On the evening of 2 July, 2023, South Korean four-piece, Blackpink made history as the first K-pop band to headline a major UK festival, and they did so with a dazzling performance at BST Hyde Park. As the sun began to set, Hyde Park’s skyline was filled with a sea of phones, excited screams, and children perched on their parents’ shoulders, eagerly awaiting the arrival of their favourite girl group.
Depression and anxiety are mental health challenges that so many people battle on a daily basis. Depression is a neuropsychiatric disorder that attracts a lot of attention in the world of medical science. Finding a way to combat the impact that this disorder has on people and helping patients to improve their mental health is a top research priority.
That is why there is a lot of excitement surrounding the use of TMS therapy for depression, especially when anti-depression medication doesn’t work for everyone.
Last Thursday – 29 June 2023 – was a memorable hot summer evening. At the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in London, Californian rock crooner Chris Isaak – who for me is Elvis‘ heir, delivered a performance that showcased his exceptional musical talent and innate ability to entertain. The concert was an amalgamation of Isaak’s own hits, covers of rock and roll classics, and his signature slapstick routine, making for a captivating experience. With a genuine love for the pioneers of rock and roll, Isaak successfully captured the spirit of the era, delighting the audience with his authentic renditions and original creations.
Last night – 1st July 2023, I had the opportunity to attend the Take That gig at BST Hyde Park. It was the third time for me, recalling their gigs in 2012 with Robbie Williams, 2016 at BST, and now. The anticipation was palpable as the trio, formed by Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald, took the stage, accompanied by a highly skilled band and dancers. Special guests Lulu and Calum Scott also made appearances throughout the evening. With a sold-out crowd of 65,000 eager fans, the atmosphere was electric, and I knew I was in for a night to remember.

Guns N’ Roses, the legendary US rock band, graced the stage at BST Hyde Park on 30 June, 2023, and it was an experience that transcended all expectations.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing talented musician Demian Dorelli, who writes music inspired by artwork, with a new album available from 14th July 2023 (Pre order link for album: https://platoon.lnk.to/mywindowalbum).
In the dimly lit studio, the air is filled with the sound of melancholic melodies, intertwining with the gentle rustling of sheet music. The atmosphere is serene, almost ethereal, as the soft keystrokes of a grand piano resonate with emotion. In this hallowed space, Demian Dorelli, the multifaceted musician, immerses himself in the timeless beauty of music.
