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:

Actually I find it hard to believe he would be as high as #143 on things bogans like. Way to euro dance scene which is not a bogan thing.

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…

Isn’t that just a list of what people like? Specifically Australians, if you change all the above “Australia’s” in the American, then we have americans, etc.

Anyways…

I hope this show is better then Heatwave….

TBL’s numbering system is chronological, not a rating scale. Although if there were a rated list, Guetta’s global dance/pop music dominance would put him towards the pointy end. He’s remixed or produced a staggering number of hit songs in the past couple of years.

I’m not a big fan, but I’m amazed that the promoter has managed to snag him for a gig in Canberra.

Kicks Entertainment really should learn how apostrophes work if they’re going to put out media releases.

10 seconds was enough to convince me of the same.

Maybe they’ll try putting on some talent one year.

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.

Not really that incredible when you think that at the last 2 Foreshores the 2 other biggest DJs in the dance music world have also played here 🙂

I’m over 25 and I know who he is. I just don’t think his music is that good, or memorable.

David Who-etta?
Whom is the promoter that seems to have all of these venues stitched up and supplies clowns from the tv singing competition shows? They have some x factor has-been headlining the beer and meat on a stick fest, some other clowns at the Sthn X club, both from those silly no-talent shows.
I feel qualified to comment as I am a mullet wearing bogan and proud of it. I also regularly venture out of the house to see live music and even play it myself on occasion.
A couple of years ago Dragon were on at Stage 88 and they were as good as a band can get. Cassie Davies or whatever her name was, an ex Aust Idol or similar followed and she was awful. Reading lyric from a laptop sitting on a stool. I wonder what ever happened to her.. no I don’t. Good riddance.
Anyway, should be cool to catch Katie Noonan tonight. She can sing and the Captains can play a bit too.

Didnt like Freddie Mercury either. Its become compulsory to like certain DJs (why are they called artists?) if you are a certain age? Or is this some sort of passive aggressive peer pressure at work?

Surely you all know the song ‘Memories’ that he did with Kid Cudi? You know, with the naked (female) film crew in the back ground?

As for him being on the bogan list, WTF?! Chisel or a bit of Meatloaf maybe but how the hell did David Guetta get on there!

I’m pretty impressed he’s coming to Canberra too.
