Midtown Festival Announce Spectacular Lineup

21st June 2018 | Category: Concerts

Midtown has announced the lineup for this year’s edition of Midtown Festival and all we can say it is pretty spectacular.

Fans would have the opportunity to listen to their favourite artists rocking out Atlanta’s Piedmont Park this fall. Tickets for the festival can be found here.

Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Imagine Dragons and Fall Out Boy will headline the festival so brush up on their most famous singles and get ready to sing-along. American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer will definitely add some value to the festival considering the fact his 2018 album Damn became the first non-classical and non-jazz album to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music.

Thirty Seconds To Mars are currently kicking off their summer tour but will make a stop in Georgia to take part in this festival. First Aid Kit is reemerging after putting out a new album for the first time in four years in January. Some of the other big names that will make an appearance include Foster the People, Portugal, The Man, Gucci Mane, Khalid and Rainbow Kitten Surprise.  Smaller names making an appearance include Maggie Rogers who recently released a new single, Yuno, who just released their debut album after signing to Sub Pop, and Two Feet, a solo project by New York musician Bill Dress.

“Music Midtown is one of Atlanta’s greatest traditions and Georgia’s largest music festival. This year’s lineup and experience represents our city,” Live Nation Atlanta President Peter Conlon said in a news release. “We started this festival 25 years ago. It was the first of its kind, and it has been exciting to watch it grow with Atlanta.”

The Revivalists, Kacey Musgraves, Sylvan Esso, Børns, Billie Eilish,Bazzi, Awolnation, Chromeo, Butch Walker,K.Flay, Arizona, Twin Shadow, Robert DeLong, lovelytheband, Saint Jhn, Black Pistol Fire, Sir, The Aces, Mattiel, Arthur Buck and Berklee College of Music will also perform this year and try to repeat the 2017 success when Bruno Mars, Future, Blink-182, DuaLipa, Wiz Kalifa and Mumford & Sons blew our minds with their fantastic performances and attracted more than 70,000 visitors.

Grab your festival gear and head to Atlanta on 15 and 16 September because Midtown plans to be better than ever.

Two-day pass can be purchased here.

BTS Tours USA as Ticket Prices Hit Roof

18th June 2018 | Category: Concerts

The Korean boy band BTS exceeded all expectations when their price tickets hit the roof due to the enormous demand.

Tickets for their Love Yourself Tour are the most expensive in the stateside secondary market for this year’s summer. Their ticket price has surpassed the norm, for both western and Korean acts, and is in a level of demand beyond of any other artist touring in 2018. VIP floor tickets are selling for over $8,000 a pair. Really a mind-blowing sum!

Tickets for all BTS dates can be found here.

They are hitting 5 U.S. cities with 14 dates including Los Angeles, Oakland, Fort Worth, Chicago and Newark as well as Hamilton, Ontario in Canada before they head to Europe. The European run will consist of seven nights in four cities London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam.

According to secondary no-free ticket marketplace TickPick, the average ticket to BTS’S tour costs $478.98. Just in comparison, the second best selling tickets are for Britney Spears $352.92, Pearl Jam $318.36, Elton John $286.17, Andrea Bocelli $279.01 and The Eagles with $259.98. Tickets for some most popular artists like Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift cost under $200. It seems like the frenzy is huge for the Korean boy band.

BTS’s popularity has increased significantly in the last year, yet they are only touring in six North American cities. The limited number of shows combined with high demand leads to increased ticket prices,” explains Jack Slingland, director of client relations at TickPick, in a statement.

BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean band formed in 2013. They made a huge success with their first two albums 2 Cool 4 Skool and Wings and scoped various awards. Their tracks “Love Yourself: Her”, “DNA” and “Mic Drop” all entered Billboard Hot 100.

BTS had a record-breaking May 2018, becoming the first ever Korean act to top the Billboard 200 album chart with their third full album, Love Yourself: Tear, and now in June they became the hottest ticket of the summer concert season.

BTS had earned a spot in the 2018’s edition of Guinness World Records for having “the world’s most Twitter engagements for a music group”. The band had sold over seven million albums worldwide and ranked number one on Forbes Korea Power Celebrity list for 2018, a list ranking South Korea’s most powerful and influential celebrities.

Obtain your tickets and get ready for an amazing experience.

Ladies, we have some pretty awesome news so you better prep up for the most exciting show you’ve seen so far!

Magic Mike Live is coming to London this November and you better hurry up and grab your tickets on time because they are selling fast.

After a group of Magic Mike Live dancers performed a routine at the Britain’s Got Talent final on 3 June, Channing Tatum announced the show is coming to London and the crowd just lost their minds.

“These guys that you just saw perform here are from my show Magic Mike Live. But, the thing is, they’re not from the Vegas production. They are from the London production,” the 38-year-old actor told the audience. “That’s right! Magic Mike Live is coming to London at the Hippodrome Casino in November. So get your seats before they’re gone.”

Magic Mike Live will kick off at the Hippodrome Casino in London’s Leicester Square in November and it will be a smash hit. In the first hour of the box office, the show sold $1.8 million worth of tickets so you better hurry up.

Tatum is co-directing the show that offers an updated take on male stripper performances. Full of dance routines and acrobatics, Magic Mike Live is a refreshing show you just can’t miss. The production team new that the show is a good idea considering the success movies made but they didn’t expect such huge reaction at all.

Although Channing Tatum worked on the show, it’s not clear yet whether he will make an official appearance during any of the performances. He shot some promotional photos in Piccadilly Circus and joked about him getting into shape.

“If I ever get in shape again then I’ll definitely do it,” he said. “I got to do a movie that’ll make me get in shape again and then I’ll do it. I would love to come to London. If I dance in Vegas, I’m definitely going to dance here.”

Magic Mike Live Las Vegas production was an instant success ever since it debuted in March 2017 and we expect the same from the London production. So, you need to get as many stacks of dollar bills as possible and book a trip to Las Vegas or London to enjoy this awesome show?!
