GIG REVIEW:: Katy Perry Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

Large props and loads of colour; that’s what a Katy Perry show looks like. It’s also theatrical and a stand-up comedy show. Just add her hits and a few (shamefully admitting) lesser known songs from the Witness album, and that’s the show we were blessed with that August night in Melbourne. I won’t lie, I was really concerned about seeing Katy Perry live because most of her live performances I’ve

GIG REVIEW:: Bruno Mars Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

If anyone can come remotely close to being as entertaining on stage as the great MJ, I’d point straight to Bruno Mars. Everything I’ve seen him do live through my various screens, has left me in absolute awe. His in-sync moves, his vocal range, his charisma, they are all now signature to him, so that way, he is able to put on a show that sets him apart from the

GIG REVIEW:: Sia Live at AAMI Park, Melbourne

Sia isn’t one to do a lot of touring or live performing and when she does, she isn’t the one to focus on. That’s a lot of what I expected going into this concert at AAMI Park. The few live performances we have seen from her at award ceremonies or special appearances, she has allowed her music to speak for itself and given the stage to the art of music

GIG REVIEW:: Ariana Grande Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

It hasn’t been an easy road for Ariana Grande to get to Melbourne. With the tragedy of Manchester and Ari being understandably forced to cancel shows straight after, it’s awesome to finally have her in Australia and in high spirits again for her Dangerous Woman tour. This isn’t my first time seeing the tiny framed, long pony tailed, pop star. She supported Nicki Minaj during her surprise show at the

GIG REVIEW:: Justin Bieber Live at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne

Well, here I am. Three for three when it comes to Justin Bieber concerts and I ain’t ashamed to say it out loud, regardless of the false stigma that comes with it. As they say; hater’s gon’ hate. The first thing I noticed that I can’t avoid mentioning, is the change in demographic from show to show.  During the My World tour in 2011, we had the squealing young girls

GIG REVIEW:: Selena Gomez Live at Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne

Going into the Selena Gomez show, I knew I was going to a Wiggles concert. It does scare me, the idea of young girls looking up to a young lady who sexualises herself via song and image, but regardless, they love her and I’m sure throughout history there has always been one artist in the same position. Madonna, for example. Maybe even Britney. Selena is a popular artist amongst kiddies,

GIG REVIEW:: Ed Sheeran Live at AAMI Park, Melbourne

It is so difficult to describe a show that completely blows me away; a show that, unlike any other, makes every hair on my body rise, and goosebumps seep through the gabs in between. Watching Ed Sheeran live was an irresistible experience that captivated me with every moment. I caught myself several times staring at the stage, full grinned and zoned out from the atmosphere around me. It was magical.

GIG REVIEW:: Def Leppard Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

I actually cannot put into words how incredible it was to watch my favourite band, live for the first time, but ill try for the sake of a review anyway. It was incredible; simple, special and very memorable. 80’s Glam Rock was a massive influence in my musical journey, even though I was born in 1989 and I missed that era entirely. Thankfully, my brother kept the era alive for

GIG REVIEW:: Kiss Live at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

If you’ve already been to a Kiss concert and missed this one, then you didn’t miss anything. If this was your first Kiss concert like it was mine, you would have wished you saw them at their peak back in the 80’s. It was a typical Kiss show; blood drooling, guitar smashing, fire blowing, typical Kiss show that they have been doing for years, and it was to a crowd

GIG REVIEW:: Boyz II Men Live at The Palais Theatre, Melbourne

What I remember about Boyz II Men, growing up in the 90s, are their vocals, their harmonies and their extensive list of R&B ballads. So, to see them live would mean revisiting all those memories. It was also my first time seeing a show at the historic Melbourne venue, The Palais Theatre. This concert could have potentially been the greatest R&B concert I’ve ever seen, but unfortunately, the sound system
