Speaking of the tour Elton John says “The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will take us to many places that have meant a lot to me over the last fifty years. To celebrate some of the incredible moments we’ve shared with my fans over the years will be wonderful. These shows will be very emotional, and a lot of fun.”

Kicking off in the U.S. in September, the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour has already been greeted with a wealth of praise from critics and fans alike. The three-year tour will consist of more than 300 shows across five continents, hitting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia before reaching its conclusion in 2021.

By the end of this week, over half a million fans will already have witnessed the tour. These dates mark the superstar’s last-ever tour and the end of half a century on the road for one of pop culture’s most enduring performers, who was recently named as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history, having logged 67 entries, including nine No. 1s and 27 Top 10s.

Elton’s new stage production will take his fans on a musical and highly visual journey spanning a 50-year career of hits like no one has ever seen before.

It may be two years away but we are SO excited to see the legend in concert.


The Spice Girls have FINALLY confirmed they are reuniting for a major stadium tour across the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, Victoria Beckham won’t be joining the girls on tour.

Posh Spice may not be there to shimmy around arenas to Wannabe, but there’s no doubt the tour will be a massive success.

The band announced the tour with a news bulletin style video.

Emma Bunton, Mel C, Geri Halliwell and Mel B will perform across the UK with a string of stadium concerts scheduled in for June 2019.

The popstars will perform in Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Bristol and London, and rumour has it they’ll be announcing a world tour very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for additional dates.

Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, November 10 at 10:30 am and you’d Wannabe quick because there’s no doubt they’ll be swiped up.

The Gods of Rock have listened to our prayers.

After selling out their Whelan's show, which is scheduled for Thursday, 6 December, The Blizzards have now announced a SECOND show for Friday 7 December. Thank the Lord for that.

The Blizzards vs Tebi Rex are releasing the second single I Need A Win from their upcoming full-length album next week, and lucky for us it will be available across all digital platforms.


A post shared by The Blizzards (@theblizzardsie) on

Diverse Irish hip-hop youngsters Tebi Rex collaborate with rockers The Blizzards to create one of the biggest feel-good tracks of the year.

The band have come back with a bang in 2016, now bringing us their first studio album in a decade, due this Autumn. WE CANNOT WAIT.

It's sure to be unreal, so you'd be mad to miss them at Whelan's showing us why they remain one of Ireland's biggest bands.


A post shared by The Blizzards (@theblizzardsie) on

I Need A Win  is out everywhere now.

Tickets on sale now – €22.90 from Ticketmaster

Doors open at 8.00pm, and the gig is for over 18s only.

GET 'EM ASAP, FOLKS. We all want to stare at Bressie while listening to sweet sweet tunes, let's get real.


 All Tvvins are one of Ireland's biggest new bands, making a steady rise since 2016 with the release of their debut album llVV, which debuted at number two on the Irish charts.

They are now returning to the stage to anticipate the unveiling of their second album Just to Exist, giving us a taste with their newest single Hell of a Party.

The track was chosen as 2FM's Tune of the Day, supported by John Kennedy at Radio X and added to some of Spotify and Deezer's most popular playlists. No biggie…

Judging by how UNREAL their most recent tune is, the album is going to blow everyone away. Keep a sharp eye out for these boys, the duo are definitely going places.

The duo are stepping up a gear, announcing support from talented Dublin singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson for their major headline gig at the National Stadium Dublin.

The band plan on evolving their fresh and fluid style of creativity, pushing the boundaries of their sound whenever they can.

The band, comprising of Conor Adams and Lar Kaye, are signed with Warner Music, and have also decided to gift us with another forthcoming album track ‘Warm Crush’ as well as a skeletal acoustin version of Infinite Swim. 

These lads just keep on giving.

Infinite Swim was produced by All Tvvins' friend and collaborator, the amazing James Vincent McMorrow, so it's sure to be a banger...

The album process was kick-started by McMorrow, who contacted the boys about working on a new track together. 'Twould be hard to say no.


A post shared by All Tvvins (@alltvvins) on

It’s a heady cocktail of taut, muscular funk which maintains the typically anthemic All Tvvins sound, adding a Prince-style solo.

