Adele headlined the U.K.'s famed Glastonbury festival Saturday, a much anticipated gig that the singer called "the best fucking moment of my whole life" during the show. The 15-song, 90-minute-long set featured the live debut of 25's "River Lea" alongside over a dozen of the singer's hits including the headlining set's closer "Someone Like You."
“We’re going to play a few songs now that you might know. You’ve been very patient; thank you very much. You also might not know them as well…” Dave Gahan, bridging the main set of Soulsavers material and their encore, which featured two songs from his first two solo records and two from Depeche Mode’s Songs of Faith and Devotion.
Andra Day was in charge of setting the mood for the night, and her incredible vocals and soulful sound did just that. She's definitely the only person we know that can pull off wearing a roller in her fringe without it looking like she's a bit mad, too. Towards the end of her set we came to the conclusion that she's the love child of Adele, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse, a mix we're just a little jealous of.
The Apple Music Festival is the new name for iTunes Festival and will take place over ten nights from 19-28 September. It’s a chance for fans to see big names in a smaller venue than they would normally play. While The Weeknd, The Chemical Brothers, and Take That will perform their own headlining sets, Leon Bridges will perform with Pharrell, while James Bay will open for Florence + The Machine.
In support of their newest album Into The Wild Life, Halestorm, fronted by the dynamic powerhouse Lzzy Hale, joined forces for The Pretty Reckless to take the road by storm with the Carnival of Madness. They made their stop in Atlanta at the Tabernacle April 23 for a night of really great hard rock music fueled by strong, confident women. Starset in support with a futuristic, space boy motif for their set made for a terrific night of music. Thank god and hallelujah for the power of Lzzy Hale, seriously one of the most dynamic performers in the business.
