KISS It’s bank holiday, and musical events are taking place across Birmingham - Slam Dunk, Pride, Anastasia at the Symphony Hall. And nearly 16,000 people are making their way to the Barclaycard Arena. All ages from small kids to grandparents, rockers, many wearing black T’s with tonight’s artists name emblazoned and some with the iconic faceprint, hair and a few in black spandex. To see a band with well over 40 years of delivering heavy metal in one of the most over-the-top performances you will every see. With a poignant nod to this week’s events, welcome all to the party, welcome to the world of KISS.

Foals FANTASTIC FOALS! Yannis Philippakis & his Foals are flying right now. The radio & media cannot get enough of their new album, ‘What Went Down’. After winning the NME ‘Best Album 2016’ & “smashing” Wembley a few nights before, I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation for a storming show. I was not let down! It was to be an exhibition of their versatility as they stride closer to confirmation as one of the UK’s best ever bands.

The Libertines The Libertines rocked into Birmingham Barclaycard arena as if it was no different from any of the smaller venues they had previously played, performing with the energy that was longed for during the ten years that passed before 'Anthems for Doomed Youth' emerged onto the scene late last year.

The Prodigy

Dear Keith, Maxim & Liam- THANK YOU! Thank you for making me feel so proud to be British at a time of uncertainty. The Prodigy are The Kings of Big Beat & this evening firmly established that view. The outreach that these guys possess reeks of grandeur. The crowd consisted of early teens to shameless OAPs all bouncing off the walls of The Barclaycard Arena to the sound of EDM royalty!

John Legend 2014 was quite a year for the 9 times Grammy winner Mr John Legend. A year in which he toured the world and saw his beautiful soulful love song ‘All Of Me’ become a Multi-platinum seller (12.3 million copies worldwide)! But that wasn’t enough for Mr Legend as in November of last year he announced that he’d be back in the UK in June/July 2015 for his biggest arena tour to date, and Birmingham welcomed him back with open arms!

McBusted Entering the Barclaycard Arena I was instantaneously met by a mass of nostalgic noughties crazed music fans, ecstatically awaiting the new pop rock and punk pop fusion band McBusted. The six piece have begun a hysteria with their Most Excellent Adventure Tour. Blackout set off an immensity of screams and with their infinite energy McBusted entered, pinging into position one by one from below the stage like they’d just landed onto the screen of an arcade game.
