I had a great time again! I don't think the line up was quite as strong and I stayed off the island this year so was a different experience but still completely brilliant!

I saw 21 Pilots at the Greek the other night. I think I've seen them 5 or 6 times. They put on an incredible show. From a room with maybe a hundred people, to the Troubadour, to the Greek in LA. I can't say enough about these guys. I see maybe 80 shows a year and these guys are in my top five of past few years. See them if you get a chance.

I've started to keep the tickets. Unfortunately i didn't 'collect' them before Bruno Mars' concert so i'm missing a very few, NW 2012 being one of them, would have loved to still having them :oops:

Best concert so far was Within Temptation in 2014. My bf slept during the concert though, so i think it was his least favorite concert :lol:
My least favorite ones were both by Madonna. Let's see if Justin Bieber can top this.

Alexandra Burke & Olly Murs
The first concert I had ever been to. Both were great but Burke was my favourite singer at the time.

Summertime Ball
Usher, Jason Derulo, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, JLS, Rihanna, Scouting for Girls, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke, Chipmunk, Dizzee Rascal, will.i.am and Florence Welch.

The Wanted
During a little boy band phase when I was a couple years younger me and my friend went to see the Wanted. It was actually a great show and they performed all the hits. The Vamps and Elyar Fox were supporting - both of whom were quite good. Stayed around after and got to meet three of the members.

The Vamps
Again with the same friend. This was good but we were definitely not as close to the stage. The performance was great and at the time I loved that album so.

Tinashe
Went to the Birmingham Institute which is kind of like a club set out? This was honestly incredible. Her voice was impeccable and her dance moves were so great too. She did all of my favourite songs except for Feels Like Vegas. Bated Breath was probably best. I had gotten the meet and greet so I got to meet her beforehand and she was such a sweetheart.

Ariana Grande
This was probably the shortest concert I had been to (just over an hour). It was just off the back of My Everything and oh my god her voice was amazing. I had never fully appreciated it before hearing it live. I loved all of the setlist and the costume changes - this was a great one.

Mary J Blige
Wow - Mary was amazing. She did all of the hits from 1991 onwards including my favourites (Be Without You and Family Affair). This was after The London Sessions so she did some of the tracks off of that as well. She did the typical crazy Mary Mom dancing and her voice was great. We were really close so this was incredible.

Beyoncé
This was a surprise! My parents had took me to london and when we got to Wembley they told me we were seeing Beyoncé! This is probably the best concert I had been to. The stage layout, the atmosphere, the stadium, the dancing, the costumes etc. My favourite bit was when Hold Up turned into Coundown! It was probably one of the best nights ever getting to see my favourite artist since I was like 4 live.

Rihanna
I saw this with my best friend and she walked past us about a meter ahead. This was incredible. The whole swing for Sex With Me and the encore songs. This was incredible. It was an amazing song choice of most of my favourites and it honestly was so great. Her voice was great and you could tell it was live - again I didn't appreciate how good it was until I saw her live. The encore was the best bit because when Kiss it Better came on I was like screaming along because it's my favourite Rih song ever. Big Sean and DJ Mustard (the support acts) were actually amazing too. They really got the crowd going.

Swim Deep
My best friend had a ticket to see them and no one to go with so I went with her and it was actually really great. I nearly got caught in a mosh pit though and someone tickled me in order to push in front of us but it was actually great.

NAO
Wow. This was an amazing concert. Really I've been lucky to not have been to a bad concert. Her voice was incredible and she was so happy and organic. I was close and singing along and she pointed to me several times which was cool. Her support was Jorja Smith who was also amazing. The best support act I've seen who isn't established already.

Tesla is actually skipping my town, but they just came here to a smaller venue so probably too much overlapping.

I've seen Madonna, Celine, Shania, BSB and Imagine Dragons in concert. All in the last few years, all fantastic.
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.
