One Direction tickets from BritEvents.com this Saturday 25 May 10am!!

This young boy-band has become one of the newest world-wide hits after they competed against each other on The X Factor.

The boys didn’t qualify as solo artists, but an ingenious decision to put them through as a boyband has led to world wide domination!

Their debut album, which followed their success after the X Factor, Up all Night immediately shot to the top of the UK chats in the first week of its release.

Winning their first Brit Award, making music history in the US,  selling out at each of their concert tours and playing to packed out screaming audiences has shown that this young group of lads are already at the top of their career, and there is no time like the present to cash in on a world tour.

So, with massive hype and publicity the band have announced they will tour the world with their ‘Where We Are World Tour’ in 2014.

There is no doubt that tickets to see One Direction are going to be in high demand, but BritEvents will have 1D tickets available for  fans on Saturday 25 May at 10am.

They have confirmed four dates in the UK which include 28 May at the Stadium Of Light in Sunderland, Etihad Stadium in Manchester on 31 May, Murrayfield Stadium on 3 June and finishing at the Wembley Stadium on 7 June 2014.

The band have been rumoured to have more dates up their sleeve, so make sure you keep a close eye on BritEvents.com for the release of more One Direction Tickets and UK tour dates.

A new album is to be released later this year and will be supported with their tour, the boys have been teasing fans about their new album saying  they have moved direction and have taken a slightly rockier tone with an edgier sound to it.

The Jonus Brothers did it and with much success, so why not One Direction!!

The lads are still very young, but have achieved  much success in their life so far, let’s all hope that they don’t go down the same road as JLS and fizzle out after a few years.

The boys have said that the music is growing with them, keeping their music fresh and up to date is a sure-fire way of keeping them band on trend.

Good luck to Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik on their worldwide jaunt!!

Although 40 years may have passed since the release of Mike Oldfield’s ground-breaking and best-selling Tubular Bells album the music still has the power to inspire and amaze.

Tubular Bells tours the UK

If you listened carefully during the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony you will have heard a brief re-arrangement used in the piece celebrating the NHS.

Fast forward from 1973 and the three sequels Oldfield released in the 1990’s to 2008 and Australia. Picture two musicians, Aidan Roberts and Daniel Holdsworth, who are long-time friends, sat around a camp fire, trying to play Tubular Bells the whole way through, using only their two guitars. That’s how Tubular Bells For Two, the multi-award winning musical show was born.

It took them nine months of rehearsal and the introduction of nineteen other instruments, but eventually the pair were able to perform the album live and its no exaggeration to say that their show has gone from strength to strength since. After wowing audiences Down Under and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Tubular Bells For Two is ready to hit London, with its premiere at Union Chapel in Islington on May 25..

When Mike Oldfield released his 1973 classic, it required more than 30 musicians to perform it. But now, exactly 40 years later, it just takes two musicians, albeit massively talented ones, to recreate the album on stage, in real-time and in a unique and compelling theatrical experience.

The original album shot to number one around the world, throwing its young composer into the international spotlight whilst kick-starting Richard Branson’s Virgin empire.

You really must get tickets to the show to witness the herculean feat of Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts racing from instrument to instrument , juggling pianos, organs, guitars, mandolin, drums, glockenspiel, loop pedals, synthesizers and, of course, Tubular Bells.

These amazing musicians  recreate the beauty and playful lunacy of one of the most important albums of the 20th Century … with just four hands and four feet.

Welsh Rockers Stereophonics have been touring the UK this December to sold out audiences. Birmingham’s O2 Academy have announced today that a small batch of tickets have been added for tonight’s gig.

Stereophonics' new album 'Graffiti On A train' to be released in March 2013

More tickets added for the Stereophonics for tonight in Birmingham

The O2 Academy used their Facebook page to advertise the news this afternoon that more tickets had been released for the stereophonics later this evening (19 December).

BritEvents.com have also got tickets available for tonight’s event at the O2 Academy and tickets for the  Stereophonics gig in The Troxy in London for tomorrow night (20 December).

The Stereophonics who formed in 1992 in Wales, have had their fair share of sadness.  After playing their first ever gig in Cardiff City Stadium to a sold out audience of 30,000, the original drummer Stuart Cable was found dead in his home just two days later.

Audio Engineer Javier Weyler from Argentina replaced the original sticksman in 2005

Unfortunately in July of this year the band announced on Facebook and Twitter that Javier had left the band, but no explanation as to why the drummer had left was given.

In September of this year it was announced that the former drummer for the Noisettes , Jamie Morrison had replaced Weyler, and a month later the band released a video for the track ‘Violins and Tambourines’ from their upcoming album ‘Graffiti On The Train’ due for release in March 2013.

So, grab the chance of seeing one of the most underrated bands of the decade and get your Stereophonics tickets from BritEvents.com
