It’s been quite a year for PJ Harvey: in February, her latest album, Let England Shake, won her some of the best reviews of an already acclaimed career; in September, she won the Mercury prize for the second time; earlier this month, she sat next to David Cameron on Andrew Marr’s TV show and heard from the prime minister that “Samantha bought the album off iTunes … we’ve listened to it a couple of times. Very keen.” But then, you can’t have it all …
PJ Harvey plays her last UK date of 2011 at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 31 October, the second of two nights at the venue, her first-ever shows there. Tickets are sold out but you can watch it live on guardian.co.uk/music.
