Sounds of Barcelona

Barcelona is not just Las Ramblas and the Sagrada Familia. The capital of Catalonia is rapidly becoming an essential center of "music tourism", challenging London, its traditional center. This summer two of the great icons of the international pop music scene, U2 and Madonna, will be having massive, blockbuster concerts in here. And Coldplay has chosen our city for a major concert.

On the 20th of May "the Dianna Ross of the 20th century" Beyonce will be giving her only Spanish concert of the season in el Palau Sant Jordi of Barcelona. She will sing her new number one hit "Obsessed" which she sang at the Obama inaugural. Get your tickets now at ticktackticket.

Every time U2 comes here, the city goes insane with the hunt for concert tickets. Everything points to a complete sell-out for both the June 30th and July 2nd concerts, even though they will both be held in the gigantic FC Barcelona soccer stadium. The official online ticket sales is through Spainticketbureau.

Last September Madonna left a sweet impression with her disk "Hard Candy". This year the reigning "Queen of Pop" will try to repeat her hugh success at the Estadio Olympico on July the 21st with her great show specially prepared for the Sticky and Sweet Tour. Get your tickets now at Servicaixa. And last but not least Coldplay will be back in Barcelona.

Coldplay chose Barcelona to present their new disc and offered a private concert that really didn't reach enough ears. So they are coming back in grand style for a September-4th concert in front all their fans, at least as many as will fit into the Estadio Olympico. Don't miss it. Get your tickets now through Servicaixa or through the World Ticket Shop.
