artRAVE Birmingham Review

It’s almost been three years since I booked tickets to see Lady Gaga for the first time. So in honour of the artRAVE I want to write a review and remember that amazing night.

As you’ve probably guessed I’m a huge Lady Gaga fan, it took me way too long to see her in concert. But on February 5th 2014 that all changed when I booked my standing tickets to artRAVE – The ARTPOP Ball, October 15th could not come quick enough.

I went to see Gaga in Birmingham at The National Indoor Arena, now known as the Barclaycard arena. I queued for twelve hours to get as close as I could possibly get and it was more than worth the wait.

This concert was a celebration of art and creativity, so I tie dyed my shoes! 

Gaga performed her obvious hits along with the album she was touring, ARTPOP. She really knows how to put on a show, within the first five minutes of the concert there were giant balls flying around, confetti in the air and she had already managed to play the piano.

One of the highlights of the night for me was Telephone as it was the song where I shared a moment with Gaga and I briefly caught it on camera, take a look.

Okay, i’m sorry about the screaming but it’s Lady goddamn Gaga.

Another one of my favourite performances of the night was definitely Bad Romance

As well as being one of Gaga’s most iconic songs, it really captured the spirit of the whole night, crazy outfits and wigs, monsters with their paws up, it was just a really beautiful experience.

My First Blog Post

Hi Guys,

Since this is my first blog post I thought I’d give you a quick introduction to me and what I’m all about.

As I already mentioned I’m a second year
Journalism at Teesside University, hopefully second year is as crazy as first year, so I thought I’d share the next two years of my life with you all.

Most of my university life is spent in a night club, usually Mixtape on a Tuesday. If you live in Middlesbrough and haven’t been to Mixtape then you’re seriously missing out! No doubt I’ll blog and vlog from night outs out so keep an eye out for those.

Just a few facts about me

  • I’m a huge Lady Gaga fan and I’ve seen her live twice
  • I’m from a Seaside town called Amble by the Sea, it’s okay no one knows where it is
  • I have identical twin god-daughters, Erin & Eva.

I just want the world to catch a glimpse of this weird but wonderful world I live in.
