Music-loving London is the perfect place to be if you’re looking for a great new gig to attend this year, with plenty of variety providing a little something for every taste. Here are six top gigs you should know about in 2019…
O2 Academy Brixton / 10th February
Indie favourites Bastille are touring the UK this year, and their February gig at the 02 Academy in Brixton promises a fantastic evening’s entertainment for music fans. This great venue is ideal for the guitar-led tracks championed by the band, and makes the perfect gig to attend early in 2019.
Brit Floyd Tribute Show
Budweiser Gardens / 3rd April
For those who didn’t get to see Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ on tour first time round, this is the next best thing – a recreation in celebration of the iconic album’s initial release 40 years ago. Whether you’re a Pink Floyd fan or simply have an appreciation of the classics, this is great fun for those staying in London, and would make a fantastic evening out after a day of pampering yourself at the Chilworth Hotel Paddington Spa.
Royal Albert Hall / 13th May
With a career spanning several decades, Eric Clapton has been delighting audiences with his solo shows for many years, and this May event at the Royal Albert Hall is sure to be no different. The popular venue has hosted plenty of big stars and can now add Clapton to this impressive history.
Spice Girls Reunion Tour
Wembley Stadium / 13th – 14th June
As one of the world’s most beloved 90’s girl bands, the Spice Girls regularly dominated London stages, championing the boom in ‘Cool Britannia’. Having reformed for a UK reunion tour in 2019, they’re back – and Wembley Stadium is the perfect venue to see this adored girl group live once more. There are a range of hospitality packages available to help upgrade the experience, or you can opt for keeping things simple during your stay at the Chilworth London Paddington and simply immerse yourself in a little nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Hyde Park / 14th July
Among the UK’s most popular entertainers, Robbie Williams was once part of Take That, but his solo career has produced classic hits such as crowd-pleasers ‘Let Me Entertain You’ and ‘Angels’. With his one-day-only gig in London’s Hyde Park this summer, Williams will no doubt be mixing old favourites with a few newer tracks, in what promises to be a fun evening out for all ages.
Budweiser Gardens / 29th July
After taking a break from music, Canadian superstar Michael Buble is back in London and promises to put on quite a show. For those visiting the Chilworth London Paddington, this is a great opportunity to see a musical artist in his prime. The spacious nature of the venue means there is plenty of room for enjoying a party atmosphere, too.
