The Kicks Entertainment team (Foreshore, Warehouse etc) have announced they’re bringing the big, big name of David Guetta to Canberra to play Stage88 in Commonwealth Park.

4th of May see’s Canberra play host to the world’s biggest music star David Guetta, brought to you by Canberra’s hit music station, 104.7 and Kicks Entertainment.

With in excess of 25 million fans on Facebook and over half a billion views on YouTube, multiple Grammy Award Winner David Guetta is one of the most watched people on the planet. His latest album ‘Nothing But The Beat’ has surpassed 1.4 million sales in just over 18 weeks, including a staggering 6 million single sales. This comes as little surprise when it includes hits such as ‘Turn Me On’ (feat Nicky Minaj) ‘Little Bad Girl’ (feat. Taio Cruz & Ludacris),’Titanium’ (feat. Sia), Sweat (feat Snoop Dogg) and ‘Without You’ (Feat.Usher).

In addition to selling more than 5 million albums worldwide since his 2001 debut, Guetta produced Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling”, the highest-selling digital release in music history.

Joining David Guetta at Stage 88 in May, are Bombs Away, Timomatic and local hero’s Jared de Veer and Rawson.

If David Guetta is a mystery to you, he’s number 143 on Things Bogans Like.

Here’s a sample:

Depends on the DJ. Quite a few do actually make music as well. If Davids’ performance is anything like the others “DJs” I have seen, it will be more like a dance party than a concert and he may play both his own and other artists music.

And just because they use computers and keyboards to make their music doesn’t means they are not musicians.

Pretty much every DJ that makes it internationally is also a producer/writer/composer/whatever you want to call it. You can’t get big these days just being a DJ, and more and more the term (DJ) is being used to describe someone who produces/composes/djs, and even people who don’t DJ (Deadmau5/Daft Punk)

I always get the impression that the old farts that post on here about how they’ve never heard of so and so, are also about the last that you’d get going to a music festival anyway. They might consider a seated ticket at Credence Clearwater, or Elton John, but nothing new or not hackneyed.

I dont know. Im a pretty hep cat. Im up with the latest trends like you kids with your mop tops and Dave Clark 5.

You probably need to check the dictionary Thumper, I think you nwill find a musician is one who makes music, be that playing or writing. I have certainly seen people that can play a turntable.

Right at the moment this guy could sell out madison square garden 5 nights running or pull 50,000 to hyde park in london, it may not be your cup of tea but kudos to the orgasnisers for getting him, just dont go if you dont like it.

No, no. You said, and I quote He’s a producer mate. In case you’re wondering, that means he writes music that other people sing over.

You said he was a producer. Producers are not writers. Writers are writers. Simple as that. By your reckoning George Martin wrote all the Beatles tracks, after all, he produced them. Of course, Phil Spectre produced some later stuff, so he should also get a writing credit.

By the way, Alan Parsons engineered some of the tracks as well.

Musicians play music, not regurgitate the recordings of others. DJs regurgitate the music of others. A turntable is not a musical instrument, well, not the last time I looked.

I don’t give a stuff about this guy. At no point did I criticise him or what he does. Good on him, not my scene, but so what.

I think you may need to get into the music business or a studio a bit more to understand some terms before you go mouthing off.

haha, it wasn’t me, I was just butting in.

Why so serious ? it’s just music, it doesn’t have any rules……..open your ears and there is 30 years of fabulous computer based music out there for your enjoyment. Recommend you start with bands like Stanton Warriors, A-skillz and krafty kuts, it has a soull kind of groove. You might want to stay away from dubstep early on as that stuff is really hard to get.

Sorry man 🙂

Just explaining to the older generation… Guetta is a composer of electronic music but the kids call composers “producers” now, probably because “composer”sounds a bit old schooley and also because the guy who cleaned up, mixed, added backing tracks, etc, is more talented these days than the Wynter Gordon or some other stripper who looks good in a music video, so gradually morphed into what Guetta does.

If you like disco pop (and I do) them this is great news. I tend to boycott Kicks events though because I’m not paying top dollar to pretend their events are raves, they usually trend to have something for everyone meaning everyone gets bored for a while and I object to corporations using public space in that way.

Imagine if we could sacrifice David Guetta to raise the ghost of Freddie Mercury to play this gig?

Now that I’d pay good money to see!

My 17 year old daughter is convinced that there is no god because no reasonable deity would have taken Bob Marley and left us with Justin Beiber. I know nothing about Mr Guetta, but I suspect the Mercury/Guetta comparison is analogous.

I’m with Jim Jones et al. Who the hell is David Guetta?

Mind. Blown.

David Guetta is HUGE. EVERYONE under 25 knows who David Guetta is. Itd be like saying in 1980: Freddy Mercury? Who’s that?

Incredible to get him to Canberra considering every other big name skips us.

Didnt like Freddie Mercury either.

This comment hurt me – really did.

Its become compulsory to like certain DJs (why are they called artists?

Calling DJs “artists”? You’re not serious? That’d be like calling rappers “musicians”.

No. Writers write music. Producers produce it.

Huge distinction.

ie, George Martin did not write Beatles songs, he produced them. It’s a part of the recording process.

There already is such a site. It’s the American blog that the Things Bogans Like site is modelled off.

The irony of it is that David Guetta is loved by all the kids yet he’s 44 years old, a most uncool age to someone who’s just out of their teens. The equivalent is Michael Buble being loved by oldies.

This Guetta bloke isn’t a musician for starters. He is a DJ, end of story.

I’m a bit confused about that bogan list;

They like cheap petrol, low interest rates, going to the gym, australian made, australian television and news, self help books and diets, post-christmas sales, so the like to save money, residential property investment, freedom of speech, australian starts, wine tours, australian football, they like being tradies and mineworkers, tax refunds and bashing hippies…

TBL should be renamed “Mainstream things that lefties and their superiority complexes don’t agree with”.

Come to it, someone needs to start a “Things liberals like and want to force you to like” website. Priuses or small Euro diesels. Public education. Acknowledging the traditional custodians of the land at every and any opportunity. Union involvement in labour markets. Higher taxes on the rich and lower taxes on themselves. Seriously, there’s enough material there for years of weekly updates.

Been to last 3 BDOs, last 4 Homebake’s

David Guetta is shit. Actually he’s not shit, he spins other people’s shit.

DJs are not musicians. No more than the people who are contracted to spin other people’s music at Blue Light Discos.

Get in a RATM moshpit, there’s some music right there
