There is something extremely special about seeing an artist live in concert for the first time—especially when you've been wanting to see them for a while. This was the case for me on Monday, July 8th, 2019. I saw Shawn Mendes in concert that night, and it was incredible. He was incredible.
On Sunday July 7, it had been exactly three years since NCT 127 promised to “wake up this world.” And, after a concert packed full of energy, raw talent and uncompromising craftsmanship at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley, any suggestions of delusions of grandeur have truly been cast aside. It was a night to remember and an evening that proved that the nine active members didn’t just wake the world up, but put it on notice.
As an English person who loves America, there is no better way to spend Independence Day than attending a Country concert. The modern day Queen of Country Music, Carrie Underwood, finished off her UK tour this week with a show at Wembley arena, an honour for many artists. The tour took has taken her all across the country, including a set on the main stage, at one of the world's most famous festivals, Glastonbury. UK Country act The Shires opened for Carrie; many were disappointed that she didn't bring over her US opening acts, girl bands Maddie & Tae, and Runaway June, but The Shires have a large following in the UK and had a good turnout despite this.
There are many people on my concert bucket list, and P!NK has always been right at the top. Never have I heard better things about an artists live performances, and to witness it firsthand was better than I could have ever imagined.
What a night! I thought I was going to die, but both these musicians brought me back to life after a long work day.
While recorded music has made the overall experience even more memorable and wholesome, we believe that nothing competes with a good session of some rocking live music. It is through these live concerts that we have had some of the most memorable and melodious memories from music.
As a lover of many bands, singers, and music genres, I listen to a rather eclectic mix. My music collection contains everything from reggae, to rock 'n' roll, to metal, to easy listening.
Let me start by saying, there is no other music venue in the world like the Royal Albert Hall. It's 100 plus year history is so present in every inch of its proximity. All and any genre of music can fill the auditorium and sound incredible, but there is just something about Country music at the RAH that makes it go right through you. In my opinion, the only other style that can match the sound there is classical. On Friday night, Maren Morris played to a crowd of over 5,000 fans, of which I think you would struggle to find someone who didn't enjoy it.
As we start to lose our Rock and Roll heroes, last night at the PNC Arts Center, we said good bye to a true rock legend. Robert Clark Seger, from the Detroit, Michigan area has been around Rock and Roll since the early 60s. I personally have never seen the PNC Arts Center so crowded for any concert (I have been going their since 1980).
In an earlier article, I put Take That as one of the music acts that I would love to see live. This month I managed to cross one of them off my list. Take That started out in the early 90s as one of the biggest boybands. My aunt, who I lived with at the time, has a big collection of memorabilia belonging to acts of the 90s. There was no escape from hits like "Could It Be Magic" and "Back For Good." Fortunately for me, I was also a fan of the band.
Let me start by saying, Milano was never on my bucket list, but seeing George Ezra was. So when his European tour dates fell around my birthday, I figured why not make a weekend out of it?
The most emotional performance of the night came when soloist James Williams performed the soulful "Sweet Communion." The passion and conviction that Williams had in his performance was worth more than the price of admission.
