1) JAY- Z
King of rap, JAY-Z has recently released his latest album, 4:44, and announced a 4:44 tour across the US. This album is JAY-Z’s 14th studio album to reach No.1 in the charts. With the success of this album, it seems likely JAY-Z would extend his 4:44 tour performing at arenas across the UK in 2018, such as the Barclaycard Arena and O2 Arena in London. With Beyoncé by his side, JAY-Z may perform at Wembley Stadium in 2018 which would undoubtedly be an unforgettable evening.
2) Taylor Swift
After a two-year hiatus from music, the biggest name in pop has returned to social media and to Spotify. For some this return suggests Taylor Swift will release new music in 2017 and begin a new tour in 2018. Taylor Swift hasn’t toured since her 2015 World Tour, but her incredible popularity would likely mean she would perform at London’s Wembley Stadium in 2018. Last year, Taylor Swift released a hugely popular single with Zayn Malik, could another collaboration be on the cards?
3) Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin have been broken up for years but a mysterious comment on lead singer Robert Plant’s website ‘Any Time Now…’ has encouraged fans to think a reunion of Led Zeppelin could be on the cards. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin and would provide the perfect opportunity for a tour across the UK. Imagine the chance to see the biggest names in rock music return to the stage for the performance of a lifetime.
4) Britney Spears
After the announcement of finishing her hugely successful residency in Las Vegas, Britney Spears is back. Britney Spears has been performing her biggest hits at shows in Israel and the Philippines and, excitement has been building about a potential show in London.
