No – not a tribute to Abba’s music men Bjorn and Benny, but a great big thank you to the folks at the O2 arena who have scheduled a stellar performance schedule that will see 2010 end with a bang.
With acts including JLS *scream!!*, Kings of Leon, Faithless, Shakira, Gorrliaz, Peter Andre and the Scissor Sisters scheduled to perform in December – not to forget Kylie, Westlife, Barry Manilow, Boyzone and the X-factor Live Tour in early 2011 – there’s truly something for everyone this winter, at London’s O2.
And with tickets just about to go on sale – just in time for an early Christmas present too *hint hint, mother dearest* – now is the best time to check out our hotel and ticket packages and pick your favourites before they sell out.
Get booking now, and join me (hopefully!) in the front row (fingers crossed!) at my favourites:
My tummy is already back-flipping at the thought of gorgeous frontman (and backflip ninja!) Aston Merrygold. As a fan of the boys since their X Factor days I’ve been thrilled to see them going from strength-to-strength with chart topping singles including “Beat Again”, “Everybody in Love” and “The Club Is Alive (with the sound of music)”. And I for one will be screaming and swooning with the best of them in a bid to catch the boys’ attention when they headline the O2 throughout December and January 2010.
Having spent much of the 90’s wishing I was (the then, very muscular) Peter Andre’s mysterious girl, even I have to admit that the former Mr. Katie Price is my favourite guilty pleasure. I shall be taking my mum (his second biggest fan!) to see Peter sing his new material and old favourites that will hopefully include “Mysterious Girl” at the O2 in December 2010.
Kings of Leon
Bound to have the crowd fired up with anthems including “Sex is on fire “, American rockers the Kings of Leon will set the O2 stage alight in December 2010, where I will be doing my very best Jamie “Afro” Archer impression in honour of my very favourite reality TV show audition (excepting Gareth’s, obviously. I /do/ love Mr. Gates…) and singing my heart out to the chorus line.
I will be perfecting Westlife’s trademark stool-sit-key change-stand routine over cereal at my breakfast bar, each morning, to make sure that I’m power ballad ready by the time <a href=” http://www.superbreak.com/events/event-22.htm”Westlife take to the O2 stage in March 2011. Mark! Nicky!! Kian!!! Shane!!!! *swoons!*
Since winning our hearts as one half of soap golden couple “Scott and Charlene” the pint-sized phenomenon has sold a whopping 68 million records to secure her title as the princess of pop. Overdraft permitting (I should be so lucky!), I will be among the very first to do the locomotion, whip out a pair of gold ‘spinning around’ hot-pants and readily admit that I just can’t get Kylie out of my head as Kylie returns to the O2 in April 2011.
