Concerts Galore #3 !

So I FINALLY got to see Rihanna on her LOUD tour after however many dates she managed to throw out there AND sell out, I got to see her final performance in Manchester, which was unbelievably amazing!

Calvin Harris supported and put on an amazing set where I literally felt like I was in a night club! Then the lady herself came out and blew us all away with her incredible voice, body, moves, swag...pretty much everything. I was personally impressed with her choice of songs as she sang all the stuff from her LOUD album (bar one song which wasnt THAT great) and all of her old stuff which I LOVE.

Not only that she had some pretty amazing outfits as well. This was a personal favourite...

As you can see she has also swapped her red locks for some blonde bob which she rocked! Before hand I had heard that the show had been slated for her being so x-rated and bad use of language. I was curious to find out more as I think that's a little bad of her considering her age range of fans.

Anyway, she wasnt as extreme as I thought she would be (it was said she had toned it down a bit) although she was still super sexual on stage, when she grabbed a girl from the audience and grinded on top her (wow). Other than that it was pretty much what you would expect!

The last song was obviously 'We Found Love' which was a personal favourite and had me dancing hard! check out this clip...

Amazing !

Concerts Galore ! #2

So after having the pleasure of Katy Perry, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to go and see Bruno Mars perform at the Manchester Apollo two days later. I had never seen him live before, however judging from his recent guest star X Factor performance, I already had high expectations, that were definitely fulfilled.

Even though it was a much smaller venue than the M.E.N arena, I enjoyed the intimacy of the concert as I felt he could interact more with the audience. Although, I'm pretty sure he could fill the M.E.N based on the number of screaming girls next to me asking him to marry them...

Bruno certainly delivered throughout the show, not only with his new songs, old songs and classic UK number ones such as 'Beautiful Girls' and 'Just the way you are', but his cheeky smile and sense of humour seemed to keep everyone hooked throughout.

I don't know what it is about performers but I always enjoy watching them joke around on stage with other members of the band, I suppose its a way of showing that they are actually enjoying what they do and want to be there as much as you do to have fun.

Definitely worth the money, I'm sure he will hit the bigger arenas next time round!

Concerts Galore ! #1

Last week I had the opportunity to see three concerts, which I can safely say were all amazing. Firstly, Katy Perry for Halloween was definitely a treat, and after seeing her twice before (same tour-I'm a bit obsessed) she still managed to deliver an amazing performance.

Me & my friend Becky at the California Dreams Tour!

Katy Perry in action !

Fortunately for KP knows how to make an audience laugh and her humour was on top form, asking "Why is it, English people insisted dressing up as 'sluts' for Halloween?" Welcome to Manchester ! I know people have doubted her singing ability during liver performances from Xfactor live shows in 2010, where she was slated. But after seeing her sing live three times, I can only commend her for her outstanding performances and spot on vocal ability.

Spur of the moment: Mary Portas !

So walking through town, there seemed to be a lot going on in the Clarks store in Manchester's Market Street. Not a regular customer of Clarks I decided to be nosey and ask the men in suits what all the fuss was over. I was told there was a champagne reception for Mary Portas launching her new shoe range here in the flesh. They had me at champagne.

Mary Portas is such a genius woman, fashion/retail expert, journalist and very good at what she does, and her channel 4 show truly showed us what she was capable was quite exciting! So finally bustling through the crowd, keeping tight grasp of my champagne flute I managed to get to the lady herself quickly ask a question, and even get a snap.

I asked her why she chose Clarks to launch her shoe range; "Clarks is such a successful and re-knowned company, where their customers are loyal to the brand". To which I thought she is quite right. I know loads of people who go to Clarks for the good quality of shoe, whether its fashionable or not. You may pay a little more for a pair of school shoes but you are guaranteed that they will last a lot longer than the ones from the market stall.

After that I was pushed out the way for the next lot of wannabe fashionistas and budding journalists to get a glimpse. Overall a very nice lady who knows what she is talking about!