“There’s a definite salute to Talking Heads as well,” says Lar Kaye. “It just felt right.”

Adams describes their next album as “a snapshot of where we were, what we were going through and where we hope to go next.”

The momentum is rising for the band with their forthcoming second album and a headline show at The National Stadium, don't miss out on a chance to see the duo live.

The gig with support from Sorcha Richardson will take place on Saturday 13 April 2019. Tickets from €27 on sale Tuesday 6 November at 9am, doors open 7pm.

There’s no doubt fans were overjoyed to hear that Westlife are back together again. Shane, Kian, Nicky and Mark made the long-awaited announcement on Instagram earlier this month and have been posting photos together ever since.

Their latest post has sent fans into a frenzy. The foursome posted the same black and white selfie to their Instagram accounts.

All four members captioned the snap: “Tonight 8.30pm.”

Naturally, fans of the boyband started freaking out and flooded the comment section with questions.


A post shared by Shane Filan (@shanefilanofficial) on

“Is it performance or new songs?!”

“Please let it be a new single!!”

“Does this mean what I think it is? Dates for Westlife?”


A post shared by Kian Egan (@kianegan) on

If you take a closer look at the snap of the Swear It Again singers you’ll notice it was taken in Croke Park, Dublin.

Does this mean what we hope it does? Westlife will play their first comeback show at Croke Park? The place where the lads gave their final performance six years ago?


A post shared by Westlife (@westlife) on

Let’s hope so.

Keep your eyes peeled on Westlife’s social media account at 8.30 pm tonight. Let the countdown commence.

Kylie Minogue has announced that she won't be taking to the stage in both Dublin and Belfast tonight and tomorrow as part of her Golden Tour and our hearts are broken.

The pop legend was due to perform at Dublin’s 3Arena tonight and Belfast’s SSE Arena tomorrow night, although she has now bowed out of both performances due to a throat infection.


She took to Twitter to let her fans know the bad news writing,  “I’m so sorry to let you know that I can’t do tonight’s Dublin or tomorrow’s Belfast shows.''

She continued, 'I’ve been treating everything possible to be well enough to perform for you but a throat infection has led to vocal strain.”

Although, the good news is that she is working out rescheduling the dates.

“I promise I’ll be back as soon as possible and at 100%. (The Guinness will be on me!). We’re working on rescheduling and more details will follow. I’m so, so sorry to let you down and thank you for understanding.''

Fans were quick to offer their well wishes and tell Kylie not to be in a hurry back.

One wrote, ''health is more important just please make sure you are ok before you come back to DUBLIN and Belfast hope you get better soon.''

While another said, ''Kylie you're not letting anyone down get well soon we love you millions.''

Feel better soon, we love ya.


In the wake of Mac Miller's untimely death, his family and the Pittsburgh Foundation have created an arts fund in his name – and the first event on their agenda is a huge music show to honour the late artist. 

The fund will support budding artists who need resources to fulfil their dreams. 

'In honour of Malcolm’s commitment to the arts, The Mac Miller Circles Fund will provide programming, resources and opportunities to youth from underserved communities, helping them recognise their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building.'

The show, called 'Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life' is set for Wednesday, October 31 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, and the line up is stellar.

Action Bronson, Anderson.Paak, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, John Mayer, Miguel, Schoolboy Q, SZA, Thundercat, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, Vince Staples and more soon to be announced are all due to perform.

'The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,' Mac Miller's mother told Variety. 


A post shared by Mac (@macmiller) on

'His father, brother and I are beyond thankful to everyone who is working to make this concert happen along with every fan and every friend for continuing to support Malcolm and his vision.'

'He was a caring, loving human with a smile that could light up the sky and a soul that was out to make the world a kinder place and the MMCF will continue to do just that.'

Tickets will be available from Ticketmaster on October 5th. 


After news of Westlife's reunion shook the internet, reports are flooding in that the iconic 90s boyband will be taking to the stage in Croke Park. 

After calling it a day in 2012, the boy band have reportedly signed a new deal with Universal.

The Irish Daily Mail reports that Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan are set to head off on a UK and Ireland tour in 2019. 


A post shared by WESTLIFE (@westlife) on

The tour, reported to take place in the summer months, will end with a behemoth performance at Dublin's Croke Park Stadium.

