Teenage Finnish pop sensation Robin will be confirmed later today as the temporary replacement for Zayn Malik who left One Direction last week in the midst of their tour.
A lot has been said about the leak of Elan, the new Nightwish single. Not least by the band themselves.
Much of their comments and feedback was frowned upon my many of their fans on Facebook (especially) and Twitter. But their underlying argument stands true. Here are the 3 reasons why I think they were justified.
As if you need any further reasons why not to believe David Cameron.
I am not surprised that Niko Kovac feels this way. What a terrible injustice!
Given the allegations of corruption, bribes and Sepp Blatter generally being an out of touch old fart – my faith in FIFA and love for the World Cup has been absolutely shattered.
So what was wrong? Mostly the referee and his linesmen. He/they made some really bad decisions.Embed from Getty Images
So Bill Bailey brought his Qualmpeddler show back to Finland in May 2014, six months after last appearing in Helsinki. I had few reservations about going to see the same show so soon but I was not disappointed.
This year has been looking a bit bleak for gigs or festivals so far. Simple Minds were terrific and Within Temptation … Well, I’m still feeling slightly disappointed with the whole thing: not that I wouldn’t go and see them again though.
Bill Bailey returns to Helsinki next week with his QUALMPEDDLER tour. We went to see him back in November 2013 and he was very entertaining.
I’m quite excited about this one. Simple Minds are another bucket list band for me. It is incredible that I have never seen them before but finally after 37 years I get to see them.
So it has been too long between posts here. How many times have I said that? This time though I am free to write what I want again since I have taken a break from the Social Media insights blog at EzyInsights.
I had fun writing there, about a number of topics, but I wonder if why scepticism shone through at times. Don’t get me wrong. I think that ezyinsights is a great tool, provide easy yet actionable insights into your Social Media presence(s). But Social Media itself, especially Twitter, I struggle still to see the point of it some times.
This year has been a cracker of year for live music for me. I’ve had one of the best festivals ever in Shout it Out Loud and my favourite performance of all time with the incredible Tesla… There was maybe the best “show” when P!nk came to town and Muse made amends for a lackluster performance in Malaysia a few year back.
