So I did a bit of investigating and as it turns out I'm completely wrong. Edinburgh clearly hasn't been left behind - a lot more up and coming artists are picking Edinburgh as their tour destination of choice and apparently a lot of them are coming in the next week - how did I miss this?
With brilliant venues like the HMV Picture House and the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, our city has a lot to offer for both the fan and the artist. Brit Award winner Ellie Goulding hits town tomorrow followed by the stylish Paloma Faith (who I love, love, love) and indie band Marina & the Diamonds on Tuesday. On Wednesday Tinchy Stryder's taking to the stage and on Monday tickets go on sale for the Jon Bon Jovi and Kings of Leon gigs at Murrayfield stadium next summer. Nice one Edinburgh!
