UPDATE – 12/30,7:26AM: Thanks to reader @Curtis, we have information on the Amy Grant show on 1/21. She will be performing at Northland Church in Longwood, and you can find details here.
As you know klynn and I both are huge music buffs. We’ve written about and promoted concerts and live performances since this blog’s inception. So I was completely excited to start making plans for several concerts to kick off the new year!
She’s controversial and completely misunderstood (in my opinion), and Lady Gaga puts on one-heck-of-a-show…or so I’m told. A friend of mine snatched-up tickets for us when the show recently switched from Hard Rock Live to the UCF Arena, and I’m really stoked to see this performer live.
You’ve undoubtedly heard this song on the radio, here’s the video for her current single “Bad Romance” (from the recently released “The Fame Monster”). I think it’s an awesome Euro-goth-pop song, and is very different from other material on the US radio.
She’s long been one of my favorite artists; I grew-up listening to her all throughout my childhood. I’ve actually seen Amy Grant perform live several times, and she’s truly an amazing talent.
Like Lady Gaga, believe it or not Amy has been quite controversial throughout her career, too. With strong roots in Contemporary Christian music, Amy broke into the “secular” market in the late ’80s, and sent many of her Christian fans into a tizzy. Personally, I don’t care what type of music she’s singing…as long as she’s singing!
Amy’s website shows she’s coming to the Central Florida area on 1/21; however, no venue or ticket information has been released yet. If we find anything out we’ll be sure to post it here. Below is the video for her song “That’s What Love Is For,” one of my favorite songs from her Grammy-nominated “Heart In Motion” record:
Paul Oakenfold is one of the world’s most famous DJs. He’s often been accused of being “a sellout” or too “mainstream” but I dig his music regardless.
He’ll be performing at downtown Orlando’s Club Firestone on Saturday, February 6th, although whether he’s performing his own original music or simply DJing a set has not yet been disclosed.
If you plan on going to any of these shows drop by our Facebook Fan Page to let us know, and we’ll look for you at the show(s).
