Dates for your diary in January
A very Happy New Year from everyone here at Quebecs Luxury Apartments! We hope you enjoyed a fantastic festive season full of good food, good friends and good times – but don’t waste too much time in Christmas recovery mode, because there is loads of great stuff going on this month in Leeds, so have a look and start planning a brilliant start to 2015!
January 20th – Queen are playing at Leeds Arena
It might be a little early in the year, but we reckon we’re safe in saying this will be one of the biggest music events of 2015!
After the success of a sell out tour covering North America, New Zealand and Australia last year, Queen are back on British soil this month with their current front man, American star Adam Lambert. Guitarist Brian May says it’s going to be ‘It’s big and daring. We’re going to do it to the max.’ He’s full of praise for Lambert too, saying ‘He’s an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality. It is very comfortable.’
There are some tickets still available from the First Direct Arena, but get in fast to avoid disappointment!
January 22nd – Nils Lofgren is playing at Leeds City Variety Music Hall
Long time member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, musical virtuoso Nils Lofgren will be bringing his guitar, piano and song writing skills to Leeds on the 22nd.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member may be good friends with ‘The Boss’, but he’s also a legend in his own right, hence the show’s already sold out! If you missed out on tickets, call the box office for cancellations.
January 23rd – Strictly Come Dancing comes to the Leeds Arena
If you like the TV show, you’ll LOVE the live show! Hosted by Zoe Ball, the Strictly Come Dancing live tour promises to be packed full of music, dancing, and all the glitz, glamour and sparkle of the popular Saturday show.
There are still a few tickets available, but they’re selling fast – so get in quick to avoid disappointment!
January 24th – The BBC Royal Philharmonic Orchestra comes to Leeds Town Hall
Classical music lovers are in for a real treat when the BBC’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra comes to town on the 24th. Playing pieces by Beethoven, Mozart and Bruckner, conducted by Juanjo Meno, this promises to be a wonderful evening.
Tickets are available to book online – act fast to avoid disappointment.
January 25th – Jessie J Plays the O2 Academy
Hot on the heels of her best selling number one single ‘Bang Bang’, home-grown British superstar Jessie J is playing a string of UK dates, including the O2 Academy in Leeds on the 25th. The show has been sold out for some time, but it’s worth trying Get Me In for tickets if you don’t mind paying over face value.
January 28th – Three Degrees play at Leeds City Variety Music Hall
The famous female vocal group are bringing the sounds of the sixties back to Leeds on the 28th. With worldwide hits such as ‘When will I see you again?’ and ‘Take good care of yourself’ under their belts, these ladies have been touring for over 40 years, so you’ll definitely be in good hands! Tickets are available to book online – you might even bump into Prince Charles, as he’s apparently a big fan!
January 29th – Banff Mountain Film Festival at Leeds Town Hall
The world’s most prestigious mountain film festival brings a night of fantastic short films to the town hall. From the action packed to the thought provoking, there will be something for everyone. Find out more about Banff on their website and book your tickets here.
January 31st – Halle Orchestra are playing at Leeds Town Hall
Conductor Sir Mark Elder and Pianist Sofya Gulyak lead the Halle Orchestra in a variety of favourites by Ravel, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven, in what promises to be a wonderful event for fans of the classics. Tickets are available online.
