KHALID | Manchester Academy, February 17

Khalid is an up and coming American R&B singer and song writer. Aged only 19, he already has hits such as ‘Young, Dumb and Broke’ and ‘Silence’ with producer Marshmello, which dominated the music scene in 2017. He is proving to already be a massive success, possibly why tickets to see him start at £42 and are almost sold out!

IMAGINE DRAGONS | Manchester Academy, March 3

With a UK number 1 album and 3 UK top 10s, Imagine Dragons are definitely one not to miss. They’ll be playing songs from their new album, Evolve, as well as all the classics such as ‘Radio- active’, ‘On Top of The World’ and their new single ‘Thunder’ at Manchester Arena. Tickets start from £42.57 on SeeTickets.


Manchester based indie rock band Everything Everything head to Manchester this Spring. Known for their unique style and use of electric and with four albums under their belt, they have been widely critically acclaimed. Tickets start from £22.70 on Ticket- master.

FALL OUT BOY | Manchester Arena, March 29

American rock band Fall Out Boy formed in 2001 and besides a brief hiatus from 2009-2012, have dominated the rock scene ever since. Each album they’ve released is known for having a different experimental sound and their new album, Mania, is no exception. Headling the Manchester Arena, they will without a doubt put on an unforgettable show. Be quick! This show is almost certain to sell out. Tickets start from £37.10 on Ticketmaster.

WALK THE MOON | 02 Ritz, April 5

Walk The Moon exploded onto the popular music scene in 2014 with their debut single Shut Up & Dance reaching Number 4 in the UK Official Charts. Having seen them perform myself I can assure you, there’s never a boring moment, they know exactly how to get the crowd moving. Tickets start from £21 on Ticketmaster.


No problem, just don’t use ticketing tout websites! Try fan-to-fan resale sites, where tickets must be sold for face value or less. Your purchase will be protected so you’ve got less chance of getting ripped off!
