Belfast set to rock as giants of pop arrive
Ulster is getting ready to rock for a season of big-name shows.
For three months some of the world's best-known rock and pop acts will be coming to Belfast to play at the Odyssey arena.
Take That, will be starting their Beautiful World tour in Belfast next week.
The world-famous pop group will play five nights at the Odyssey on October 11, 12, 14, 15 and 16. Tickets to see the band sold out within minutes of going on sale, but a limited number were released today.
November sees the return of Odyssey regular Rod Stewart. The Glaswegian crooner plays Belfast on November 3 and 4.
Latino heart-throb Enrique Iglesias will wow his fans at the Odyssey on Tuesday, November 6, while McFly, UB40 and The Stereophonics will all be in town throughout the month.
Emo favourites My Chemical Romance will make their Belfast debut at The King's Hall on Saturday, November 17.
US rapper 50 Cent will come to Belfast, playing the Odyssey on November 5. The star just announced details of the show last week, managing to pencil in a date before his music rival Kanye West, who will be at the Odyssey on December 1.
Also in November, Meat Loaf is back in Belfast, playing the Odyssey on the 22nd as part of his Three Bars tour.
December is particularly busy, with Madness, Wet Wet Wet and the hugely-anticipated return of Bruce Springsteen all lined up.
