As the U.K. tentatively comes out of lockdown and the entertainment industry slowly gets back on its feet, this week pop princess Anne-Marie teamed up with Capital FM to launch the stations summer concert series Capital Up Close with Barclaycard.
Taking to the stage at London’s Under the Bridge, the Birthday singer performed an electric set, made up of some of her biggest hits, exclusively for Capital listeners and Barclaycard customers.
