Mercury Awards announce new date after being postponed following Queen’s death

The Mercury Awards will take place on Tuesday 18 October after being postponed due to the Queen’s death, organizers have confirmed.

His event, recognizing the best British album of the year, will take place at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, west London, as previously planned.

Performances earlier this month were canceled at the last minute when news of the Queen’s death was announced, prompting a period of national mourning to begin.

Food from the event that may have turned into waste was distributed to the homeless following an online call-out led by singer and nominee Self Esteem.

Details on the nominated artists who will perform on the new date will be confirmed later.

To mark the BBC’s 100th birthday, broadcast partner BBC Music will broadcast live TV and radio broadcasts of the event.

BBC Four will also broadcast a program on October 18 from 9pm to 10:15pm.

Harry Styles, Sam Fender and Little Simz are among the artists running for the prestigious award.

Ten of the 12 acts – such as Wet Leg and Self Esteem – were nominated for the first time.

Last year, the Mercury Prize was won by Arlo Parks for his debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams.
