Guest post: Upcoming concerts

Hi everyone! If you love music, you probably know about all the upcoming concerts, but I thought that I will share this guest post with you anyway :) The only thing I am interested in is seeing System Of A Down in August in Leeds, but everyone likes different artists and you might want to get a last minute ticket to see Beyonce or One Direction this weekend :) Without further ado, here is the guest post:

Summer of music: the best upcoming concerts

With spirits always high during the spring/summer season, it’s the perfect time to join your fellow music fans in supporting your favourite artists live in concert - whether that’s shaking your hips to R&B or humming along to pop classics.
Here’s a selection of some of the best upcoming concerts around the country.


USA singing sensation Beyonce first stormed the world stage as part of feisty four-piece girl band Destiny’s Child before going it alone to create catchy chart toppers such as 'Crazy in Love' and 'Irreplaceable'.
This summer snap up Beyonce tickets to see Mrs Carter shaking her stuff at The Sound of Change Live Concert at Twickenham Stadium on June 1. Tickets can be purchased online but make sure you always use reputable  ticket reseller sites (on StubHub prices start at £49.99).
Queen B will also be joined at the event by music legend Madonna and the latest movers in the world of music including Florence and the Machine, Rita Ora and Timbaland.


Musical superstars Muse are known for fusing musical styles including progressive rock, glam and electronica to create a unique sound that has earned them scores of fans across the globe.
Catch them in concert at Manchester’s Etihad stadium on June 1. With the band’s live performances often billed as being as much a visual splendour as an auditory one, you could get the chance to sing along to original hits such as ‘Plug in Baby’ and their iconic cover of the well-loved ‘Feeling Good’.

Elvis Costello

Singer-songwriter Elvis Costello shot to fame in the 1970s as part of the Punk/New Wave movement and he will be live in concert with his band The Imposters at Colston Hall, Bristol on June 2.
Classic Costello hits that have captured the world’s imagination over the decades include ‘What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love and Understanding’, ‘Oliver’s Army’ and ‘Pump it up’, and his music has spanned styles from rock to classical.

One Direction

From screen to stage, boyband One Direction have certainly whipped up a storm in the pop world. Whilst they may not have the extensive history of some of the acts mentioned above, they’ve certainly packed a lot into their three years in the limelight. 

Totting up more than 20 million record sales and an abundance of awards, their business empire has been valued at an estimated $50 million. With global appeal that has even taken the US chart by storm, Brits interested in getting a glimpse of the latest home-grown talent can find them at four fantastic stadiums in 2014. Kicking things off at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on May 28, the boys will end their UK adventure in London’s Wembley Stadium on June 7 after first visiting Manchester’s Ethiad Stadium and Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium. 
With tickets on sale from May 25, fans are advised to get on early to avoid disappointment as demand will no doubt be high. Reputable sites such as StubHub list all the latest concert dates and tickets so take a look at their  website for more information on tickets to see One Direction.
