My Ultimate Gig Wish List 2016

My Ultimate Gig Wish List 2016

Going to gigs are one of the most invigorating and exciting experiences in the world, so many good artists are doing gigs right now and here are a list of artists and bands that I would love to see live!

1) Drake

Drake is undeniably one of my favourite rappers in the world due to his versatility when he’s singing or rapping. He’s announced his new tour called Boy Meets World and he begins performing in the UK in January 2017.  His latest album, Views (2016), includes great tunes for example Hotline Bling, Controlla and One DanceViews received 245 million streams which took over the previous record of Beyonce’s Lemonade (2016). His first show in the UK is in Glasgow and you can find tickets and tour dates here.

2) Ariana Grande

Ariana released one of my favourite songs this year, Side To Side, featuring Nicki Minaj. I love the Caribbean influence of this song and I would love to hear Ariana and Nicki perform this live. I have been quite impressed with her latest singles, not only are they catchy but they display her beautiful vocals. The Dangerous Woman Tour is going to be her biggest European tour which starts in May 2017 in Stockholm, you can access tour dates and tickets here.

3) Craig David

7 Days by Craig David is one the most famous songs from the early 2000s and I have loved his comeback including his single Ain’t Giving Up, with British DJ Sigala, which is a great tune. Craig released his latest album, Following My Intuition (2016), last month. His album reached no.1 on the UK albums chart and this is his first no.1 album since he released Born to Do it in 2000. One of my closest friends went to his gig in the O2 and she said that it was amazing. It would be great to see this urban soul singer live, you can access tickets and tour dates here.

4) Coldplay

Coldplay are one of my favourite rock bands ever, I could list a number of songs I love by them which is why I would love to go to one of their gigs. Coldplay are known to have one of the best live shows with an amazing atmosphere of music and dancing. I’ve wanted to go to a Coldplay gig for quite a while but right now their doing their international tour in countries like Australia, New Zealand and Germany. If you’d like some more information on Coldplay’s tour dates click here.

5) UB40

The reason I put UB40 on this list is because they are an amazing British Reggae band that I’ve loved for a long time. Unfortunately, there aren’t many British Reggae singers/bands that have been brought to people’s attention and UB40 are one of the most successful reggae bands worldwide, selling over 70 million records. Some of my favourite songs by them include Red Red Wine, Can’t Help Falling In Love and I Got You Babe. They are having gigs in Reading, Blackburn and other cities, for more information click here.

6) Sigala

Sigala is one of my favourite house DJs and some of my favourite songs include Easy Love and Give Me Your Love, featuring John Newman. The atmosphere of being in a house/dance music gig would be electrifying which is one of the reasons why I want to see Sigala live. Sigala has gigs beginning in February and you can find more details here.

7) Maxwell and Mary J. Blige

I personally believe that Maxwell has the most beautiful and soulful voice on earth. The first time I heard Maxwell’s version of This Woman’s Work, originally by Kate Bush, on MTV unplugged, I really wanted to be one of the audience members hearing his delicate voice. Mary J. Blige is one of my old favourites and some of my favourite songs by her include Real Love, Family Affair and Don’t Mind. Maxwell and Mary J. Blige are going on a UK tour which begins at the O2.

8) Tom Odell

I would love to be up close in a small crowd, watching Tom Odell play the piano whilst singing one of my favourite songs by him, Another Love. I can imagine his gigs being more intimate than putting emphasis on stage lights and amazing graphics. If you’d like to see him live click here to buy your ticket.

This weeks songs are:

1) Beyoncé- Mine ft. Drake

Beyoncé (2013) was overall a great album and one of my favourite songs from that album is Mine featuring one of the worlds best rappers, Drake. Beyoncé talks about motherhood, relationships and marriage but also reassures her lover that he is forever her’s no matter what the tabloids and newspapers say about their relationship. Drake’s verse is centred around the fact that her still has feelings for this girl so he’s “running back” to her because there’s no one that can compare to her. Check out this song:

2) David Guetta – Lovers on the Sun

David-Guetta-Lovers-On-The-Sun-ft.-Sam-Martin.jpg

Lovers on the Sun is a country rock/house track in David Guetta’s sixth studio album, Listen (2014) featuring the vocals of the American singer Sam Martin. This song was inspired by western films and features similar progressive chord patterns as Daft Punk’s song, ‘Get Luck’. Lovers of the sun reached no.1 in the UK Singles chart in 2014 but reached no.3 in the US Dance Club songs. I really like the great vocals in this song and the awesome mix between country and EDM. Check out this song in the link below:

Till I’m gone is a hip-hop track by the British Rapper, Tinie Tempah, released in May 2011. This song is the second single released in the United States by Tinie Tempah after Written In The Stars. The American rapper Wiz Khalifa features in this track and the whole song is about a guy that leaves his girlfriend to become a rapper, which is his life long dream, but he tells her that he will return to her one day.
