The small solo acoustic concert Beck will perform at London’s Lafayette next week has been announced.
On Tuesday, the Grammy-winning musician will perform live at Lafayette in King’s Cross, London (September 6).

Beck, who last issued an album in 2019 with “Hyperspace,” has performed a number of intimate, acoustic shows recently and has asked well-known performers to perform with him.

Dave Grohl joined Beck on stage earlier this month for a charity concert in Los Angeles. Judd Apatow, a producer, and director of movies organized the performance as one of several charity events at the Largo at the Coronet, a venue with a capacity of 280 people, in Los Angeles.
Tenacious D, Sarah Silverman, and comedian Pete Holmes all made cameos at the benefit concert, which included Beck as its headlining act.
In Nashville, Tennessee, in March, Jack White impersonated Beck during the latter’s little acoustic performance.
At what looked to be the beginning of Beck’s performance at the city’s Basement East club, the former leader of The White Stripes entered the stage.
“Hello, ladies and gentlemen. I’m Beck,” White swung a guitar over his shoulder and said, “I’m gonna play you one of my favorite songs from the 1990s that I wrote.” Then, instead of playing Beck songs, he started playing Chumbawamba’s 1997 smash “Tubthumping” and The Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”.
The actual Beck then returned, addressing Jack and demanding, “What are you doing?” White replied that he was tuning his guitar and had “warmed it up for you.” Take a look at this time.
Regarding unrelated news, Beck recently expressed sorrow about turning down Weird Al Yankovic’s request to parody “Loser.”
