Childish Gambino has announced a second date at the O@ Arena in London.

Rapper, artist, actor and producer Donald Glover will perform as Gambino on 25 March 2019, as well as on the earlier scheduled date on 24 March. He will be joined by special guest H.E.R on both nights.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on 7 December.

Gambino was forced to postpone dates for his This is America tour after suffering a reported foot injury in the US. He had to cancel his headline appearance at the Austin City Limits music festival in October, and also push back dates for cities including Nashville, Phoenix and Los Angeles. His O2 Arena show was previously scheduled for Sunday 4 November this year.

The rapper has said the ongoing tour will be his last. The show has received critical acclaim for its lights and artwork, along with Gambino's performance.

Got sweaty palms already? Check out our handy tips for dealing with the demand:

1) Make sure you are ready and waiting with the web page up at least five minutes before 9am.

2) Do not let your computer, phone or whatever device holds the key to your happiness run out of battery.

3) Register your details with the website you are booking from in advance, if you can, but don’t panic if you haven’t left enough time as your tickets will be held while you fill out your information

4) Check how many tickets you are allowed to buy in one purchase. If you try to buy more than the limited number, your booking may be cancelled without notice, meaning no-one gets to go.

5) Get your friends to try too, but stay in contact in case you all succeed and end up with a bunch of tickets you didn’t want. If you do need to sell any on, do so at face value. No-one likes a tout.

6) Be patient and avoid refreshing or switching between browsers. Stick with one tab and have some faith! Be prepared to wait for an hour to get tickets
