Concert love: Ed Sheeran and Demi Lovato's Tour

Well hello to you my reader chums! From the beginning, this blog has always been a place to document my favourite life moments and today I wanted to share two the best concerts I've ever been to this past month: Demi Lovato and Ed Sheeran. Demi Lovato's tour was originally on the 10th June, however was postponed to the 25th and Ed Sheeran's took place on the 17th June. In the space of over a week I managed to see two of my favourite artists live, and experienced two of the best nights of my life.

When it came to purchasing Ed tickets, I'm still surprised I managed to get four standing ones at Wembley Stadium. As you can imagine we we're all so excited before the build up for the event - and as we had standing tickets, we were determined to get as close to the front as possible. 

Fast forward to the actual day and we were lucky enough to get around 9 rows back from the stage - and out of all the concerts I've been to, I have never been that close. For Wembley Stadium especially, we felt even more lucky to get such a brilliant spot.

The two opening acts were Jamie Lawson and Anne-Marie. I'm a massive Anne-Marie fan; her new album has such a cool vibe about it and seeing it live was something else. She's one of those performers whose personality shines through on stage - and honestly has the best natural sense of humour. I loved seeing her live, and would definitely go to a whole show of hers.

Ed's show was on another level of performance. Given it was only him and a guitar on stage, and he had to fill the whole of Wembley Stadium - he did a pretty epic job. As he is such a famous artist, I had a small worry about whether he wouldn't come across down to earth, however I was wrong. Ed was one of the most down to earth artists on stage, and sounded so appreciative for all his success. His performance was out of this world; he held the crowd, had the most sensational voice and really rocked the stadium. My highlights were Photograph, Perfect, Galway Girl, The A Team and Lego House.

For my first time at Wembley, I had one of the most memorable nights! Standing up for 7+ hours was completely worth it as you really can't beat the electric concert atmosphere. I'm so thankful I got to see Ed Sheeran live!

Demi Lovato's Tell Me You Love Me tour

Demi Lovato has been my idol for years and years, and I've wanted to see her live for the longest time. I've waited for her to announce a UK tour (as she's only really tours in the US) for a long time that when it finally happened, I had to get tickets. When they were released, I was actually on the train to Paris but didn't let the bad signal stop me and managed to get a pair.

Demi Lovato has spoke about her mental health struggles for years, through her songs, in interviews and on social media. In the hardest times of my own mental health, I really related to Demi's music and it helped me to an extend feel stronger, and feel like I can get through it. Having that sentiment behind her songs made seeing her live an even more special, and emotional experience. Her songs will always hold a special place in my heart, and I'll forever admire her strength of how she overcame the struggles and insecurities.

Her opening acts were Joy and Jax Jones, who both warmed up the stage in different ways for Demi's presence. When Demi walked on the stage, a whole new level of excitement came about along with my inner fan girl, and I couldn't believe the moment had arrived. She looked stunning, her voice blew the roof off the 02, and every single song was beautiful for different reasons. Demi sauced it up for her dance numbers, held herself for the more emotional songs, and really got the crowd going. It was a concert like no other and I couldn't help scream my heart out to every song! She did a mixture of the Tell Me You Love Me album and a few of her old classics, which was a fantastic surprise.

I had so many highlights, but the most special moment was when she sung Warrior. It's one of those songs which holds a big place in my heart and I couldn't help crying as soon as the first word played. As we were queuing up, all the fellow fans were handing out green paper to hold on the phone's light when the song was played - as the stadium filled the room with green lights (which represents strength), it was a touching and mesmerising few minutes. Sober, her newest song was another truly heart wrenching moment as you could really feel her emotional pain when she sung every word. Other highlights included Heart Attack, Sorry not Sorry, Tell Me You Love Me, Instruction, Give your Heart a Break and Confident.

I'm in awe I've seen my idol live on stage. It'll be a night I never forget and I hope to see her live once more. Demi, thank you for always teaching your fans to be strong, and to love themselves for who they are.

I hope you enjoyed this concert post. What was your favourite concert?
