Davido Set to Hold First Concert at New York’s Iconic Madison Square Garden

Davido, the Afrobeats sensation, is poised to perform at the legendary Madison Square Garden (MSG) for the first time.

MSG, often known as The Garden, is a classic sports venue in Midtown Manhattan, New York.

The multi-purpose indoor arena with a capacity of 2000 people is divided into sections for sports and entertainment activities such as basketball, boxing, concerts, and wrestling.

The artist recently turned to social media to reveal the dates for the second leg of his ‘Timeless’ North American tour, which will take place in 2024.

On April 17, Davido will be taking centre stage at the iconic arena after which he will perform at Montreal’s Place Bell two days later.

The singer will end the tour with an unforgettable finale at Orlando’s Additional Financial Arena on April 24.



Speaking on his forthcoming performance, Davido said “it is a dream come true” to headline a concert at the iconic venue.

“Seven years ago, I walked past Madison Square Garden and looked at it and said, ‘We gonna come back and shut this down,” the singer told Billboard.

“So to be here now, able to play Madison Square Garden, in New York, one of the first cities and fans to embrace my music, at this iconic venue … it’s a dream come true.”

With the forthcoming performance, Davido will join fellow Nigerian heavyweights — Wizkid (November 2022) and Burna Boy (April 2022) — who have thrilled concertgoers at the legendary MSG.

The ‘Assurance’ hitmaker released ‘Timeless’, his fourth album, on March 31.

On April 10, the album secured the 37th spot on the United States Billboard 200 chart.

‘Timeless’ surpassed one billion streams across major platforms on August 3.
