THE STAPLES CENTER
Just one month away, The 55th Annual Grammy Awards is spanning out to be the most anticipated awards show of 2013. According to the Grammy's Twitter handle, the first round of performers for music's biggest night were announced and include Mumford and Sons, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna. The guys from fun., and The Black Keys will be performing for the first time as well.
Fun. and Mumford & Sons are two of six artists this year who lead with six nominations and are both up for the Best New Artist award. Two-time Grammy winners The Black Keys nabbed five noms while five-time Grammy Award winner Rihanna and six-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift each scored three nominations. Safe to say this is a solid line up of musical talent and will be the key ingredient of the overall night, however, we're still crossing our fingers that an electronic music act could earn a spot in the coveted Grammy performance line up. Hey, we can only hope, right?
After Kaskade became the first EDM artist to solo-headline and sell out The Staples Center in LA last week, the venue is hotter than ever. So it’s no surprise that Tiesto is following suit, announcing his concert for October 20th, 2012.
The venue holds just over 18,000 people, less than the 26,000 fans who poured into the neighboring Home Depot Center in masses to see Tiesto last year at the largest single DJ event in US history. Nonetheless, we can expect yet another sold-out show from the incredibly talented producer.
