One of my favourite things to do is going to see live music. From frequently attending Party in the Park as a kid - seeing Wyclef Jean on stage drove me wild ha - to finally getting to see the Libertines live at Reading, i've lost count of the number of gigs i've been too. One of the first things before you can pop along to a gig is of course to get hold of tickets. If you're a bit slow on the uptake like me and very often miss out on tickets, StubHub UK can be a lifesaver. Owned by Ebay, this ticket website lets you get hold of a variety of genres. You'll even get Robbie Williams tickets  -who I saw at Knebworth and is by far one of the greatest live shows i've ever seen. The great news is they'll be guaranteed to be genuine and you'll recieve them in plenty of time.

I'm seeing Two Door Cinema Club in London next Friday and this is the outfit i'm planning to wear - i'm lucky my office is fairly casual so I won't look too out of place during the day. I think skinny jeans and a tee are the perfect gig outfit. You don't want to be worried about your skirt riding up when you're dancing away to your favourite song. Comfortable shoes are a must especially if you're planning on standing. At the grand old age of 24 i've decided to stay away from the mosh pit - brusied feet no longer appeal to me.

Who's the best artist you've seen live?

This post was written in collaboration.


  1. I'm going to see them next tuesday! Love your jacket. god knows what I'm going to wear :O

    Jealous you got to see the Libs too! xx

  2. I haven't seen a good gig for ages. My favourite was going to see my brother play for the first time for obvious reasons! So proud of my lil bro!

  3. Lovely outfit Sophie! I went to see The Strokes live when I was about 16- best gig ever!

  4. That is such a good website, I've used them before and I appreciate the security of them. I've been fobbed off by extortionate KOL tickets before, never again!



  5. love the outfit <3 I'm a big fan of gigging too, some of favs are The Kills, Morrissey and Foals I think :p xx

  6. Love this outfit, I have only ever been to one gig (Bon Jovi lol!) so I wouldn't know where to begin!

  7. Love a good gig, me! I've no idea who the best band I've ever seen live could be, I've been going to gigs since I was 13 ( a scary 33 years ago) and I've lost track of who I've seen over the years! x

  8. I'm seeing Two Door Cinema Club on Thursday! make sure you get there early to see the support band Bastille xx

  9. Gгеetіngs from Lοs angеles! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you present here and can't wait to take a lоok whеn I gеt home.

  11. I own a wholе new pilates studіo іn the North.
    Вelieve this or not, I dο not hаve a internеt
    ѕite still. The рroblem is I'm not certain whether to use Blogger or Hubpages. I discover that I would like more of a weblog feel than a web site feel, if that tends to make any sense. I would like to have the ability to update my site with weblog posts. Would you be capable of give a couple of advantages and disadvantages for going with either Blogger or Live journal? I actually need to come to a decision relatively promptly on this matter, because it doesn't make sense for me to own this studio without a ωеb site.
    It would be kind if уou can give me some aѕsiѕtance.
