From their indie days in the mid-nineties to the megastardom they enjoy today, the rise of Coldplay has been meteoric. They burst onto the scene and captured our hearts with melancholic anthem Yellow which rocketed their debut album Parachutes to #1 in the UK charts. Since that early release they have continued to dominate the charts with each subsequent album release hitting the hotspot.

Their latest album entitled A Head Full Of Dreams has continued their trend of reaching the coveted #1 and has already been certified double Platinum. Having already toured the new material across Latin America and Europe, they will headline Principality Stadium in Cardiff next July.

The ultimate boy band are back! Emerging from the late eighties to give a taste of what was to come the following decade, BROS were at the cutting edge of pop and were the first to hint at the possibilities for similar groups to come. The sharp image and hard hitting tunes all contributed to their bad boy image, cemented with such massive songs as Too Much, I Quit, Drop The Boy, I Owe You Nothing and When Will I Be Famous?

Twin brothers Matt and Luke Goss celebrate their return to the spotlight with a huge live performance at The O2 in August of 2017 for what will be one of the most important pop music events of the year.

Blackberry Smoke

With the impending release of new Blackberry Smoke album Like An Arrow, the sensational Southern Rock band have announced a springtime tour in the UK to promote the new material. Make sure you see them when they hit a stage near you.

The Alabama boys rose to the fore in 2004 with their debut album Bad Luck Ain’t No Crime, followed some years later by second album Little Piece Of Dixie. However, their breakthrough came with the release of the albums The Whippoorwill and Holding All The Roses which saw Blackberry Smoke dominate the Country Charts in the States, with the new album expected to do even better.
