For the first time ever at the Royal Albert Hall and for one night only, the mythical, dangerous, acrobatic and heroic world of Mexico’s masked wrestlers. Sixteen of Mexico’s finest, lead by the legendary Blue Demon Jr join battle under the Hall’s mighty dome.

Lucha LIbre is huge, jaw-hanging, riotous fun of a kind that you will never forget. Marvel at high flying acrobatics, and astonishing moves. Featuring the funkiest live music from Tijuana’s Bostich & Fussible (Nortec Collective). An exhilarating, foot-stamping, air-punching journey to the centre of a life-affirming struggle where rudos fight tecnicos and where good does not always triumph over evil.

Not since Muhammad Ali boxed here in 1971 have such enormous personalities come to settle their differences in the Hall’s hallowed ring.
