Mega Pop Stars to rock Australia
Beginning with Pink to Rihanna, Beyonce and then finally Taylor Swift - fans of these divas are in for a treat beginning July. One by one, all these superstars of music are going to rock various stages, stadiums and arenas in Australia, rustling up a frenzy of notes and dance moves. Tickets are up and pop fever is at an all time high. Pink's The Truth About Love Tour followed by Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour, then Beyonce's Mrs Carter Show and finally Taylor Swift's The Red Tour - fans are definitely going to be asking for more.
The Truth About Love Tour (2013) may sound like psychobabble aimed at giving you the down and dirty about this rather flip-flop emotion, but is in fact the name of Pink's ongoing Australian tour. Between July to August; Pink will hit Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Pink had originally toured Australia in 2009 and what was to be just a 20-day affair, extended to over three months buoyed by her spectacular success as a live performer. Till date she has been the most successful female touring and stage artist in Australia.
Under my umbrella
This gauntlet thrown by Pink has been swiftly picked up and challenged in turn by the rest of the princesses of pop. Rihanna will hit Australia in September with the Diamonds World Tour. Currently holding the dubious title of 'No.1 person on Facebook' with 63 million fans, she will hit Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney after her North America tour. She holds the record of being the top-selling digital artist of all time - let's just see if her music falls into tune with the home crowd here.
Come October, Beyonce will be hitting the land down under. She is known to wow the audience with her rather fierce onstage persona, glittering costumes and super visual effects couple with pyrotechnics. Last seen in Australia in 2009 before she had her baby, Beyonce's much awaited Mrs. Carter Show will be in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. From being a member of the band Destiny's Child to actually being destiny's chosen one - wonder if Beyonce's destiny will make her show a super success?
You belong with me
7-time Grammy winner and international superstar Taylor Swift too seems to be headed swiftly down to Australia, albeit in December with The Red Tour performance - with special guest Guy Sebastian. Rolling Stone is all praise for her live performances, called her "a maestro at the top of the game". She will be the only star after Madonna to do stadium performance, hitting Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne - it's a wait and watch to see if her performance can pack in the stadiums.
