Following his sold-out show at Grand Social, Aiken Promotions proudly presents Loyal Carner biggest headline show to date, live at Vicar Street, 29th October 2019. 

Loyle Carner released his sophomore album ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ earlier this year to huge critical and commercial acclaim; the album charted at #3 in the UK Charts. This follows the wild acclaim of his debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ which saw Loyle nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ and ‘Best Male’ gongs at the BRIT Awards alongside a Mercury Prize nomination for his debut album. Loyle’s pre-album tour (including a headline show at The Roundhouse) sold out in 5 minutes, solidifying his reputation as one of the most exciting musicians in the UK at the moment.
