Big Gig 2011
The Big Gig 2011
The Big Gig is the Girl Guides very own pop concert. They tour the UK using a number of different venues. There usually is about 8-10 acts and in previous concerts the acts have included JLS, Pixie Lott, Alexander Burke, Tinchy Stryder, Taio Cruz, The Saturdays and many more.
The Big Gig has been running for 10 years but this year has been the biggest yet. Hosted by Helen Skelton, off Blue Peter, there was a huge line up which included:
There were 3 shows this year, 2 afternoon performances and 1 evening performances. I was lucky enough to get a first hand experience of the afternoon performance on Saturday.
The opening act was Olly Murs who had a surprise appearance of Rizzle Kicks which made the audience go wild.
The all time favourite, The Wanted, was the last act on and as far as band go they were the biggest. There was also Parade who, surprisingly, was a great success. Another great success was Alexis Jordan.
The act that was most popular was Ed Sheeran who not only sang his song The A-team but also made his own song using his guitar, his rapping skills and the audience. He sang so well everyone was out of there seats and singing along.
This years Big Gig was great success and I am definitely looking forward to next years which I’m sure is going to be even better!!!
