We loved every minute of 2018, but in 2019, we're doing this even BIGGER! Check out what we've got in store for you lovely people over the next 12 months!
Firstly, we cannot wait to kick off the year officially as Resorts World Arena. We waved goodbye to Genting Arena at the start of December 2018 and we’re looking forward to making some real big memories as Resorts World Arena this year! Secondly, like we mentioned earlier, we’ve got some HUGE things in store for you guys in 2019. We’ve already confirmed some massive acts and over the next few months we’ll be announcing even more jaw-dropping events - watch this space, you have been warned.
So, what can you lot look forward to this year?
The worlds greatest showmen are heading to Birmingham
Hugh won’t believe how good May 2019 is looking here at Resorts World Arena as we welcome two super, superstars to our place in the space of a week! First up on the 20th-21st legendary crooner Michael Buble returns to the city, bringing those dreamy vocals to Brum. The last time he was in the city, he was performing at the launch of our sister venue the Barclaycard Arena (now Arena Birmingham) in 2015 and we’re getting ready to welcome him back with open arms. Seven days later, Hollywood icon HUGH JACKMAN arrives with his first ever live arena show! We expect he’ll deliver all our favourites from The Greatest Showman and Les Miserables, but we doubt he’ll spike his hair up and don his Wolverine claws...but who knows, we could be wrong. Finally, unmistakable Andrea Bocelli returns with his latest show which leave you in complete awe!
It’s all about the family
If you love a big night out with the fam then we have a bunch of awesome live shows which will help you guys make memories you’ll never forget. With the likes of Scrooge arriving in December and Disney On Ice, WWE Live, Blue Planet II Live in Concert, Arenacross, The X Factor Tour, Gymnastics World Cup and Crufts all taking place before, we’ve got loads to keep you and your family entertained all year round.
Guys and their guitars
2019 is the return of the guitar heroes as we get ready to welcome Ozzy Osbourne, Steely Dan, George Ezra, TWENTY ØNE PILØTS, Hall & Oates, Mark Knopfler and Lynyard Skynyard to the Home of Rock...Birmingham! And (not technically a guitar hero but can work his way round a six string) the grungey, rappy, rocky, popy Post Malone also heads to Brum in 2019 with huge sell out show in February!
We love it when legendary artists and bands return to the touring circuit and it seems like this year we're in for a treat, especially here at Resorts World Arena! Coming up over the next 12 months we have; Boyzone, Tears For Fears, Asha Bhosel, 40 Years of Disco, Legends Live, Stepback! 90s vs 00s, We Love The 90s and Busted!
ALL of the LOLS
We've got two big comedy shows lined up so far for the coming year, but who knows, we may have more to announce soon! First up in March, Breaking Bad's Bill Burr brings his 2019 tour to our arena. Then, fast forward to September when Russell Howard returns after a few year's away with his Round The World Tour! Also, the outrageous Mrs Browns Boys are back with D'Musical giving fans of the show the ultimate Brendan O’Carroll experience!
Once you POP you can't stop!
If you say you don't love a good pop concert, then we know you are lying and in 2019, we have some of the biggest acts in pop heading to our arena! First up, in May you can see the cheekiest chap in the industry, Olly Murs, as he brings his All The Hits Tour to Brum. Then, looking forward to November, you guys can see probably the biggest and best girl band in the world, Little Mix, live and kicking across three huge shows!
Told ya 2019 was lookin' good.
