Titling his set This Is What We Mean Day, the August 18 Victoria Park slot will be the rapper’s only 2023 UK appearance.
Adopting the name from his upcoming album This Is What I Mean, fans were doubly excited at the prospect of seeing the artist perform new material live from the collection that’s set to be released on November 25.
Opening business at 10am today, eager festival goers shared their delight at securing tickets on social media, tagging the star as they went in tweets of gratitude.
‘I’m in! put my son in nursery early so I could dedicate myself to getting these bloody tickets without distraction can’t wait! Xx [sic],’ was a dedicated fan’s response to securing a place in the crowd.
Alongside a receipt of purchase this fan shared: ‘See you on the 18th of August!’ with a starry-eyed emoji.
Another poked fun posting: ‘F*** Boris! I’m in!’
Earlier this month, the Vossi Bop hitmaker teased his performance with a video announcement of the fixture on his Instagram.
Captioning the video diary-esque upload he wrote: ‘THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN DAY.
‘This is my only UK show next year and I promise you it will be an EXPERIENCE.
