Pool. All other artists will play in the building’s smaller Playhouse venue.

Tickets available here.
