The Critics Choice winner at this year’s BRIT Awards, Emeli Sande, will be performing at Lounge on the Farm in Canterbury this summer.
Emeli has stormed into the charts with her debut single, Heaven and now Next To Me. Her real name is Adele but of course there can only be one Adele in the music business.
Also announced on the bill so far are The Wombats, Chic, Mystery Jets, former headliner Roots Manuva, David Rodigan and Goldie.
News of the other summer concerts are starting to filter out. Rochester Castle Concerts are back this year with Steps headlining on Thursday, July 19. Jools Holland is playing the evening before. It will be great to see Steps back on the main stage blasting out their big classics that we remember back in the 1990s.
As the weather has been mild recently and the nights are lighter, now feels right to write about what is coming for Summer 2012. Cheryl Cole will be back with a new album and it is said she will mark her return by performing on new TV talent show, The Voice. Her American manager, will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas is a judge, so it makes sense.
You may have been to see Kylie Minogue in concert last year. Well, expect another concert and another album from her, celebrating 25 years in the music business. I can confirm she puts on a brilliant show.
Mariah Carey and Beyoncé may have recently had babies, but that has not stopped them making music. Beyoncé has already spoken about releasing new material. She has been writing with Ryan Tedder who is the lead singer from band One Republic. He also co-wrote with Adele on her record-breaking second record 21. Mariah already has new songs ready to go – one of which she is about to debut in America, so expect to hear it here soon.
