Eventim Highlights from the 55th Grammys

The 55th Grammy Awards took place last night in L.A., celebrating the best in all-walks of music from contemporary to classical and everything in between. As usual, the star-studded show was filled with appearances and live performances from some of the biggest names in music, many of whom are set to play tour the UK this year…

Beyoncé

Now completely cemented as music royalty, Beyoncé picked up the Best Traditional R&B Performance Grammy for ‘Love On Top’. The award comes a week after her incredible Super Bowl halftime performance and follows the announcement of her ‘Mrs. Carter World Tour’, featuring a date at the incredible Manchester Arena.

Tickets for this Manchester show go on sale 09:30 Saturday 23rd February. Don’t miss out – click here to sign up for an Eventim TicketAlarm and we’ll send you a reminder when tickets go on sale.

Beyoncé‘s baby sister, Solange was pictured at the ceremony, next to a rather unimpressed-looking Jay-Z! A unique and talented pop singer in her own right, there’s no doubt she has everything in place to follow in her sister’s footsteps.

Watch the brilliant video for her ‘Losing You’ single below, and don’t miss her at Field Day London in May – tickets on sale at Eventim now.

Rihanna

Another superstar in the world of pop music, Rihanna, performed a number of times at the Grammys and, although she did not come away with an award this year, her live show is always breath-taking.

Don’t miss your chance to catch her in the UK – tickets for her ‘Diamond Tour’ Manchester Arena shows are still available at Eventim!

Elton John

Elton John played alongside Ed Sheeran last night, as the duo performed a rendition of ‘A-Team’. Alongside the success of Mumford and Sons and Adele, who picked up Best Album and Best Pop Solo performance for her live version of ‘Set Fire to the Rain’, respectively the two represented a good night for British music. Sir Elton returned later to perform in another all-star collaboration, paying tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December.

Elton John and his band bring their unique and unforgettable live show to the new Leeds Arena this September, the first time in nearly 30 years Elton and his band have performed in Leeds – tickets on sale now at Eventim.

Alicia Keys

Another star of the Super Bowl, Alicia Keys, blew the crowd away with her typically brilliant vocal last night (despite some finding her attire slightly more worthy of comment…).

The ‘Empire State of Mind’ singer is live in the UK this May – tickets on sale now at Eventim.

Bonnie Raitt

Bonnie Raitt picked up her 10th Grammy last night, and her first since 1996, winning the Best Americana Album category ahead of Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers. This marks her third major comeback and is an extremely exciting preamble to her UK tour in July – tickets are available now at Eventim.
