Nine miles separates Alexandra Palace from AJ Tracey’s home turf of Ladbroke Grove – a short tube journey, yet a huge career milestone for the fiercely independent artist. Embarking on two consecutive sold-out shows in November – which had guest appearances from the likes of Dave, Skepta, MoStack and Stormzy – the AJ Tracey production team saw ecstatic fans surround an ambitious in-the-round show, featuring a TAWBOX design as dazzling as the artist’s charisma.
