What To Look Forward To In 2015
2015 is already shaping up to be a pretty exciting year for music. Here's why!
1. The Return Of Madonna
Madonna is returning in 2015 with a tour and the new album Rebel Heart. We've already heard some music from it and the record is sounding pretty exciting. Love her or hate her, Madonna always turns heads.
2. Smooth Extra
There's lots of excitement here at Smooth. We've launched a brand station called Smooth Extra. Smooth Extra is your Refreshing Music Mix. You can tune in on DAB now!
3. Fleetwood Mac
There was a lot of talk about this happening, but the Fleetwood Mac reunion is definitely on. With a bunch of shows already confirmed, it's going to be a great year for these guys!
4. Gladys Knight's Tour
The Empress of Soul and seven-time Grammy winner revealed she'd be playing a full UK tour in 2015, with a special show at London's Royal Albert Hall included. It's one event that simply cannot be missed!
5. Adele's New Album
It's been a long time coming, but it's officially on its way. The new Adele album will be with us in 2015 and, judging by the response to the last few, it looks set to be pretty amazing.
6. Lionel Richie At Glastonbury
After Dolly Parton stole the show at Glastonbury 2015, it was a steep task to find an artist good enough to replace her. But Michael Eavis pulled it off and booked Lionel Richie! The Hello singer is guaranteed to pull a huge crowd and get everyone dancing in their wellies.
7. Elton John Shows
Elton John is one of the best and most loved performers of all time - and he's back! Sir Elton has a string of dates up and down the country and the shows are shaping up to be some of his most iconic.
8. Ringo Starr's New Record And Tour
The former Beatle announced via a video blog on his website that a new album was ready, mixed, and that the band would be hitting the road in spring. It's great to see him doing what he does best!
