Last Night of the Proms (14 September)
Who hasn’t heard of the BBC Proms? A series of concerts from composers old and new over an eight-week period and performed live at the Royal Albert Hall. The Last Night of the Proms is a traditional celebration of all-things British. If you want to know the depth of feeling and fervour of the true Brit then there is no better way than experiencing the Last Night of the Proms.
The last night is broadcasted live to audiences around the UK and here at Hyde Park you can come to enjoy the spectacle without spending too much on a seat at the RAH. There is also an open-air concert hosted by Michael Ball which features music from the stage, rock, pop and classical. Bring something to sit on and get ready for a terrific firework finale.
Bonnie Tyler (18 September)
Still belting out her songs, Bonnie Tyler is unforgettable. Tickets for her show at the London Palladium are available from Ticketmaster. Her 1983 album Faster Than the Speed of Night reached Number One in the UK albums chart of that year. Her one-off concert is sure to include some of her favourites as well as some new material. Check London hotel offers for reduced prices of seats at theatres such as the Palladium.
Keane (28–29 September)
One of the UK’s most popular alternative rock bands is beginning a tour of the British Isles in the latter part of this year. The boys arrive at the Royal Albert Hall on the 28th September for a two-night gig which promises to be as awe-inspiring as anything that has come before. The tour follows the band’s release of the fifth full-length studio album Cause and Effect.
Keane is certain to play tracks from their new album but there will no doubt be a few old favourites thrown in for good measure. Tracks such as Bedshaped and Somewhere Only We Know are etched in the psyche of the British audience. But be quick. Keane’s following is massive, and fans are sure to want to buy tickets as quickly as possible. Don’t delay and visit Ticketmaster for more details.
Alice Cooper (10 October)
If hard rock is your thing then head for the O2 on the 10th October to see Alice Cooper in concert. Find out about ticket availability from the Ticketmaster website. The rock star – now into his 70s – just seems to keep on going, and has ample energy and enthusiasm to bring the Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back tour to the UK.
The London O2 is a venue like no other, but be sure to book soon since the tickets for this widely adored septuagenarian are selling fast. If you’re lucky enough to grab some tickets you’re in for a treat. Cooper’s stage shows are infamous for their slasher humour and spectacle.
Conor Maynard (24 October)
26-year-old singer Conor Maynard found his fame after uploading to YouTube videos of him singing popular music. Pretty soon recording artists were flocking to his door offering to sign him up. Since his first break when he was just 17 Maynard has released two studio albums. His first single “Can’t Say No” debuted at No.2 on the UK Singles Chart.
If that wasn’t enough Maynard is now on tour and visits the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in north London on the 24th October. Maynard has a huge following of fans so if you would like to see him perform you are going to have to be quick. Ticket details are available on Ticketmaster.
Camille O’Sullivan (1–2 November)
O’Sullivan’s second album was released in 2012 and her return to the stage at the Union Chapel in Islington London is very much anticipated by her fans. The French-Irish singer first became famous in her native Ireland but she has since claimed the world’s stage as her own. As well as gracing theatres with her unique style O’Sullivan played at Glastonbury in 2008, Edinburgh Fringe and London Feis in 2011.
O’Sullivan’s music is an eclectic mix of jazz and soul but her range is anything but set in its ways. Her A Capella songs are stunning in their depth and resonance, and O’Sullivan is as much at ease with whispering her songs with a piano accompaniment. Whatever your taste in music you will love the voice of Camille O’Sullivan, one you’ll remember even when you’re relaxing later at the Montcalm Hotel Spa.
Fever 333 (7 November)
Two years ago Jason Aalon Butler, Aric Improta and Stephen Harrison formed American rock band Fever 333. They have since released a debut EP and a full studio album called Strength in Numb333rs, which came out in January 2019.
In 2018 they received a Grammy nomination for a performance of Made in America. They arrive in the UK in the latter part of the year to play at various festivals around the country including some headline dates. Check ticket availability for their London gig at the O2 Forum, Kentish Town.
