The BRIT Awards are over, but that doesn’t mean the music is stopping in London – three of the biggest acts in the music industry are bringing their highly-anticipated tours to the city this spring. With Justin Timberlake, Ellie Goulding and Beyonce all making the rounds in London during the next few months, there’s plenty of musical goodness to experience, and we’ve got all the details for you!
Justin Timberlake‘s “The 20/20 Experience World Tour” is stopping in London for shows on 1-2 April, and it’s Timberlake’s first solo tour in nearly six years. The nine-time Grammy winner is one of the most multi-talented performers of his generation, with an incredible voice and the style and dance moves to match! He’s come a long way in his career, saying “Bye Bye Bye” to his boy band days in N*SYNC and setting his sights on becoming the new king of pop (we think he’s pretty much achieved that title already!). “The 20/20 Experience” is certain to be a memorable one for the lucky Londoners in attendance. (For tickets, go here.). Oh and if you didn’t catch his ‘History Of Rap Part 5’ with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, watch it here. This definitely won’t be part of his concert set!
Fresh off her British Female Solo Artist win at the BRITs last week, Ellie Goulding will be back in London on 9th March as part of a three-date arena tour, due to the massive demand for her shows in the UK. The “Burn” singer has kept her name at the top of the music charts with a string of hits off her latest album, Halcyon Days, and I’ve had her latest single, “Goodness Gracious,” stuck in my head for a week now! She’s got such a unique voice, infectious hit songs, and she seems to be winning awards left and right these days, so this is definitely a concert you won’t want to miss. (For tickets, go here.)
Beyonce is preparing for a six-show stint in London, performing “The Mrs. Carter Show” on 28th Feb. as well as March 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6. The mega-diva recently released her groundbreaking iTunes visual album with a music video for every song, so we’re expecting to hear her new hits “XO” and “Drunk in Love” during the show, fingers crossed! She gave an incredible halftime performance at last year’s Super Bowl before kicking off the North American leg of her tour, and now that she’s making the hop across the pond, we couldn’t be more excited to see what the self-appointed “Queen Bey” has in store for us! (For tickets, go here.). And watch her brand new video for single ‘Partition’ right here.
Of course, there are plenty more concerts to see besides these three! Here are some of the other hot tickets this spring:
– Drake on March 24, 25 and 26
– The Wanted on 27th March
– Tinie Tempah on 30th March
– Miley Cyrus on 6th May
