Weekly Roundup - Pop, Rock and Python at The O2
It’s a great month for pop here at The O2. You can still grab the last remaining Katy Perry and Little Mix tickets for their shows in just a couple of weeks. This will be Little Mix’s first arena show, so you could be among the first to welcome them to the big stage. If you’re more of an indie fan, The Kaiser Chiefs will be playing early next year for the first time since 2007. Monty Python are also heading to the tent in July and will be performing their last ever shows. Ever. Read on for more details.
Little Mix – 25 May 2014
X Factor winners, Little Mix, are heading to the tent on Bank Holiday Sunday 25 May. Their latest album, Salute, entered at No. 1 on the US iTunes chart and is now their second top ten record in North America selling over 40,000 copies. They’ve also clocked up two UK No. 1 singles and are very excited about their first arena tour. The girls say, “We are going to be pulling out all the stops to make sure it’s as unforgettable for our Mixers as it will be for us.”
Katy Perry – 27 to 28 May 2014
Chart-topping sensation, Katy Perry, is bringing The Prismatic World Tour to The O2 later this month. She’ll be joined by special guests Icona Pop and promises a spectacular show featuring a stage pit that will allow her to get closer to her fans than ever before. Katy’s latest record, Prism, became her second No. 1 in the UK and shot to the top of the iTunes chart in 90 countries worldwide. Don’t miss the chance to catch your favourite California girl.
Monty Python Live (mostly) – to 20 July 2014
And now for something completely different. Monty Python are bringing their last ever tour to the tent next month. Performing some of their greatest hits with modern and topical twists, fans of the Flying Circus are in for a special treat as a dead parrot and the Spanish Inquisition take to the stage for a long-awaited reprisal of their roles. This is your last chance to see your comedy heroes appear live. They’re never going to tour again. Ever. So make sure you don’t miss out.
Kaiser Chiefs – 13 February 2015
We predict a riot. (Maybe not a real one). The Kaiser Chiefs are coming back to The O2 for the first time since 2007. The band have just spent two weeks at the top of the UK chart with their fifth studio album, Education, Education, Education & War. Ricky Wilson says, ‘The last few months have been great, we're enjoying playing the new album and getting our songs ready for our festival slots and then to top it off - we get to start next year at The O2!’ We can’t wait.
