After being a lucky guest of Rdio at Sam Smith’s serenading concert on Saturday night at the Brisbane Riverstage, I was keen to see what other gigs Brisbane has in store for 2015!
Rdio has a catalog of 32 million songs that are accessible anywhere in the world instantly with algorithmic personalization – read: when you want to listen to music but don’t know what, Rdio has your back.
Listening to stations is free and if you want to listen to your favorite albums and songs it will only set you back $11.99 a month. I have created a playlist for 5 Gigs You Don’t Want To Miss This Year to get you in the mood for the best Brisbane concerts of 2015. Here they are:
Alt-J – Friday 8th May – Brisbane Riverstage – Tickets
After just wrapping up Coachella, UK lads Atl J are coming back to Australia! Us Brisbane folk are lucky to be the first of 5 shows across the country and there are still a few tickets left!
Maroon 5 – Monday 28th September – Brisbane Entertainment Centre – Tickets
Grammy Award winning rock band Maroon 5 have made a comeback on our radio’s lately and have added a Brisbane show to their Australia tour. Grab your girls for a night of upbeat tunes and a little Adam Levine perv.
Hozier – Friday 6th November – Brisbane Riverstage – Tickets
If you don’t recognize the name you’ll definitely recognize the song – Take Me To Church is Hozier’s Grammy-nominated hit that shot him to fame. After just finishing his gig at Bluesfest he has announced his Australia Headline Show.
Ed Sheeran – Saturday 28th November – Suncorp Stadium – Tickets
We can’t get enough of Ed Sheeran! After just wrapping up his sold-out arena show, he’s coming back to play stadiums, and lucky for Brisbane we are first up!
Taylor Swift – Saturday 5th Dec – Suncorp Stadium – Tickets
And the best is saved until last (personal opinion). T-swizzle is coming back to Aus with special guest Vance Joy – what a bonus! I know what I want for an early Christmas present!
