Three More to Try

There’s nothing quite like the electricity of a live gig. Get out and experience it for yourself this week, starting with these three:

 

Adele

Despite the size of the gigs (stadium) and non-stop record-breaking (fastest-selling album in UK chart history, anyone?), Adele has a way of keeping things intimate – whether it’s inviting a newly-engaged couple on stage (at London’s 02 Arena) or showing off her Mother’s Day mug (ditto). No surprise she’s been wowing audiences from London to Glasgow, then, on this, her first tour since 2011. Now it’s Birmingham’s turn. Miss it, miss out.

29 March – 1 April, Genting Arena, Birmingham

 

The Finishing Touch:

Wrap yourself in a big, warm, Adele-inspired soulful embrace with Rimmel London Super Gel ‘Bare Hug’.

 

Chvrches

Their musical credibility got the rubber stamp when they were ranked fifth on the BBC’s Sound of 2013 list, but it took last year’s controversy (in which singer Lauren Mayberry hit back at critical social media) to make the band headline news around the world. If any good came from that sorry affair, it’s that Chvrches skilful blend of electronic alt-rock found its way to a broader audience. Revel in it this weekend as their UK tour heads home to Glasgow.

2 April, SSE Hydro, Glasgow

 

The Finishing Touch:

What better way to pay tribute to a guitar band than with Rimmel London Super Gel in ‘Rock N Roll by Kate’

 

Jess Glynne

It’s been a stratospheric couple of years for the London singer who found fame with her turn on Clean Bandit’s ‘Rather Be’. Now a bone fide star in her own right – her debut album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ went straight into the UK charts at number one – this relatively intimate gig is set to be a corker. Trust us: there’s no place you’d rather be. (See what we did there?)

1 April, Mandela Hall, Belfast

 

The Finishing Touch:

Make an homage to the fiery-haired singer with nails in ‘Red Ginger by Kate’ from Rimmel London Super Gel.
