This page lists all the live and streaming events currently planned to go ahead as The Met plans to bring live audiences back to the building. You can book now for the shows below, or view the full What’s On to also see shows which have been cancelled or rescheduled due to the pandemic.

Currently, there are no events with in-person tickets available until 17 May 2021, in-line with lockdown restrictions. This means we are working to reschedule some shows that were previously scheduled for this period. BUT we are still adding some great livestreamed shows that you can enjoy from home.

From 17 May, we’re looking forward to welcoming back socially-distanced audiences to the building in line with the proposed restrictions; we’ll update on capacities and restrictions for each event as they are confirmed. This may mean changes or reschedules for some shows that have previously been on sale.

We are provisionally able to offer shows on sale at full capacity from 21 June 2021.  There may be some capacity restrictions on certain shows after this date, as restrictions change and we do our best to look after all our gig-goers.

Head back to this page for the latest shows that become available to book for. If any of these events should subsequently be cancelled, for whatever reason, we will get in touch with ticket buyers to offer them a full refund.

If you’ve previously booked tickets for a show that has been affected by the latest changes we will email as soon as that show’s status is confirmed. Please be patient while we work with artists to reschedule their shows where possible.