The band previously played two shows in the GAA venue on their farewell tour in 2012 before calling it a day on their music careers. 

'Boyzone are wrapping up their career playing small shows and racecourses, so this (Westlife's) comeback tour has to be bigger and better than anything they have done before,' a source told the newspaper.


A post shared by WESTLIFE (@westlife) on

However, there is one catch – former member Brian McFadden won't be joining the reunion. 

The band are expected to announce the tour next month. 


Gavin James could quite possibly be the soundest guy we know.

Not only is he hosting a free open-air concert, he's doing it in honour of the late Irish legend, Dolores O’Riordan. 

The singer is expected to play the Cranberries' Glow and Linger during his free gig, next weekend.


A post shared by The Cranberries (@thecranberries) on

If you want to get in on the action, you need to be around Friday, September 21.

Gavin will be performing at the National Museum of Ireland Collins Barracks, as part of Culture Night.

You'll bop along to two hours of tunes and will see some of Ireland's best artists, both established and emerging. – So who knows, you could discover a new fave song.

If you thought things couldn't get better, you're wrong.

There are no tickets (or hassle) for the concert, AND Dublin Bus are running free buses every 20 mins from Dublin City Centre (Aston Quay, USIT Office) to the National Museum of Ireland Collins Barracks (Route C) from 6 to 11 pm.

If you're still on the fence about going, from 4 to 8 pm there will be a wide range of free ticketed live radio recordings, talks and performances.

This includes a section called Banter – Culture & Me, which will feature Jim Carroll along with three badass Irish women bosses.

Tropical Popical founder and co-host of Keep On Repealin' podcast, Andrea Horan will join Jim between 4.30 to 5 pm to chat all things culture.

Ivana Bacik will take the next slot and this one not to miss as Ivana has been a senator in Seanad Eireann for the University of Dublin since July 2007, and is also the Reid Professor of Criminal Law, Criminology and Penology at Trinity College Dublin. 

Finally, Jim will be having the craic with Emilie Pine who is the best-selling author of Notes To Self (Tramp Press) and an Associate Professor in Modern Drama at UCD.

This culture night will have you seriously spoilt for choice.

Alternatively, you can listen in with Sean Rocks on RTÉ Radio 1’s Arena from 8pm – 10pm. 

It's a great time to be Irish.

May the odds be ever in your favour.



First off, no this article isn't from 1996 – The Backstreet Boys were set to play a gig last night.

Unforch, severe weather conditions caused a structure to collapse, injuring fourteen concert-goers.

Luckily, the fans were treated by emergency personnel and then taken to local hospitals.

According to Billboard, group member Kevin Richardson revealed in a tweet what had happened as that the band were set to perform at the outdoor pavilion at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville. 

"Hey folks! Severe weather, high winds and rain just passed thru here in Thackerville, OK. Emergency crews are on the scene as tent collapsed and some folks who were seeking shelter were injured. Waiting to determine damage to our stage and production," he wrote.

Fellow band member Nick Carter also tweeted, ''waiting and praying for our fans that were injured. If we can perform we're ready to go. But safety is first."

According to KOCO-TV, the incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. local time and people were evacuated due to an oncoming storm. 

However, the fan injuries occurred when "something happened inside" the pavilion. 

WinStar said in a statement released to ET that, ''all patrons in the area were asked to move and to seek shelter from the storm. However, about 150 patrons who were standing in line for the Backstreet Boys concert did not heed staff's warning … the storm hit and knocked over the concert entrance trusses with 70-80 mile an hour winds and heavy rain. 14 people were treated at the scene and then transported to local hospitals. Two have already been released."

Dallas reporter Allison Harris of Dallas shared a video tweeted to her from someone at the concert from "right after it fell. Several people hurt including a young girl. Several fans spring to action including former army nurse who’s husband was hurt."

She also tweeted, "friend at the Backstreet Boys concert at Winstar Casino says an awning fell on people. She estimates 10 ambulances responded, paramedics took people out on stretchers."

Kevin later confirmed that the show would not be going ahead but he promised, ''keep your tickets because, Backstreet WILL BE BACK!''

Backstreet will be back, alright?
