Best live music concerts in London

Posted In Music, Products Review - By Techtiplib on Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 With No Comments »

If your thing is live music, your city is London in 2013. In stately concert halls and fun-filled parks, London is alive with the sound of the old masters and rocking to the beat of the new. Music is everywhere. There is a tune for everyone, no matter the age or the preference.

The grand old city has become a music festival in the New Year. Starting in January and continuing through December, the Southbank Centre offers the contemporary classics, honoring a book by Alex Ross called The Rest Is Noise. Throughout January, choral and jazz ensembles perform at Kings Place in the London A Cappella Festival. For those who like music while they dine, the Royal Botanic Gardens is the place to be in July, especially if you bring a meal to enjoy the music and delightful summer evening. During any month in 2013, the music lover can find a London music festival.

London’s concert halls are filled with the music of various entertainers. In late January, Donny and Marie Osmond leave their Las Vegas digs to celebrate their 50th year in show business at The O2. Paloma Faith, who has been favorably compared to Amy Winehouse, sings at the Hammersmith Apollo in February and gifted guitarist Bonnie Raitt is performing at Royal Albert Hall in June.

The London Symphony Orchestra caters to those who prefer their music in the grand old style. Known as one of the world’s great orchestras, the LSO, which performs at the Barbican, offers more than 120 concerts each year and also features the music of renowned film composers.

In mid-2013, the legendary English rock group from the 1960s, The Moody Blues, entertains at The O2. However, London theatre offers even more for music lovers who like rock ‘n roll. The Beatles Evening Tour celebrates the Fab Four’s 50th anniversary. The two-hour small group tour recounts Beatle history as it travels about the city with a guide who is aided by their music and film footage.

Music is king this year in London, but if small clubs, a classical evening, or a picnic in the park is not on your list, tries a musical experience in the West End. Some of the best and most popular of musical comedy theatre – including Wicked, The Phantom of the Opera, and Les Miserables – provides a satisfying evening for any music lover.
