More information on some of the events taking place throughout December:
Cirque Du Soleil LUZIA
- Date: Throughout February
- Venue: Royal Albert Hall
A spectacular venue for a spectacular show, this run at the Royal Albert Hall is the first time LUZIA is being performed from January right through to March to meet demand.
If you’ve never been to a Cirque Du Soleil show before, expect a mixture of incredible visuals projected all over the auditorium and acrobats performing moves you’ve never seen a body do before. LUZIA is based on South American folklore so expect a Latin influence in the performance.
- Date: 1st to 12th February
- Venue: London Palladium
No, you haven’t read that wrong; Madonna genuinely is performing at the Palladium. Coming off the back of the release of her fourteenth studio album Madame X, this residency at one of London’s most historic theatres is a show like no other.
It’s expected that she’ll perform the majority of the album, which is known for having a lot of Latin influenced music, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she pulled out a classic here and there.
More information is available on the London Palladium website here.
The Jonas Brothers
- Date: 2nd February
- Venue: The o2
Following the trend of boy bands coming back all grown up (akin to the likes of Take That, Busted and McFly) the resurrection of the Jonas Brothers has seen them release hits including Sucker and Only Human.
Now they come back to London for a massive show at the o2. Expect all the classic hits, a few surprises and maybe even a few of their solo hits thrown in for good measure.
Full ticket information is available from the o2 website here.
- Date: 21st and 22nd February
- Venue: The o2
You’d be hard-pressed to find a bigger pop-rock band hailing from the UK right now than The 1975. With all three album having headed straight to No1, and their first two albums certified platinum in the UK charts, it makes sense that they’d be taking over the o2 for not one but two nights back to back.
Expect a crowd that is just waiting to hear those first few chords of songs like Chocolate, Girls, Love Me and The Sound.
- Date: 23rd February
- Venue: Eventim Apollo
It’s quite hard to explain to someone who has never seen Babymetal before what the experience is like. The Japanese kawaii metal band really upend the experience of attending a metal gig, with their mixture of light pop lyrics and hard riffs working surprisingly well together.
Full ticket information can be found on the Eventim Apollo website here.
- Date: 24th February
- Venue: London Palladium
A mixture between a full orchestra performance and karaoke, Queen Symphonic is one of those live shows that actively encourages the audience to take part.
With a cast member from We Will Rock You mixing with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, they’ll run through Queen’s greatest hits with gusto. It’s one of the rare times you’ll see an orchestra knowing you won’t spend the night in your seat.
Ticket information for the event is available here.
- Date: 28th February
- Venue: Natural History Museum
Always fancied the idea of visiting museums but find you don’t learn much while you’re there? Why not have a different museum experience when you boogie to the silent disco at the Natural History Museum.
This now monthly event usually takes place on the last weekend of the month and is something of a hidden gem in the calendar. You can experience the museum after hours and switch between music from three different DJs.
Booking online is advised as the disco tends to sell out. Full information is available on the NHM website.
London Film and Comic-Con Expo (Spring)
- Date: 29th February – 1st March
- Venue: Olympia
An event so popular they now have it twice a year, the London Film and Comic-Con Expo is the chance for any pop culture aficionados to meet cast members from the likes of Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones and even Freddy Kruger.
You can see the entire guest list at the official website here.
