As most of you who read this blog know I go to quite a few shows and concerts predominantly for rock music but that isn’t to say that I don’t also love pop music. As I go to less pop shows (tickets are usually so expensive and they’re harder to get press for) there are still a handful of artists that I’ve never seen that I’d love to see.
I blooming love Ellie Goulding. I had tickets to see her earlier this year but totally didn’t realise it was over the Easter weekend (damn Easter being so early) and I was actually away so had to sell my ticket. I was completely gutted as I love her music and the footage I’ve seen has shown that she’s a great performer. Great news for me though is that she is playing Glastonbury next weekend so I am definitely going to make sure that I catch her.
Ah Taylor! Again I missed out on seeing her last summer at her Hyde Park show as I totally forgot to buy tickets before they sold out and then they were being sold for silly amounts of money. I love everything about Taylor from the outfits she wears on stage to her music and general performance. She’s just one of the coolest people out there and I know when she announces another tour I’m going to buy multiple tickets because I know enough people will want to go.
I’m not ashamed to say that I really like Beiber, especially the latest album which is pure gold. I actually bought tickets for V Festival this year purely because he is headlining and I can not wait. ‘Sorry’, ‘What Do You Mean?’ and ‘Love Yourself’ from the latest album are such massive tracks that I can’t wait to hear them played.
I was gutted when Beyonce announced that she was headlining Glastonbury in 2011 as I had gone the year before and the headliners left something to be desired (except obvz Stevie Wonder!) I have pretty much grown up with Beyonce from the Destiny’s Child days where we’d scream out ‘Independent Woman’ and ‘Survivor’ all the damn time. The Queen doesn’t tour all that much but this summer she is playing a special show in Dublin which I totally wish I could go to. If you fancy going you can enter a competition with Chill to win a pair of tickets to the show on 9th July at Dublin’s Croke Park. Enter here.
