MTV Gig Highlights Of The Week: Glastonbury, BST Hyde Park & Loads More
Another big week for gigs...
It's another week, and Team MTV have been courageously hitting up all the latest gigs to help give you a little highlight reel of what's been going on. Didn't manage to score tickets to any of the below? Well, here's what we made of them...
Well, another Glasto has passed us by, but 2015 was definitely the craziest one yet. Kanye going HAM on a cherry picker and declaring he's the 'greatest living rock star on Earth'? Yeah, people won't be forgetting that in a hurry. - June 26-28
Taylor Swift @ BST Hyde Park
It's common knowledge by now that Taylor Swift never goes out of style, and this gig proved exactly why. We could fangirl over her 1989 London concert for days, but instead why don't you read our full review of Taylor at Hyde Park here instead. - June 27
Miguel @ XOYO
Last night Miguel brought the tunes, the moves and had the ladies all hot & bothered at his impressive XOYO gig. - June 18
The Strokes & Beck @ BST Hyde Park
It was their first show in London for five years, and was definitely worth the wait! The Strokes treated us to a truck load of epic indie anthems. They definitely got the crowd bouncing.
Beck was there too, busting out classic after classic. Is there nothing this man can't do? - June 18
Blur @ BST Hyde Park
Brit pop at its best. It felt like we were transformed back to the 1990s! - June 20
Years & Years, Grace Jones, Chic & Kylie @ BST Hyde Park
Kylie presided over a day of relaxed fun in the (mostly) sunshine!
Highlights included a joyful set from Years and Years, an equally eye catching one from the remarkable (and ageless) Grace Jones and Nile Rodgers & Chic’s brilliant look back at the golden years of disco grooves, which culminated in a star studded stage invasion for a ten minute rendition of ‘Good Times’, featuring Sam Smith, Cara Delevingne and some unexpected salsa moves by Strictly’s Bruno Tonioli!
Kylie shone almost as bright as her stage’s oversized disco ball, proving that even after 25 years she still knows how to take the crowd to dancepop heaven!
Jimi Charles Moody @ St Pancras Old Church
Moody tunes from the masked man himself. - 22 June
Purdy @ Pizza Express Live
Amazing vocal performance from the charismatic show woman that is Purdy. Great singer, great band and great pizza! - June 22
