Recently many music events have been postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus. Hopefully this year we will all be able to reunite and celebrate with music once again. If plans permit, of course, we will see the return of live shows, festivals and anticipated album releases.
Guns and roses, Dua Lipa, Laga Gaga and many more artists have re-scheduled their tours this year. But what else should we be excited about?
In the UK, it’s no different. If you are a music fan, you probably know that some of the biggest artists in the world still have plans to tour the UK at some point in 2021. Dua Lipa will be taking her Future Nostalgia tour on the road finally, beginning next September in Liverpool.
If you were missing one truly massive, maximalist pop show, then Lady Gaga will be only visiting once in 2021 – to re-stage The Chromatica Ball at Tottenham Stadium in July.
Rock idols Guns N’ Roses will be playing to huge shows in the UK following their celebrated comeback in 2016. They’re bringing their 2021 tour to Tottenham Stadium in London and Bellahouston Park in Glasgow in June.
Other big tours booked in 2021 include Steps’ 18-date arena tour in Nov/Dec, Diana Ross’ 10-date UK-wide Diamond Diana show in June/July, and more from Little Mix, Pussycat Dolls, Jessie Ware, Haim and Melanie C.
We also have the Brit Awards 2021. It has been announced however that the awards have been pushed back three months due to the pandemic. As it normally occurs in February, it will not be taking place until 11th May 2021!.
Hopefully, we will see the return of many festivals, like Reading and Glastonbury. As these festivals take place in the summer, we hope that everything will be back to normal so we can all celebrate music together.
Some artists have been releasing hints that they will be dropping new albums this year. Artists who have already confirmed albums for 2021 include Foo Fighters’ tenth album Medicine At Midnight (Feb 5), London Grammar’s California Soil (Feb 12) and Not Your Muse by BBC Sound of 2020 winner Celeste (Feb 26).
As it stands, it looks like we will be in for an exciting new year bringing us back to the norm!.
