Fighting for the advancement of gender equality across the world, International Women’s Day 2019 is a call for action under the slogan #BalanceForBetter.

Gigantic is proud to join with International Women’s Day in celebration of the progress which has led to the advancement of rights, furthering the possibilities and achievements of women around the globe. With that in mind, here is our recommended list of the most excellent female performing acts and theatre shows telling the stories of strong women we currently offer tickets for.



Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera sure has come a long way! First impressing audiences at local talent competitions as a child with her audacious singing voice which seemed almost too big for her young age, she soon joined the ranks of The Micky Mouse Club where she appeared on television screens across the States. However, it was the release of the single ‘Genie In A Bottle’ which would propel her to international fame and announce the arrival of one of the best-selling music acts – ever!

Gigantic is very pleased to be able to now offer you tickets for Aguilera’s arena tour on which she will be playing some of the biggest British stages including The SSE Hydro at Glasgow, The SSE Arena – Wembley in London, Manchester Arena and Resorts World Arena at Birmingham during November.

Christina Aguilera tickets are currently available.



Jess Glynne

When she isn’t teaming up with such amazing acts as David Guetta, Years & Years, Rudimental and Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne is busy topping the charts all around the world with her inspiring take on pop and house.

Always In Between’ is her latest album which shot straight to No. 1 upon release in October of last year, firmly confirming her as one of the hottest British acts right now. She tours extensively this summer but tickets are already selling out fast so make sure you get yours now!

Bikini Kill

We couldn’t really create a list of gigs and shows for International Women’s Day and not mention Bikini Kill! The original rebel girls brought their riot to the world in the form of provocative live shows, performance art, radical speeches and fiery fanzines to become one of the most influential punk bands of the 90’s and beyond.

They have made the surprise decision to reform and play two nights at O2 Academy Brixton proving that they are as vital as ever.

Pop anthems are joined by stunning choreography for a wild comic ride.
