This must be pop: Taylor Swift, McBusted, Blue and Jessie J on sale

What’s the deal with this pop life and when is it going to fade out? Never, if these fantastic pop acts have anything to say about it.

Today not one, not two, but four massive pop acts are on sale right now and you can buy tickets to their tours, gig and performances all over the UK. The only trouble now is deciding which acts to see, so we thought we’d help you choose with a little look at the poptastic line-up.

Taylor Swift

Swifties prepare because the American princess of pop is heading to British shores next year.

The Pennsylvania native’s latest album, 1989,  sold 1.287 million copies in the United States during the first week of its release and was the fastest selling album in the last 12 years. Swift is the kind of singer that can sell anything, even total silence, which is exactly what was accidentally released under the name Track 3 before the album was launched and ended up topping the Canadian iTunes chart, despite literally being eight seconds of white noise.

Hopefully she’ll be avoiding the white noise and showing off some of her upbeat classics for the UK tour, like Shake It Off, which you can hear below.

Get your tickets for Glasgow and Manchester here. Be Swift, in case they sell out.

McBusted

Loved McFly? Loved Busted? You’ll love McBusted even more.

The British superband formed only a few years ago but already sold out a previous 2014 tour. The next tour, which kicks off in Glasgow in March 2015, will feature some old classics from both of the band’s back catalogues as well as new material from their forthcoming self-titled début album.

Relive their mash-up magic and get a taste of what they’ll be performing at their live shows with the video below.

Don’t wait until The Year 3000, book your tickets here now.

Blue

All Rise because one of Britain’s ultimate boy bands is heading back on tour in 2015.

Blue might have parted ways in 2005 after a string of UK hits, but they reformed soon after for a performance at the Capital FM Summertime Ball in 2009. Since the days of One Love and U Make Me Wanna, the boys have been doing everything from West End musicals to Strictly Come Dancing – Simon Webb is dancing with Russian siren Kristina Rihanoff on the show right now – but will be coming together again for a string of UK dates next year starting in Portsmouth in March.

Relive the glory days with the video below and grab your tickets for the live shows here.

Jessie J

London born Jessie J might be storming it stateside with her latest collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande on the single Bang Bang, but the British star will be staying close to her roots next year with a multi-stadium tour.

Not only did the former The Voice judge scoop a MOBO award for best female, her new album, Sweet Talker, charted at number five in the UK and 10 in the US.

Remind yourself of Jessie’s impossibly wide vocal range with one of her hits below and get your hands on tickets to see her perform live, here.
