Capital Up Close Presents Years & Years
Tuesday 31 August
Capital, the UK’s no.1 hit music brand, and Barclaycard today (Friday 13th August), announced the third gig in this summer’s Capital Up Close series of live music events.
On Tuesday 31st August, Capital Up Close presents Years & Years with Barclaycard will see Years & Years performing a hit-filled set to a live audience at London’s Under the Bridge, with the gig also streamed live on Global Player. This is the third in-person event from Global and Barclaycard’s series Capital Up Close in London’s Under the Bridge venue, after Anne-Marie and Mabel played live gigs over the summer.
Olly Alexander will also chat to Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp, Sonny Jay and Sian Welby, who will host the intimate gig.
Years & Years are known for hit songs including ‘King’, ‘Breathe’ and The Official Big Top 40 no.1 ‘Starstruck’ and have collaborated with artists including Kylie Minogue, Jax Jones and MNEK. Olly Alexander is also renowned for playing the lead in Russell T Davies’ acclaimed drama It’s A Sin. His cover of the Pet Shop Boys’ track which inspired the show’s title – which he released with Elton John earlier this year – went straight to no.1 on The Official Big Top 40.
Fans will be able to win tickets to the exclusive live show by listening to Capital, plus the Barclaycard prize draw offers extra chances to win online.
“Playing to a live audience is the best feeling in the world and something I’ve missed so much! I’m very excited Capital Up Close with Barclaycard will be my first gig back and I actually can’t wait to see my fans again! I just know I’m going to get overwhelmed and cry tears of happiness; it’s going to be an amazing night!”
Years & Years’ Olly Alexander
“The series of Capital Up Close gigs with Barclaycard have been phenomenal and we can’t wait for the next one with Years & Years. Olly Alexander is a huge hit with Capital listeners, and we’ve seen how much everyone has enjoyed being back at live music shows so this promises
to be an epic night!”

After such a long hiatus of live music, we’ve seen such a great response from fans and Barclaycard customers alike. Our love of live entertainment continues this year, as we head into Autumn, there’s lots more to look forward to as we bring new and established talent to venues across the UK.”
